DENIS REMILLARD
12 Août 1953 - 11 Janvier 2022

"With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy." - Desiderata


Denis a terminé son histoire chez lui, avec sa famille qui l'entourait de leur amour.
Denis laisse sa femme Lise Mulaire et ses trois enfants Janelle (Dominic), Luc (Kennedy), Colin, et sa petite-fille, bébé Léa.
Denis passed away after almost a year long battle with leukemia (AML). Born in St. Boniface to Gérard and Denise (Kenny) Rémillard (both deceased), Denis leaves behind his three brothers, Paul (Louise), Marc (Aline), and Jean (Alida), his mother-in law Cécile Mulaire, his Mulaire in-laws, Madeleine (Raymond), Rachel (Aurèle), Raymond (Gabrielle), Mariette (Brian), Micheline, and Alain. He leaves many nieces and nephews who were all very special to him, as well as many friends, business connections, and old employees.
Denis a vécu une jeunesse heureuse et bien remplie. Ses années au Petit Séminaire et au Camp Notre Dame étaient gratifiantes et mémorables. Il a rencontré beaucoup de bons amis et a laissé son empreinte sur cette communauté.
Denis spent a few leap years in Northern Manitoba. He was an assistant for University of Manitoba grad students doing research on caribou herds. He has told us many great tales of his time spent in the woods, which strengthened his love for nature and the outdoors. Those were some of the greatest years of his life.
In the mid 1970s, Denis landed up in the small town of St. Léon, MB, working odd jobs and trying to find himself. One morning, he woke up and decided: "I'm going to build a greenhouse!", and just like that, his future started to take shape. The horticultural project was first aimed at teaching skills, responsibility, and community involvement to the town's youth. His future life partner Lise joined the project in 1982, and they gradually grew the garden youth project into a 50-acre vegetable and flower farm.
In 1990, many difficulties pushed the couple to move to Winnipeg where they established the market Jardins St-Léon Gardens in Old St. Vital. Through many challenges and despite the many hurdles to properly establish the market, St-Léon Gardens became what it is today.
Malgré la nature saisonnière de l'entreprise, Denis a toujours consacré du temps aux aventures en nature. A chaque automne ou hiver, il organisait des expéditions en canoë ou de "winter camping" avec ses enfants et amis. Il a partagé son goût pour l'exploration avec plusieurs jeunes de façon mémorable.
Denis appréciait beaucoup les grandes rencontres de famille, la bonne nourriture et les discussions animées autour de la table. Plusieurs décisions de business ont été prises autour d'un repas en compagnie de sa famille et de son cher neveu Daniel. Il était toujours ouvert d'esprit et intéressé d'entendre différentes opinions et nouvelles.
Denis a pris sa "retraite" en retournant à ses racines, au jardinage, en créant un jardin urbain. Il a toujours aimé son travail et y trouvait énormément de satisfaction. Une main sur le coeur et l'autre dans la terre.
Throughout his business career and dealings, Denis strived to include the young and those living with challenges by giving them work and extra life opportunities. He was involved in committees such as Habitat Chez Soi and volunteered at Agape Table. Most importantly, many neighbourhood kids will remember the great big backyard skating rink that Denis loved to upkeep and continuously improve. In the last year, the next generation has assured the continuity of the neighbourhood rink, making Denis so very proud.
The family would like to thank and acknowledge the wonderful work and attention that Denis received at CancerCare at Health Sciences Centre, especially Dr. Craig Speziali, Lisa King and all the wonderful staff and nurses who took such great care of him during his many visits. We would also like to thank the Palliative Care team who were there for us during his last days.
Denis was a strong believer in dying on his own terms. He chose to die with medical assistance and applauded the service provided by MAiD. We are forever grateful for the peaceful passing he was able to choose.
A Celebration of Life will be held privately at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please send your donations to RAY (Resource Assistance for Youth), an organization close to Denis' heart, that provides support to youth at risk.
In true Denis fashion, we are offering some very simple parting words that he lived by in his everyday life: "Go make the world a better place!"

  • I first met Denis when we were both members of the Board of Residents of Old St Boniface, he was very patient with my french, and after we had both left the board, it was always a pleasure to meet him at Jardin St Leon, and see the growth of the family and business. I am sure he will be missed in many ways and places and offer my sympathies to his family and friends. - Posted by: Margrét Thomas (acquaintence) on: Feb 17, 2022

  • Nos condoléances Lise, Janelle, Luc, Colin et bébé Léa. Avec Denis, vous avez établi et maintenu l'esprit convivial qui rend notre petite rue tellement accueillante et amusante.

