Obituary of Michael Lalonde

Lalonde, Michael (Mike) Gordon

August 17, 1951 - January 20, 2022

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Michael Lalonde on Thursday, January 20, 2022 at the age of 70, with his loving family by his side. Beloved husband of Patricia “Pat” (nee Quick) for 37 years. Loved dearly by his children Richard (Alicsa), Rochelle, Donna (Jeremy) and Danielle (Jerrison). Adored by his grandchildren Avery (Sanjit), Nathaniel, Mason, Cody, Madison, Myles and Drake. Predeceased by his parents, Bernard and Dorothy and his in-laws, Bill and Hazel. Dear brother-in-law to Arthur (Nadeline) and Barbara (Jayson 2019). He will be sadly missed by his many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. He will also be profoundly missed by his best buddy Norm. Mike was a dedicated employee of GM Transmission until his retirement at age 56. He was an avid woodworker, loved his train trips with Pat to the West and East coasts and especially enjoyed the fun times together at their trailer. Mike will be remembered most for his kindhearted and gentle demeanor and for always willing to lend a helping hand. Our family would like to thank all the hospice doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers who went above and beyond to make Mike’s final weeks as peaceful and comforting for him and his family. Also, many thanks to the Bayshore staff for their exceptional home care. Cremation has taken place.
