Robert R. “Chopper” Lacourse, Sr.

Loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and brother
 Robert R. “Chopper” Lacourse, Sr., 76, of Dracut, died peacefully at his home surrounded by his loving family following a brief and courageous battle with cancer. He was the beloved husband of Nancy L. (Cowgill) Lacourse who survives him and with whom he would have celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary on August 5th of this year.
 Born in Lowell, Massachusetts, February 11, 1941, a son of the late Herve J. and the late Irene (Mason) Lacourse, he received his education in the Lowell school system.
 Before retiring, Chopper was employed as a Truck Driver with Toupin Rigging and Lee A. Vinal, Inc. both in Dracut. Previously, he was an Auto Body Repairman at Toyota of Nashua and before that a Stone Cutter at H.E. Fletcher Granite Company in Westford.
 Among his many interests, he was an avid lover of motorcycle riding, fishing and woodworking. He was always there to lend a hand to family and friends. A “Jack” of all trades, as well as a “Master” of all. His favorite past-time was spending time in the backyard with his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
 In addition to his wife Nancy, Bob is survived and deeply missed by two sons Robert R. Lacourse, Jr. and his wife Mary of Dracut, MA and David M.

    Nancy and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I have good memories of my childhood visits to Aunt Irene's when we kids would go across the street to play in the "Sand Bank"....then the boys would hook up a wagon to their St Bernard so we could ride around the yard (that poor dog)...later Bobby/Chop came to my rescue and restored my Mazda to new life after it was wrecked in an accident..excellent workmanship....may you enjoy your heaven and rest in peace...
