Matthew “Matt” Robert Lafferty

Jan.25, 1946 to Apr. 15, 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Matthew “Matt” Robert Lafferty (Jan.25, 1946 to Apr. 15, 2023). He was a loving father, grandfather and husband, as well as a reliable and supportive friend.

A huge thank you to the Whitehorse Hospital staff and First Nations Health, especially his niece Tracy, for taking such good care of him.

Cathy, Noria, Onur and Eli will miss him dearly.
A service will be announced at a later date.

Oh my gosh, he had a kind heart, somedays, when we had our four kids and I would go shopping and needed a ride home, he would kindly offer me a ride. I did not know he was from NWT. <3
