For Immediate Release
Ohiarí:ha/June 15, 2021
It is with deep sadness that the Mohawk Council announces the sudden passing of Kana:takon District Chief Darryl “Kermit” Lazore. We offer our condolences to his family, his district and the community and we share the sorrow of this great loss.
Chief Lazore wore his heart on his sleeve and his love and respect for the people of Akwesasne was widely known and felt. He was nearing the end of his second elected term in office, having served the community for six years with a passion for issues in housing and public safety.
In the office, Chief Lazore was known for his humor, kindness and friendliness; Council and staff will surely miss him.
We thank those who have offered their condolences and we ask that thoughts continue to be with his family and children.
