Lessard BenoitLESSARD, Benoit Joseph Lessard  - Wednesday, March 26, 1941 - Thursday, July 22, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passage of Benoit Joseph Lessard in Oshawa on July 22, 2021.

Loving father of Nancy (Michael) and grandfather of Keean.

Ben (aka Frenchie) was a like a second father to many and will is lovingly remembered by Tim, Gary, Dave and many others.

Fondly remembered by his siblings, extended family and friends.

As per his explicit wishes, there will be no viewing or services - for those who knew and loved him, this makes perfect sense.

Online messages of condolence and memories may be left for the family by visiting  barnesmemorialfuneralhome.com .

** Donations in memory of Ben may be directed to The Heart & Stroke Foundation or The Diabetes Society


C'est avec une grande tristesse que nous annonçons the décès the Benoit Joseph Lessard le 22 juillet, 2021 à Oshawa.  

Père dévoué de Nancy (Michael) et grand-papa de Keean. 

Ben (Frenchie) était considéré come un deuxième père à plusieurs et Tim, Gary, Dave et bien d'autres se souviendront de lui avec amour.

Ses frères, soeurs, famille élargie et amis se souviendront de lui affectueusement.  Selon ses souhaits explicites, il n'y aura pas de services- pour ceux qui le connaissaient et l'aimaient, cela est parfaitement logique.
