Lawrence Ralph Bouchard passed away at home on August 24, 2019 at the age of 64. Lawrence was born in Redvers, Saskatchewan on December 18, 1954 to parents Rose and Cyril Bouchard. He began his young adult life in Saskatchewan with his many brothers and sisters. After graduation and working in the tire business for several years, Lawrence then decided to venture off to Alberta where he began his long and successful career in the oil patch. Lawrence moved the family north to Fort St. John in 1995, where they spent the next 12 years. In 2007 the work had moved back to the Alberta side, so the move to Gordondale happened. He purchased a quarter section of land and built a house. He loved living out in the country and would tell everyone that this is where he would stay.
Along the way, Lawrence had four children, all boys in which he was very proud. Lawrence also spent the last 29 years with his loving wife Denise. Lawrence enjoyed the simple things in life. Spending time with his family was number one on his list. He also enjoyed camping, quadding, and the occasional golf game.
Lawrence is survived by his wife Denise, children Chris, Conrad, Cole (Sydney), and Brandon (Leslie), his beautiful grandchildren Emylie, Nate, Grace, and Abby, as well as many brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews.
Lawrence was predeceased by both his parents Rose and Cyril Bouchard, in-laws Doug and Milissa Potter, and Ken Reuer.
