  • So very sorry to hear of Denis' passing...I knew him from my days as a Supervisor for the girls residence on Stradbrook Avenue at Project Neecheewam in the early seventies and eighties. He was one of the hardest working counselor at the time and no doubt he continued being so . I loved his sense of humor and laughter ....he will be greatly missed. Our condolences from Silvana and Ray Auld,Niagara on the Lake Ontario. - Posted by: Silvana Auld (Past work ) on: Mar 12, 2016

  • French when I first heard of you it was in whispers and a kind of legend is born. We came knocking on your door when you lived across from the old City Centre hotel looking for our cousin Val Thomas. When we finally did meet you you made more than just an impression. The way one lives their life says a lot about them. When an old school guy from the north end can turn things around and make something of his life is an example to us all. You didn't duck, dodge and dance around the heart of the matter when you said something you cared about you meant it. And you cared enough about me to let me know in no uncertain terms. More people can take a lesson from.living a good way of life. In the spirit brother Maskwa Kimopohotet Ozzie Thomas - Posted by: Ozzie Thomas (Brother ) on: Mar 11, 2016

  • French, Frenchie, Denis, or as my husband called him, "my Bud". Jerry and I met French, and Candy, 14 years ago when they moved into their country home just south of our farm. An intense friendship developed, many, many fun, happy times spent together, including packing many lunchs/beverages for "road trips". French was a caring soul, loved our three daughters, took pride in what they did. As a friend, well, he had so many special traits, too many to mention. In August of 2014 my family lost Jerry to cancer. Prior to his passing, Frenchie made a special trip to spend time with Jerry. This meant so much to Jerry. I can't imagine not saying "French and Candy". After being apart for a few years, Frenchie and Jerry are reunited and playing crib once again. RIP French, you will be missed by so many. - Posted by: Karen MacLean (Friend and Neighbour) on: Mar 10, 2016

  • French and I only bumped into each other occasionally over the past few years but I often talked about him with the many now full grown men with families that appreciated his influence on their lives while in his care as youth theY learned lots of practical skills as well as emotional ones. it's funny but some still remember losing 50 cents from their allowance and now agree the reason was right. denis you had a positive impact on this world - Posted by: jeff phillips (friend) on: Mar 09, 2016
