Obituary of Michael James "M.J." Denault

(Retired Gillies Bros. Lumber Mill, Braeside)

 

With heavy hearts we announce that our beloved M.J. passed away peacefully at Fairview Manor, Almonte while surrounded by loved ones on Saturday afternoon, March 30, 2019. He was 80. Beloved husband for over 59 years of Gail (nee Rose). Dearly loved and proud “Pops” of Wade (Debbie Dryden) and Chris, both of Arnprior and Carl (Tracey) of Braeside. Predeceased by an infant son in 1964. Cherished “Poppa” of Jack and Carley. Dear brother of Joan Durocher (Diona) of Watson Lake, Yukon. M.J. is survived by many nieces and nephews. Son of the late Denis and Kate (nee Lavoie) Denault. M.J. was predeceased by 4 brothers: Edmond, Horace, Lyola and Wilfrid as well as 2 sisters: Viola and Florence. Born and raised on the Black River near Waltham, Quebec, M.J. eventually found his way to beautiful Braeside where he and Gail raised their family while M.J. spent his career as a debarker operator at Gillies Brothers Sawmill. Upon retirement, M.J. could always be found building or repairing something or other. His pleasant and kind demeanor will long be remembered by the many who called him friend. He will be missed. M.J.’s final care has been entrusted to the Pilon Family Funeral Home and Chapel Ltd., 50 John Street North, Arnprior where visitation will be held on Thursday evening, April 4th from 7 to 9 p.m. and again on Friday morning, April 5th from 10 to 10:45 a.m. A Funeral Service will follow in the Pilon Family Chapel at 11 o’clock.
