Lawrence Geoffrey Dutcher
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Lawrence Geoffrey Dutcher of Saint John announce his passing on October 6, 2017 at the age of 89. Born in Bay du Vin, Northumberland County on August 27, 1928, he was the son of the late Geoffery and Emily (Kingston) Dutcher.
Lawrence is survived by his daughters, Linda (Tom) Hachey, Colleen (Wayne) Snow, Deborah (Mike) Webber and Lori (Todd) Kempster; sons, Michael (Colleen) Dutcher and Jeffrey Dutcher; as well as his 11 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
He was predeceased by his daughter, Donna Dutcher and longtime companion, Beatrice Swallow. Lawrence was the sole remaining sibling of brothers, Henry Dutcher, Sylvanus Dutcher, Arnold Dutcher and sisters, Lyna Maguire, Ethel Dykeman and Mildred Flemming.
Our family would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the staff of the Church of St. John and St. Stephen Home who had attended to his care and wellbeing. For this we are grateful.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of Brenan’s Funeral Home, 111Paradise Row, Saint John (634-7424). To honour Lawrence’s wishes there will be no visitation. He will be laid to rest at St. Joseph’s Cemetery following a private family service.
