Auburn- Roger C. Lachance, 86, of Broad St. Auburn died after a long illness on Wednesday April 11, with his loving family at his side. He passed away in the family home where he was born on November 15, 1931 a son of the late Cleophas and Eva (Boisvert) Lachance. He was educated in Auburn. Roger proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Force. In his younger years he lived in California and Connecticut but moved back to Maine and settled in his family’s home. He was a house painter for many years. He was known for his excellent and hard work ethic. Before his illness, Roger enjoyed painting pictures and gardening plants and flowers. He often found old furniture pieces which he liked to refurbish. Even though he didn’t spend as much time as he would have liked with his children, due to the fact they were in California, they always knew he loved them and how much family meant to him.
