Ed Delaroque Obituary, A legendary Coach has passed away -Death

Ed Delaroque Obituary, Death –  We wish to share with you the news that our father, husband, and a legend, Ed de Laroque, has passed away. It is with the deepest sorrow that we make this announcement. Ed de Laroque was raised in the area surrounding Argyle, Manitoba, where he was born on September 28, 1970 to parents Charlie and Lynda de Laroque. Ed played football when he was a teenager, but he was more into hockey when he was younger and into his 20s. In 1995, he tied the knot with Kim Petrie, and the two of them went on to build a life together and have four wonderful children. Ed was the company’s driving force and guiding spirit. Up until 2006, he was employed by his parents. That year, he and Kim purchased the company and assumed control of it. Ed was capable of doing or understanding everything that was put in front of him. Even in recent times, when there was a shortage of staff and things were getting difficult, he did not give up or quit, even though things were difficult. Ed was the man who set the standard for all future hard workers.

Ed possessed natural abilities as a coach, mentor, and leader. As soon as his children began participating in sports, he became very enthusiastic about it. He was a successful coach in the sports of hockey, football, and baseball; many of his teams won an incredible number of championships. He was his children’s number one supporter, and he cheered them on in every activity they participated in, from motocross to Air Cadets, hockey to football, baseball to Irish dance. Ed had a tremendous amount of love for his children and was extremely proud of them. When he wasn’t coaching, you could find him out on the water fishing or hunting. Ed bestowed upon his offspring both his expertise and his enthusiasm for the great outdoors. During the month of July, many long weekends were spent either reeling in cats on the Red River or hauling in pickerel at Grand Rapids. He instructed all four of them in how to hunt and fish, and he was overjoyed at their achievements in those endeavors.

Ed loved to travel. Ed enjoyed traveling to many different places, including Mexico, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, the West Coast, day trips throughout Manitoba, trips to the United States for football games, or even just a simple trip on the side by side to Inwood for some lunch. In addition to many trips for hunting and fishing, Ed enjoyed traveling. Ed had a profound affection for both his family and his friends. Ed placed an incredible amount of importance on his friendships. He may not have been a man of words, but it was never a question whether or not he loved you because of the way he behaved toward you. Ed was a very thoughtful person who exhibited a softer side to the people who were closest to him. He kept this side of himself hidden from others. His wife Kim, his children Dylan (Rachel), Austin, Ciarra, and Brady, his parents Charlie and Lynda de Laroque, his brother and sister and their families, his nephews, Kim’s family and his nieces, and of course all of the friends he loved will miss him terribly. He will also be greatly missed by all of the friends he had in his life.

The following individuals have been selected to serve as honorary pallbearers: Scott Fisher, Mike Tataryn, Jamie Puffalt, Jamie Gray, Stan Grassinger, Donnie de Laroque, Ray Blowers, and Corkie Allarie. A memorial service will be held on Monday, December 5, 2022 at one o’clock in the afternoon at the Stonewall Legion, which is located at 459 Main Street in Stonewall, Manitoba. For those who are unable to attend the service, there will be a reception open from immediately after it concludes until 4:00 p.m. Colleen and Tyson Langrell, the emergency medical technicians, the Headingly RCMP, as well as the nurses and doctor at Stonewall Hospital, deserve our gratitude for everything they did for us that morning.

Donations to the Manitoba Wildlife Federation in Ed’s name can be made in lieu of flowers, if friends so desire. The funds will be used to organize a memorial youth hunt in Ed’s name. Our pledge to you, Ed, is that we will fight, that we will survive, that we will live our lives in honor of you, that we will not quit, that we will not give up, and that you will always be with us. “Hands of steel and a heart made of gold,” that’s how the saying goes.
