Long Time AICO Sales Professional and Industry Veteran Lawrence Pascal Passes Away

Furniture World News



Long time AICO Sales Professional and industry veteran Lawrence Pascal recently passed away after a courageous 16 year battle with prostate cancer.

As a true sales professional, Lawrence earned the respect and admiration from everyone at AICO as well as the entire home furnishings industry. He was the consummate team player, and a dedicated ambassador to Michael Amini and a special member of the AICO family.  

Lawrence began his career in the family business and became the buyer for Pascals Furniture with locations throughout Canada.  When Pascals closed operations, he began a long career as a Sales Professional first with Leather Trend and then with AICO for over 26 years.  

Lawrence worked through his medical challenges attending markets and servicing his customers, even during his final days.  Next to family, his passion was the furniture industry, and his relationships throughout Canada and the United States were the envy of any sales professional.

Son of the late Hyman and Esther Pascal of Montreal, grandson of Pascals Hardware and Furniture founder Jacob Pascal, and brother of the late Sheila Glazer, he is survived by his wife Danielle Thomas, his sister Mimi Kerman, his children David, Beth, Michelle, Haley and Matthew and his grandchildren, Rheanne, Jaimie, Ethan, Amber, Chloe, Zachary and Alexander.

Lawrence will always be remembered for the even-tempered, kind and generous soul he was, who always put family first. To quote a friend who wrote last week, "I don't think there is a person in this world who knows him and doesn't love him."
