Paul N. Lachance

Paul N. Lachance, 84, died peacefully on May 20, 2020.

Paul was the loving son of the late Dominique and Alphonsine (Giroux) Lachance and grew up in Gedeon, Quebec Province, Canada. As soon as Paul was able he started working.  From the age of sixteen he crossed the border into Maine to work as a lumber jack. In the late 1960’s he moved to Massachusetts and never looked back. He settled in Brockton where he raised his son and would become a successful carpenter and general contractor. Outside of work he could be found at the bowling alley or shooting pool. He was obsessed with staying in shape, often times working out before or after a 12 hour work day. He always found comfort in speaking French and always kept in touch with his extended family in Quebec. Paul was jovial, loving, and  hard working. He loved working with his hands and using his mind to  invent things to make his workday  easier.  Like a true entrepreneur he always pursued the dream of having one of his inventions make him a millionaire. That said, he had many patents and some of his favorites were his ladder attachments and carpenter helpers.

Paul was the loving father of Dominque P. Lachance and his wife Patricia of Bridgewater. Proud “Grampy” of Dominic and Taylor. Brother of Simon, Henri Paul, Antonio, Lucien, Francois, Dianne Tanguay, and the late Guy, Joseph, Marybeth, and Eva. Also survived by many loving nieces, nephews. Paul was the ex-husband of the late Karen Willow.

All services will be held at a later date.
