ANDREW JOSEPH LAMOTHE
March 14, 1933 - April 12, 2023
It is with saddened hearts we announce the sudden passing of Andrew Joseph Lamothe on April 12, 2023, at Riverview Health Centre. He was 90 years old.
Andrew leaves to mourn his loving wife of 65 years, Shirley (nee Evans), sons, Brad (Nancy), Craig (Shelley), five grandchildren, Kyle (May), Nicole (Shannon), Scott (Ashley), Kevin (Kayla), Kelsey (Robert), five great-grandchildren, Paisley, Jasper, Nora, Owen, Lily-Rose , sister Aline Marrin (Lindsay) and many nieces and nephews. Andrew was predeceased by son Brent and will be interred together.
Andy was a natural leader and mentor to many working in industrial services. He started and ended his career with Luke’s Machinery and in between the bookends of his career he was one of the founders and builders of Dominion Armature, and DAW Steel. No problem was ever too big or small, and no question not worthy of a thoughtful and encouraging answer. His drive to create, build and repair never wained including his time at Riverview where he was always asking for a small tool kit to be prepared to make a quick repair. Andy’s passion was the cottage he built on Pinawa Bay where he could be found working tirelessly on his many projects or helping a neighbour. Andy and Shirley cherished the many friendships made there over the past 50 years, Andy was a generous, caring, and patient man, always willing to lend a helping hand with family and friends. Even as it became increasingly difficult for him to do so later in life, he could still make a phone call and offer assistance.
The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the staff of Riverview CD3 for your care and compassion, you are all very special people.
Celebration of Life will be held Friday, April 28, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. at Green Acres Funeral Home, Hwy. #1 East at Navin Road, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Interment will take place at a private family event on a future date.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that a donation be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation if so desired.

Dear Aunty Shirley and Cousins.... Chuck and I are so very sorry to hear of Uncle Andy's passing. I have very fond memories of growing up in Winnipeg and visiting with you all (albeit it was many years ago!!). Uncle Andy was a lovely man and a great brother to my mother, Annette. Sincere sympathy to you all. Take care. Adele - Posted by: Adele (Schimnowski) Nichols (Andy Lamothe was my uncle.) on: Apr 24, 2023
I worked at Luke's Machinery and Andy was the best boss that I have ever had. He certainly was a mentor and I learned a lot from him. His easy going style and sense of humor made the workplace enjoyable. I have many fond memories of that time. Rest in Peace Andy. - Posted by: Roger Birdsell (Co-worker) on: Apr 23, 2023
