A Beauharnois family involved in the regatta world in the 1970s and 1980s recently lost another of its members.

Daniel Rajotte, who drove the 5 liter Pink Panther hydroplane in the old class 280 class in the early ’80s, died on Wednesday, May 16 at the age of 62. His brother, the late Yvon Rajotte, drove the “UPA Special” to several victories in the 3 Liter class in the 70s.


The deceased is survived by his son Samuel, (Virginie), his sister Jocelyne, (René); his nephews and nieces as well as other relatives and friends. His family will accept condolences on Saturday, June 9, from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm at the Stéphane Gendron Funeral Complex Chapel at 110 Saint-Laurent Street in Beauharnois.

A liturgy will follow and his friends will lead him in a procession to the Beauharnois Cemetery following the ceremony. Any expression of sympathy can be expressed in the form of a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Diabète-Québec.
