Denis Joseph Bernard Fillion, M.Sc,
Born July 11, 1939 in Regina SK, passed away at 10:14 PM on April 25, 2012 in the home he loved. Denis was a teacher, a father, a biologist, an artist, and a good friend to many people. Denis’ home on Caledonia Avenue is as unique as he was – his stone wall (complete with whale fin), Free Tibet monument, and annual Sponge Bob nativity scene are a testament to his unique creativity. Denis lived absolutely true to himself and the world will be a little more grey and average without him. He was loved and will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and children William, Katie, and Danielle. A garden party in Denis’ memory will be held Saturday, July 14th from 3-8 PM at Denis’ home on Caledonia. Friends and family are welcome to drop by to share a memory and enjoy some of Denis’ favourite cookies and squares. Thank you to Gail Fraser from VIHA, to all of the nurses on the palliative response team, and to our dear friend Stephanie, who made it her mission to bring a bit of light and happiness into every one of Denis’ days while he was ill.
