Laverne “Baysh” Robert Lussier, age 69, of Red Lake, Minnesota, passed away on Saturday, August 22, 2020, at Red Lake IHS Hospital.
Laverne was born on May 22, 1951, in Red Lake, MN to James Lussier and Christina Johnson. As a young boy, his family moved to Chicago where he grew up. He returned to Red Lake when he turned 18 and chose a profession working for Red Lake Forestry where he stayed for over 30 years as a firefighter and in the greenhouse. Education was important to him as was shown when he earned his GED in 1996. Laverne lived over 25 years with his partner in life, Marilyn Feather, and together they raised two sons, Lydell Feather and Robin Lussier.
Laverne loved trapping and all of the outdoors. He was a kind-hearted man, caring for everyone and always willing to lend a helping hand. He loved his family, especially his 16 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter whose name is Cherish.
Laverne will be greatly missed by his daughter Kari Lussier; sons Lydell Feather and Robin Lussier; 16 grandchildren; great-granddaughter Cherish; brothers Gerald Lussier and Ervin Lussier; sister Barbara Ramos; and special niece Mary Lussier. He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Myrna Beaulieu, and brothers Allen and Rusty Lussier.
A wake for Laverne will begin Wednesday, August 26, 2020, at 3:00pm at the Red Lake Community Center, and will continue until the service on Friday, August 28, at 11:00am. Pallbearers caring for Laverne will be Lacaun Lussier, Dayon Lussier, Robin Lussier, Lydell Feather, Gerald Lussier, Ervin Lussier, and alternate Myron Martin. Honorary pallbearers will be Paul Peterson, Tyrese Barrett, Alvin Johnson, Sr., Darryl Waybenais, and Gilbert Lussier.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes;
there shall be no more death,
nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain,
for the former things have passed away.
Then He who sat on the throne said,
“Behold, I make all things new.”
And He said to me, “Write, for these words
are true and faithful.” And He said to me,
“It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the Beginning and the End. I will give of the
fountain of the water of life freely to him
who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit
all things, and I will be his God and
he shall be My son.”
Arrangements are being provided by Whispering Pines Funeral & Cremation Service, of Walker, MN.
