Roy was born July 29th, 1941 to Michael & Marie Lamirande in St. Ambroise, MB and was raised there. He worked for the Mushroom Plant and then moved on to work for Ellwood-McRorie Construction and Carpentry. Roy also worked for various farmers and side jobs.
Dad loved hunting, fishing and trapping with his children and close friends. He also loved planting gardens. Dad had a big heart and helped anyone he could. He had an amazing sense of humor that lit up a room and would make everyone laugh with his jokes. Dad gave his heart to the Lord and he walked with him until his passing.
Dad was an amazing man and he will be missed dearly by all of his family and friends. Until we meet again.