Tu nous manqueras! - Posted by: La famille François (Voisins et amis) on: Feb 14, 2022

  • Just wanted to send my condolences, your father was such a friendly, kind, gracious man. I was always enjoyed seeing him busying himself and greeting customers. I'll never forget the day I was shopping 6 months pregnant, when your father told me to pick any hanging basket that I wanted. I was so shocked and asked him why, he told me it was to celebrate the child I was going to have and the mother I was going to be. I left so full of peace and joy. Sending hugs to you all. - Posted by: Jennifer Goreski (Customer) on: Feb 14, 2022

Je connais ta douleur ayant perdu Monique le 31 mars 2021. De vous avoir côtoyé que pour quelque brèves années il y a longtemps a enrichi notre vie.

  • Mes plus sincères condoléances à la famille Mulaire - Remillard. J'ai toujours adoré faire mes épiceries aux Jardins - les légumes et fruits locaux et frais ("real carrots!" - "real strawberries!"). M. Remillard a fait honneur à Winnipeg en nous donnant ce lieu de rassemblement. His life is an inspiration to us all. - Posted by: Marianne Rivoalen ((cliente - Jardins St. Léon)) on: Jan 23, 2022

  • Mes plus sinçères sympathies à la belle grande famille de Denis qui est parti beaucoup trop jeune ... je n'ai que de bons souvenirs de moments passés ensemble soit durant nos jeux d'adolescents à St-Norbert, au scoutisme, au Petit Séminaire et plus tard nos rencontres au magasin Jardin St-Léon à St-Boniface.... c'était toujours " Denis " débordant d'énergie , suivant son propre chemin ,jamais peur de foncer sans oublier de s'arrêter pour saluer et "jaser" avec ses innombrables ami(e)s et connaissances ... j'ai une grande admiration pour l'homme qu'ìl est devenu ,tout ce qu'il a accomplie dans si peu de temps,et son influence positive qui a transformée tant de vies et de communautés .. Denis mérite certainement touts les hommages qui lui sont accordés...Denis nous manquera beaucoup !!!!! - Posted by: Charles Roy (ami) on: Jan 22, 2022

  • Our most sincere sympathies to Lise and family. Every year Lise and Denis would set up there "flower, plant stand" in front of our store in St.Claude such wonderful memories, he was such a wonderful man to chat with. RIP Denis. - Posted by: Dawn and Gilles Chappellaz (Friend) on: Jan 22, 2022

  • J’ai eu la chance de rencontrer Denis au Camp Notre-Dame. Il était une personne extraordinaire. Denis avait le don de faire sentir à tous que chaque rencontre était un énorme plaisir pour lui. Peu importe comment occupé il était, Denis avait toujours le temps pour une petite jasette. C’est une grosse perte. - Posted by: Paulette Desaulniers (Cliente et amie) on: Jan 21, 2022

  • À Lise, Janelle, Luc et Colin. J'ai toujours apprécié l'accueil chaleureux et la bonne humeur de Denis lors de mes visites au marché et lors de rencontres impromtues. J'appréciais ses farces, son aide et ses bons conseils. Il laisse un grand vide derrière lui. Toutes mes condoléances. - Posted by: Louise Simard (Connaissance et cliente) on: Jan 19, 2022

  • Lise et famille, on vous offre nos plus sincères condoléances pour le décès de Dénis. Un trait que l’on se souvient aussi est que Dénis était “fair play”. Il organisait des joutes de hockey avec les jeunes et “que tu sois bon, moins bon, gros ou petit”, chaque jeune avait le même temps sur la glace! Quel bel hommage de cette nécrologie! C’est le Denis que l’on a connu avec son sourire contagieux et sa joie de vivre. Vous êtes tous dans nos prières et pensées. - Posted by: Robert et Irma Grenier (Amis) on: Jan 19, 2022

