It is with great sorrow and a deep sense of loss that we announce the passing of Roger Damphousse on March 23, 2019 at the Ottawa Hospital General Campus at the age of 75. He was predeceased by his father and mother, Lionel Damphousse and Eva Damphousse (Charlebois) of Vanier, ON. He is deeply mourned by his common-law wife, love and dear friend Lucie Gosset (aka Lauren Hall) and her son Nick (Tracy) Gosset.
Survived by his children, Alain, Sandra, Nathalie Laplante (Stéphane Charlebois); grandpapa (GP) to Keven and Jessica Damphousse, Audrée and Michaël La Salle, great granddaughter Laïla Damphousse.
Already greatly missed by his siblings Helene (Andre Landry), Claude (Monique Raymond), Claire, Pauline (Peter Sinclair) and Aline (Mauro Cuccaro). Uncle Rog was very special to his nieces and nephews : Sylvie and Guylaine Roy, Mélanie, Chantal and Michel Damphousse and Chanel Damphousse as well as great nephews and nieces. Up to the last minute, Roger enjoyed a very successful career for 32 years with Fenex Windows and Doors in Orleans and will forever be remembered by all his colleagues for his wit and gregarious laugh.
Roger had a wide range of interests but his greatest passion was music. In 2007, along with his brother Claude (aka Quincy), they were inducted in the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame. Musicians from across the country, north, south, east and west, are in deep pain today thinking of their talented and accomplished friend, Roger Rabbit. His other favorite passtime was riding on his Harley with his buddies to see the world. They know who they are. He would want us to thank the wonderful doctors and the nurses of the 5th floor west wing, Ottawa Hospital General Campus, for their excellent care and Dr. Prisilla Bright, his personal GP.
As per Roger’s wish, there will be no visitation or service. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
Let the Good Times Roll
Laissez les bons temps rouler
