Gerard Lachance Obituary, Death – Gerard Denis Lachance, who was 72 years old and lived in Yarmouth, Massachusetts, passed away at his home on the Cape on March 21, 2023. Gerry Lachance was the sixth and final child to be born to Lucien and Lucy Lachance on March 9, 1951. He was born in Worcester, Massachusetts. He attended Holy Name High School, where he competed in three different sports during his time there.
During his lifetime, Gerry was involved in a wide variety of business ventures. He was the owner of Paxton Marketplace and worked as a distributor for Pepperidge Farm, Cape Cod Chips, and Snyder’s. Gerry’s most recent and fondest endeavor was owning and operating the P&D Farm Stand in Dennis, Massachusetts. His dedication to his work was unwavering.
You could find Gerry, when he wasn’t working, coaching his son’s baseball teams, watching his daughter’s dance recitals, making wooden crafts, or taking long car rides exploring the Cape with his wife. All of these things he did when he wasn’t working. He cherished his role as a grandfather (also known as “Pop”) and was able to relate to his grandchildren’s interests in all things animated. Gerry is survived by his wife of 45 years, Patricia Lachance, who lives in Yarmouth;
Also, his daughter, Kara Hendrickx, who lives in Dennis, Massachusetts, along with her husband, Ezra Hendrickx; his son, Patrick Lachance, who lives in Sterling, Massachusetts, along with his wife, Kelley Lachance; and his five grandchildren, Connor, William, Hannah, Finn, and Rory. On Thursday, April 6, 2023, from 3 to 5 pm, there will be a visitation held at Chapman Funerals & Cremations, which is located at 58 Long Pond Drive in South Yarmouth, Massachusetts 02664.
In the future, in Paxton, Massachusetts, there will be a private burial service followed by a Celebration of Life. Gerry made himself a chocolate frappe on the evening of Monday, March 20, 2023, sat down in his new recliner, wrapped himself in his cozy blanket, turned on the game, enjoyed his frappe, and then closed his eyes. Father, I pray that you are finally at peace.