  • My condolences go out to the Remillard family as my thoughts go back to St. Norbert, L’Abbe Hebert and Katimavik. Denis devoted most of his career as altar boy to making the rest of us laugh at the least opportune times, preferably when L’Abbe Hebert was conducting. Those 6:00am services were far more entertaining when paired with Denis. Denis was a good scout in every way, the very definition of “debrouillard”. Il etait toujours pret. Many, many fond memories of building our suspension bridge at Katimavik, winter camping, blowing the competition away at the Vancouver Jamboree... and Denis inevitably right in the thick of things “Mom chere scoute-maistre excusez moi He n’irais pas au camp, pourquoi? A Dieu, je meurs, et je vous dis : Rassemblement au Paradis ! Pleurez pas, faut pas vous en faire ! Et je vous fais en passant Le grand salut de l’Aspirant.” Adieu Denis - Posted by: Marc Ouimet (Fellow altar boy and Boy Scout ) on: Jan 19, 2022

  • Sincères condoléances à toute la famille. Nous nous souviendrons de lui comme un homme au mille talents. Bon courage Lise! On pense à vous tous! - Posted by: Julie Germain & Stuart Petersen (Client/ Ami) on: Jan 17, 2022

  • Chère Lise, J'aimerais exprimer mes plus sincères condoléances à toi et ta famille. C'est une énorme perte. Bon courage dans les mois à venir. Richard Goulet - Posted by: Richard Goulet (Ami) on: Jan 17, 2022

  • Mes sincères condoléances à toi Lise et à toute la famille. Quelle perte pour vous tous. Que vous puissiez être réconfortés dans votre deuil Sincèrement, Rachel Bohémier - Posted by: Rachel Bohémier Fraser (Friend) on: Jan 17, 2022

  • Sincères condoléances à toute la famille. Denis était un homme tellement gentil, généreux et aimable. - Posted by: Julie Turenne-Maynard (Friend) on: Jan 17, 2022

  • Sincères condoléance, J'ai connu Denis dans les années `70 au Camp Notre-Dame où il était un excellent moniteur, comme responsable du projet Resto 12 pour restaurer le pierre tombale de Louis Riel, et aussi comme ami. C'était un homme charmant qui aimait rire et faire rire, En lisant le brillant hommage, je constate qu'il avait toujours cette joie de vivre et un optimiste sans borne. Un "vrai" rayon de soleil. Bon courage à toute la famille. Jeanne de Québec - Posted by: Jeanne Grégoire (amie) on: Jan 17, 2022

  • Nos sympathies à toi Lise. Ca fait longtemps qu'on connait Denis. Au petit séminaire j'ai vécu de très bon moment avec lui. Il fut une inspiration pour moi et beaucoup d'autres jeunes. Nos allons prier pour vous tous. Laurent . - Posted by: Renelle et Laurent Bohemier (Ami) on: Jan 17, 2022

  • Lise & Family, So sorry to hear of Denis' passing. Our father, Harry Rubinfeld, owned Stella Produce & he & Denis were very fond of each other. Whenever I stopped by St. Leon's, I always asked if Denis were there & he always greeted me with a big smile. He will leave a big hole in the community & will be greatly missed. - Posted by: Renee Billauer (Rubinfeld) (acquaintance) on: Jan 17, 2022

  • We are so sorry for your loss. Denis was a good man. - Posted by: Gerry Adolphe (cousin) on: Jan 17, 2022

  • My first job was with Denis and Lise at the greenhouse in St Leon. I learnt so much from Denis and always kept in touch with Denis et Lise. He was a wonderful hockey coach to me. I’ll always remember his comment he told me the first time I was goalie (was goalie for 6 yrs). I don’t care what you do but stop that dam puck!!! My sincere sympathy Lise and families. Always in my prayers and mind forever. Take care during this difficult time!!! Daniel Geirnaert - Posted by: Dan Geirnaert (Close friend ) on: Jan 16, 2022

  • Dénis gave Winnipeg a beautiful gift and legacy. The gift of local produce, local food, big smiles, fantastic customer service, great music, and a new way to do business. Over the years Denis’ efforts to support and mentor local youth grew in leaps and bounds. He always had time for a conversation and a ´salut too’. Thank you Denis - your customers will miss you. - Posted by: Jo-Ann Finney (St Leon customer) on: Jan 16, 2022

