Lawrence “Fern” Champagne
On November 14, 2019, Lawrence “Fern” Champagne passed away peacefully in Kelowna, B.C. with his wife of 58 years and daughter by his side. Fern was predeceased by his father, Frank; mother Elsie; and sister, Alvina. He leaves behind his loving wife Margaret; daughter Crystal (Randy); sons Tom (Jacquie), Gary, Bill, and Lawrence & Perry Greenwood; grandchildren Jordan (Rebecca), Kendahl, Amber, Justin, Ryan and Hope; and great grandchildren Aradia and Jesse. Fern will also be missed by his sister Dorothy; brothers, Earl (Doreen), Raymond (Bernice), Dennis (Irene), Alan (Sheila), and Garry; along with many nieces and nephews.
Fern was a hard-working truck driver for over 37 years, who was an avid golfer, a great dancer and enjoyed watching TV. He will always be remembered for his devilish grin and flirting with the ladies, although he only had eyes for his wife. He had a great sense of humour, and liked to act tough but was always loving, thoughtful and his family meant everything to him. Fern will be always loved, forever missed, and never forgotten by his family and all the people whose life he touched.
The family will not be having a celebration of life until late spring. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, www.heartandstroke.ca. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com.
