OBITUARY

Reginald C LaCasse

June 10, 1935September 12, 2019

Old Lyme, Reginald C. LaCasse (Reg/Coach), 84, of 11 Moss Point Trail, passed away on September 12, 2019, surrounded by his family. Reg was born on June 10, 1935 in North Stratford, New Hampshire, the son of Real and Clara LaCasse.

He honorably served 8 years in the United States Army National Guard in Lancaster, New Hampshire. He married the love of his life, Maureen Flynn on August 8, 1959.

Upon graduating from Plymouth Teachers College in 1957, Reg taught in the Whitefield and Peterboro, New Hampshire school systems. In 1961 he moved his family to Connecticut, where he began his decades long career at Lyme-Old Lyme High School, as a history teacher, coach and athletic director.

Coach was an avid sports fan. Not only did he enjoy watching, coaching, refereeing, and umpiring, he could routinely be seen selling and collecting tickets, and keeping the books at various sporting events. Most of all, he enjoyed mentoring all of his student athletes throughout the years.

In his spare time, Reg loved spending time fishing and camping in New Hampshire and Maine with his family. He loved the outdoors, working on his yard and splitting firewood. He spent endless hours collecting coins and solving puzzles, all while satisfying his sweet tooth. He never met an oreo that he turned down.

Reg is survived by his loving wife, Maureen, of 60 years, his daughters, Maurie Jette, Melissa Facchini, and Megan Muszynski, his son, Mark LaCasse and his wife, Amber, his son Matthew LaCasse and his wife, Stacy, and his brother, Ronald LaCasse, of Groveton, New Hampshire. Poppie will be dearly missed by his 14 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. He is predeceased by two of his children, Michele Joy and Michael LaCasse, and his sister, Muriel Farrington.

Calling hours will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., with a brief celebration of his life immediately following at Fulton-Theroux Funeral Home, 13 Beckwith Lane, Old Lyme, Connecticut.

I hold happy memories of my times with Reg. In school or, more usually, when referring soccer games. Rest easy, my friend!
