Lafleur died ten years after battling atypical Parkinson’s disease. His wife Shelley Lafleur said on Facebook on Thursday, highlighting some of his roles in his career, including “sand”. Babe Ruth in the movie, the second is the third part of the Tooth Fairy and “Santa Claus” movie, and the chicken Gandir in “Dreamland”.
“He was a generous and selfless person, and continued into his performances,” Shelley Lafleur wrote, “but more importantly, he is for family and friends.”
“I am very fortunate to have a 43-year relationship with someone who cherishes me and I admire,” Shelley Lafleur said. “Art is more important than life, and it means the whole world to us.”
