Robert C. Courtemanche
April 25, 1950 ~ June 21, 2022
Decorated Veteran, Purple Heart Recipient, husband father, brother, uncle, Papa; Robert C. Courtemanche- favorably known as Bob- his love for life didn’t end with sadness, but ended with freedom. Born April 25, 1950 in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, Bob’s life ended on this Earth and began in Heaven June 21, 2022 in true Bob fashion.
Our Darlin’ is survived by his wife, Jennie Courtemanche, three daughters, son, and six grandchildren: Nicholina Courtemanche-Pierce, Shanna Courtemanche-Palmer, Bobbi Courtemanche, Codey Courtemanche, Emma, Codey, Wyatt, Boston, Cambelle, and Brinley. Bob is also survived by his sons-in-law: his “buddy”, Michael Pierce, and Patrick Palmer, sister, Dottie Goodwin and loving niece, Lori Beier.
Bob was a selfless and honorable man who chose to serve his country in Vietnam 1970 through 1971.
He was as sharp as a tack- a true definition of a man who worked so incredibly hard, day in & day out to provide for his family, shared his knowledge, stubbornness, humor, always found a way to slip a good joke in with everyone he crossed paths with.
He loved his Saints, he loved his beer, he loved his vinyls, and most importantly, he loved his family. Bob truly lived a life worth cheering about.
Bob was confident in his relationship with the Lord and unashamedly devoted his life to our Father and because of that, we know he RAN through the gates of Heaven to join others he loved, without the struggle to breathe or walk. He is at peace.
For whoever would like to join, Bob’s friends and family will be holding services on July 5, 2022 at 8:30 a.m. a Mass at St. Pius, 625 E Haycraft Ave, Coeur d'Alene, ID 83815
He will be laid to rest on July 5th at 11:15 a.m. at Washington State Veteran Cemetery, 21702 W Espanola Rd, Medical Lake, WA 99022
