Passing of Maurice Durocher - father of Msgr Paul-André Durocher - January 26, 2018
It is with sadness but also with hope that we announce the passing of Mr. Maurice Durocher, father of Archbishop Paul-André Durocher, at the age of 86.
Last Saturday, Mr. Durocher slipped and fell on a patch of ice at his home in Hawkesbury.
Suffering from multiple fractures, he was admitted to the trauma center of the Ottawa Civic Hospital.
He died as a result of medical complications early this morning, January 26, 2018.
He leaves to mourn his wife, Lucille Duplantie, his seven children and eight grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren, as well as two sisters and a brother, numerous relatives and close friends.
We entrust him to the Lord's mercy and we will keep him and his family in our thoughts and prayers.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated in Hawkesbury. We will provide more information soon.
