Atchison, Lawrence Anton (Ouchy)
June 30, 1942 – January 5, 2014
Born June 30, 1942 in Prince Rupert, B.C. to Harvey and Marjorie. Ouchy left us unexpectedly on January 5, 2014. He grew up in various coastal
communities as his family “chased the fish” but Prince Rupert was
always his home. He married his high school sweetheart, Wendy, in 1964, and then purchased the
second love of his life, the Miss Cory, on which he fished until his
retirement. With Wendy and their three children, Cory, Chris and
Roger, and their families, he shared his work ethic (commercial fishing); love of sport (curling and his Montreal Canadiens); and family time in
Disneyland, Maui, and Lakelse. He greatly appreciated his daily escapades with the boys of the Breakers Coffee Club that brought endless stories of laughter.
Much loved, Ouchy will be sadly missed by his wife, Wendy; children, Cory (Gary) McLaughlin (Liam and Calleigh), Chris (Tracey) Atchison
(Hunter and Quinn), Roger (Teresa) Atchison (Marcus, Cole, Renae and
Halle); sister, Hazel (Wayne) Holliston (Darren and Wendy); mother-in-law,
Johanna Christensen; and sister-in-law, Judy (Duncan) Irvine.
A celebration of Ouchy’s life will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2014 from 2 – 5pm at Breakers Pub.
The family would like to thank Judy Rea and Jennifer Nelson at the Prince Rupert Cancer Clinic for all of their support and care of Ouchy.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the North Coast Health
Improvement Society for Prince Rupert Cancer Services.
