It is with regret that we announce the passing of Herb LaFontaine, long-time resident of Vernon and area. After 14 years of medical victories, the demon cancer took the final round as he passed peacefully at Vernon Hospice House. He was a 35-year educator in Vernon & Lumby including Principal at both Charles Bloom Secondary and Vernon Secondary Schools and seved at the Board Office as well. He was predeceased by his first wife, Ruby and his second wife, Jean and is survived by Allan (Deborah), Lori (Jim), Lee (Penny, Gabriel) and Jodi (Brent), his brother Roger and a very large extended family.

He will be missed by many but fish everywhere may feel safer today.
