It is with great sadness that the family of the late Walter Joseph AuCoin announce his peaceful passing at the Dr. Charles L.

Brother Clem (Madonna), sisters, Leona Gale, Clara Brake (Clive), adopted sister, Christine Gibbons, brothers-in-law Bill AuCoin, many niece and nephews. One niece in particular shines through to us because every chance she had to visit uncle Walter she did. Thank you to LaDawn Gale you never stopped your visits even when he didn’t know who you were. She helped feed him, comb his hair, play cards, bring in treats, etc without any hesitation. Walter will also be missed by many friends and especially his Corner Brook Pulp & Paper woods dept and Sandbar fishing buddies. He is also predeceased by his sisters Cecilia AuCoin & Bernice Hiscock, brother Raymond, son in law Ted Frampton along with his father and mother in-law, Firznam & Margaret Samms and brother & sister in laws. We as a family would like to thank the LTC staff for caring for our loved one and the great affection given to Walter’s wife during his 4 months stay.