  • I've known Denis since the early 1970's, having been a very good friend of Denis's younger brother since that time. I've always loved Denis. Even if I was younger than him (only a few years, but at the age of 16 or so, a few years makes a big difference), Denis was always very friendly, respectful and always made me feel really good. As his younger brother's buddy, I wasn't only tolerated... I was celebrated! At least I felt that way, which is the most important thing. Apparently, that was a good reflection of Denis's nature and how he lived his life for the many decades to come... No wonder he was so well loved by all! Whenever my wife and I would go shop at Jardins St. Leon, I'd always hope to see him there, just because I wanted to be able to say hi to him and be in his loving presence for even a short while... Sending lots of love to the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Denis, we love you! Robert Champagne - Posted by: Robert & Suzanne Champagne (Friends) on: Jan 16, 2022

  • Un homme bien admiré de tous. Je désire offrir mes condoléances à Lise, à leurs enfants, et aux familles Rémillard et Mulaire. Qu'il repose en paix. - Posted by: Normand Dupasquier (Connaissance) on: Jan 16, 2022

  • Memories of warm days and an abundance, acres of tomatoes, my mom and I on our annual "pilgrimage" to get pick-your-own tomatoes. It was a service to people like us who canned and found the produce at Jardins St Leon. We didn't know how he and Lise were, at the same time, helping youth projects. Denis and Lise dreamed big, and now, we've finally realized, they were/are visionaries for a world where local gardens are essential. Our deepest sympathies to Denis's family. Too young to leave this Earth which he knew as a brother. - Posted by: Ilene Maurice (Customers of St Leon Gardens) on: Jan 16, 2022

  • My condolences to the family, Denis was a special person who always had a smile to share with our guests and no job was ever too big or too small when it came to volunteering at Agape Table. He was a guest and staff favorite when he came by. - Posted by: Dave Feniuk (Friend ) on: Jan 15, 2022

  • Denis prenait toujours le temps pour dire bonjour et jaser avec un grand sourire. Nous voulous prendre le temps pour offrir nos sinceres condoleances at la famille. - Posted by: Eugene et Lynn Fillion (Ami) on: Jan 15, 2022

  • Re: Denis, Denis, tu a été un très bon ami. Depuis 1966, nous nous sommes connus. Comme petit garçons, tu avons eu des bons moments et des moments u l’on se tombais sur les nerfs. Mais, c’est toujours l’amitié qui a gagné. Mon regrêt est qu’on s’est pas voisinné plus souvent au courant de notre vie. Lise et enfants, Mariette, Nos très sincères sympathies.

  • Chère Lise et toute la famille, J’ai eu la chance de connaître Denis au Camp Notre-Dame lorsque j’étais monitrice et lui, sauveteur. Chaque fois qu’on avait l’occasion de se voir, (surtout aux Jardins St-Léon) et même s’il était très occupé, il prenait le temps de jaser et avait le don de me faire rire. Je me souviendrai toujours de sa gentillesse et de ses yeux pétillants et taquins. Toutes mes pensées sont avec vous et je vous offre mes plus sincères condoléances. - Posted by: Suzanne Nolette (amie) on: Jan 15, 2022

  • The world has lost a kind and generous soul. Denis was an amazing individual--a lifelong learner, happy to share his expertise and knowledge with anyone who was willing to learn. He taught me so much about plants and gardening, but more importantly, he demonstrated on a daily basis how a positive attitude, hard work and small acts of kindness could make the world a better place…one tomato plant at a time. I’ll miss his million dollar smile. Heartfelt condolences to Lise, Janelle, Luc, Colin and Denis’ extended family. - Posted by: Valerie McPherson (Friend) on: Jan 15, 2022

  • It looks like God looked down and said to himself "I need a friend to stand by the fence and talk about my flowers and how they represent the beauty of youth" so he called Denis. Joyce and I will miss your shining face and laughter at our next trip to St. Leon's. Travel safe/travel well and keep Gods garden supplied with fresh veggies and flowers. Don and Joyce Sobering - Posted by: DON sobering (friend) on: Jan 15, 2022

  • Les souvenirs que nous retenons de Denis sont ceux d’un homme jovial, chaleureux et de grand coeur. Nous sommes profondément attristés par le décès d’un homme exemplaire toujours impliqué au sein de la communauté francophone. Nous étions parmi ses premiers clients lorsqu’il a lancé son entreprise. À ce temps-là,on avait acheté 40 livres de tomates et une poche de petits cocombres pour nos premiers cannages. Nous offrons nos plus sincères condoléances à Lise, Janelle, Luc et Colin. Denis a su nous inspirés et nous lègue le même défi. - Posted by: Linda et Gilbert Perrin (Amis (parents de Miguel et Christine Perrin)) on: Jan 15, 2022
