Norman B. “Corky” Lapointe, 72, on June 23, 2024

Norman B. “Corky” Lapointe, aged 72, of Sandcastle Estates in South Attleboro, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 23, 2024, at the Country Gardens Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Swansea, MA. Born on December 17, 1951, in Providence, RI, he was the beloved son of the late Norman A. “Lefty” Lapointe and Bernadette T. (Bessette) Lapointe.

Corky spent his early years in Plainville and was a proud alumnus of Sacred Heart School in North Attleboro, graduating in 1966, and Bishop Feehan High School in Attleboro, where he graduated in 1970. He pursued a career as a self-employed finishing carpenter, earning respect and admiration for his skill and dedication.

A man of deep Catholic faith, Corky was a long-time communicant of Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus Church in South Attleboro and previously of Sacred Heart Church in North Attleboro. His faith was a cornerstone of his life, guiding his actions and inspiring his kindness towards others.

Corky was known for his unwavering generosity, always willing to lend a hand or offer support to those in need. He often completed various projects for family and friends, never hesitating to go above and beyond. His favorite moments were those spent with his cherished family, especially his nieces and nephews, who held a special place in his heart.

In addition to his devotion to his family and faith, Corky was an avid supporter of New England and Boston sports teams. He enjoyed golfing and had a penchant for playing the lottery, finding joy in these simple pleasures.

Corky is survived by his dear siblings: Christine T. Maxwell and her husband Bruce of South Attleboro; Robert A. Lapointe and his wife Kathy of North Attleboro; Ronald E. Lapointe and his wife Lynn of Bluffton, SC; and Richard E. Lapointe of South Attleboro. He also leaves behind numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews who will forever cherish his memory.

Corky’s funeral will be held on Friday, June 28, 2024, beginning with a visitation period from 9:00 to 10:30 AM in the Sperry & McHoul Funeral Home, located at 15 Grove Street, North Attleboro. Following this, a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in his honor by Reverend Gregory Quenneville at 11:00 AM in Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus Church, 18 Baltic Street, South Attleboro. Relatives and friends are most kindly invited to attend. Corky will be laid to rest privately at Saint Mary’s Cemetery in Attleboro Falls at a later date.

Donations can also be made to the American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 6704, Hagerstown, MD 21741, or online at donate.cancer.org.

  • What to say about my uncle. I will miss you more than you know. I will miss our trips to the grocery store on Saturdays, going to play your lottery. Over this past year you and I became alot closer and I will cherish those memories . I will miss your laugh, you arguing because you were always right in any conversation, most of all your advice and our talks. This last year was hard for you and I know with all my heart that you are at peace with no more pain. Enjoy your ice coffee and your winning lottery ticket up there in heaven. Give Mem, Pep, and my Daniel the biggest hugs and kisses for me. Love you.

  • Corky was alot of fun to be with. He was always smiling and always made me feel good when I was around him. I will miss him very much. What a wonderful cousin.

  • Chris, Bob, Ronnie and Richard,
    My sympathy and condolences on the passing of your brother. I have such fond memories of the Lapointe Thanksgiving dinners and when we were even younger for picnics at Meme’s backyard. Corky was always a fun part of the family get together. And since Corky was my mother’s godson there was always a special place in her heart for him. He will be missed. May he rest in
    peace with Uncle Norman and Aunt Bernadette. Even though I cannot make the services today, he is in my thoughts and prayers. 🙏 Cousin, Marianne

  • I love you Uncle Corky you will truly be missed. Always remember all the memories working with you. You are a great man and I know you’re shining down on us keeping us all safe. Rest easy. Until we meet up again. I love you

  • To the LaPointe family, Eric and I are so sorry for your loss. Our condolences to all🙏🏻🙏🏻

  • My Uncle was a simple man who loves his work friends and family. He was completely comfortable with who he was…sloppy with his food and god knows what all over his clothes and blankets. The most lovable and giving man you would ever come across. I will remember our classes of trying to teach him to text. They would always end in my laughing and him being angry and frustrated. Although we list a great man, he had a hard 6 months and I take comfort that he is now pain free and at peace.

  • Corky and I are cousins. He is 18 years older than me. He always kind and generous to me, and everyone around him. I love and will miss him. I have no doubt he is at peace with his loved ones. God knows, he earned it. He was one of the good ones.

  • Chris, Ronnie, Bobby & Richard,
    Our deepest sympathies to you all. We will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers and may your memories keep your hearts light and know he will always be with you.

    Much love,

    Debbie & Larry
