Death – It is with heavy hearts that we come together to honor and remember the life of Norm Lacasse, whose recent passing leaves an immense void in our hearts and community. Norm was not just an esteemed Lifetime Member of Port Credit Branch 82 of the Royal Canadian Legion; he was a dedicated individual who spent an impressive 37 years serving his community with unwavering commitment. Born and raised in Blind River, Norm’s pursuit of education took him to Sault Ste Marie at St. Mary’s College and later to Sheridan College. He later joined the military and proudly served as a member of the Canadian Airborne Regiment.
Norm had a keen passion for unraveling mysteries, especially within the realm of murder cases in the Criminal Case Game. His sharp intellect and love for challenges were evident in his daily pursuit of Brain Dares. We’ll fondly remember the joy he found in uncovering hidden objects in June’s Journey, a simple amusement that always brought a smile to his face. Within the Royal Canadian Legion, Norm held various roles, each contributing significantly to the organization’s betterment. From serving as our disciplined Sergeant at Arms to fostering a welcoming environment as Canteen Chair, his impact was profound. His dedication to mentoring aspiring young individuals as the Cadet Liaison and commitment to philanthropy as the District B Charitable Foundation Chair exemplified his selflessness and desire to make a positive impact.
Living nearby on Elizabeth Street, Norm was always there, ready to offer a helping hand or support at Branch 82. His green thumb brightened our front gardens, a small but vivid reminder of his care and dedication. Norm Lacasse’s absence leaves a void that will be deeply felt. His kind smile, dedication, and unwavering commitment to service will forever be cherished. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
