This one has a brother named "Bob"...might be related? They lived in the same area.
It is with deep sorrow that the family of Hercule "Herc" Larocque announces his passing at the age of 82 in Prince Albert, SK. Herc will be remembered and sadly missed by his loving wife of 57 years, Cora of Christopher Lake, SK; his children Evelyn (Percy) Paul of Christopher Lake, SK, Leonard (Jeanette) Larocque of Christopher Lake, SK, Leslie Larocque of Prince Albert, SK, Dean Larocque of Innisfail, AB and Charlene Larocque of Christopher Lake, SK; 13 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren; his sister Yvonne (Walter) Umkehrer of Swan River, MB, his brother Ray (Dorothy) Larocque of Saskatoon, SK, his sisters in-law Lil Larocque and Yvette Larocque as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Herc was predeceased by his parents Frank and Marie Larocque, his sisters Rose (Ray) Paul, and Bertha; his brothers Louis, Bob, Andrew (Lucille), an infant brother, twin brother and sister in infancy, his brother in-law Orville Radcliff and his nephew Willie Paul. Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on Saturday, December 23rd, 2006 at 10:30 a.m. from the Notre Dame des Victoires R. C. Church in Victoire, SK. The celebrant was Rev. Fr. Vincent Karatunga and the music directors were Lorna Parent and Gilles Francoeur. Carson Larocque was the cross bearer and the eulogy was read by Jennifer Larocque. Honorary pallbearers were all relatives and friends who shared in Herc's life and the active pallbearers were Rick Paul, Marc Larocque, Arnold Larocque, Leslie Paul, Cory Marchand and Donald Parent. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association. Herc was laid to rest in the Victoire Cemetery. Eulogy for Hercule
Larocque: Everyone here in this room, was somehow touched by this special man and has their own special memories.
Hercules Joseph Larocque was born March 21st, 1924 in St. Victor, Saskatchewan to Marie and Frank Larocque. August 11th, 1949, Herc married Cora Jane Brown and together they had five children, thirteen Grandchildren and twelve Great-Grandchildren. Grandpa had 3 passions in life, other than his family: Auction Sales, the Rodeo and Music. One thing is for sure, Grandpa loved stuff. His boxes of useless treasure are still evident in the three car garage that only houses one vehicle. No matter, when or where if there was a Rodeo, Grandpa would be there. And every Rodeo he went to, he was sure to know someone. Grandpa's greatest passion was his love for music. Whether it was sitting around the kitchen table jamming with a friend, or playing with the Parkland Fiddlers. One of Charlene's fondest memories of Grandpa playing the fiddle was when Cory was about 4 or 5. Grandpa got out the fiddle and was tuning it before playing. After the tuning was done Cory
turned to Grandpa and said "Grandpa, can't you play any better than that." His music always touched our hearts. We will always listen for a good tune to tap our toes along with him. Thank you to everyone for coming out today, to share in our memories of Grandpa.

They had one child, Arnold "Arnie" Larocque, who married Shelley Taylor [Parents unknown] in 1986 at Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. They had two children, Nicolas and Morgan.

Any help appreciated.
