Bill Lacombe Death – Cause of Death: Church Community mourns the sudden death of beloved Deacon.

Deacon Lacombe is remembered as a fine Man of God, beloved husband, father, friend, and educator.

On Tuesday, January 11, 2022, St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Beaufort, SC announced Deacon Lacombe’s death via a social media post, following his involvement in a automobile accident on his way to work. Unfortunately, he died from injuries sustained in the crash.

A statement made by Father Andrew at St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Beaufort, SC read;

“Dear Parish Family,

“Words cannot express our sorrow to share the passing of one of our beloved deacons, Deacon Bill Lacombe, who died suddenly this morning in an automobile collision as he drove to work. He has served joyfully at Saint Peter’s since his ordination in 2002. He is a loving husband and a father of five children.”

“In Deacon Lacombe’s time here, he has worked as a teacher at Saint Peter’s Catholic School, its principal, and our Director of Religious Education. Over the last year and a half, parishioners would normally see him serving at the 9am Mass, proclaiming the Gospel with joy and a booming voice. I loved serving with Deacon and was always moved by his kindness and deep love for the Lord. He had a servant’s heart, always ready to serve however he could, and his service most recently took the form of teaching fifth grade at Ridgeland Elementary School.”

“The funeral will be held here at Saint Peter’s next week. We will share details as soon as we know them.”
