On May 18th, Captain Michael V Rochette passed away at the age of 49. He was a sailor for 34 years. In those years he worked for Canada Steamship Lines aboard the Louis R. Desmarais, Nanticoke as well as many of their ships. He worked as Captain aboard the M.V. Pelee Islander for 10 years. He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Judy Rochette, his two daughters, Summer
Rochette and Vanessa Reed, and his mother, Lucia Rochette. A memorial is to take place Wednesday May 25th, 2005 at 10:30 a.m.

Captain Rochette was well known for his good humor and kindness, and was respected by skippers and crews from both sides of the river (Detroit river that is). The lakes will miss him.
