Obituary of Lucien Adelard Ethier
It is with broken hearts we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Lucien, on Monday, February 5, 2024 at the age of 46.
Lucien is known and will be remembered for his caring, loving, and compassionate nature. He led with loyalty, and was a friend to all. Lucien was the one you called in times of joy and in times of need. The one you loved to share a story, a laugh, and a drink with.
From his time as a boy on the farm in Bellsite, MB to his days as an adult in Brandon, Lucien loved to share his enthusiasm and knowledge of the outdoors with anyone who wished to participate. He was an avid outdoorsman, Lucien was in his element when hunting, fishing, farming and trapping.
A trait passed on from his mom Mary - Lucien loved to entertain! From a fish fry, to his gourmet inspirations on the grill, Lucien took great pride and joy providing a memorable meal for family and friends; often paired with “Luch’s Finest”, his homemade brew.
For over 20 years, Lucien served and protected his community as a Constable with the Brandon Police Service. Lucien was a Firearms Instructor and assigned to the National Weapons Enforcement Support Team.
Lucien is survived by his spouse and soulmate, Lindsay; son, Ethan; siblings: Sherry, Renee, Lionel, Serge, Marlon, their families, and Lucien’s cherished Labradors, Nix and Echo. Lucien is predeceased by his Mom, Mary, and his Dad, Ed Ethier.
A Celebration of Lucien’s Life will take place at the Victoria Inn -Grand Salon Banquet Room, 3550 Victoria Ave, Brandon, MB, on Saturday, March 2, 2024 at 6:00 p.m. for family, friends and all those who wish to raise a glass to such a well-loved man.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks donations be made to the Manitoba Wildlife Federation, 4-999 King Edward Street, Winnipeg, MB, R3H 0R1, in tribute to Lucien.
