DENIS A. DELORME
July 13, 1941 November 9, 2022
Sadly, and in peace, I announce the passing of Denis Delorme on Wednesday, November 9, 2022, at 81 years of age, after 50 plus years of battling Type 1 Diabetes and finally succumbing to its daily grip.
He will be greatly missed by his son Mike (Yvonne), sisters Lorraine, Louise (Gerry), grandchildren Craig (Cassie), Kirk (Stephanie), great-grandsons Ryan and Max, as well as numerous nieces and nephews, and great friends. He was predeceased by his brother Emile (Louise) and brother-in-law Bruno.
DAD YOU WILL BE SADLY MISSED AND REMEMBERED ALWAYS!!
Special thanks to all the amazing staff at St. Boniface Hospital (a special nod to "Dr. Al) for their kind and compassionate care during this difficult time.
In accordance with Denis' wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held with family at a future date.
Dad's favourite quote: "IF THEY CAN'T SEE ME WHEN I AM ALIVE, THEY SURE AS HECK DON'T NEED TO SEE ME WHEN I'M DEAD" (thanks Warren).
"I will see you again dad...
but not yet...not yet"
Should you desire, please consider a donation to Diabetes Canada or the charity of your choice.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
Mike your Dad was a dear friend and one of the most important assistants on my coaching and management teams during my twenty some years of coaching hockey. To be honest I first asked for his help when I was first coaching you and you were playing in goal. He used to stand behind your net and shout instructions to you. I thought it was distracting you so I asked him to be our trainer to get him in the box instead of behind the net. Well it was probably bad logic but it turned out to be one of my best moves. He was so dedicated and reliable for anything I asked him to do. He was in charge of all the equipment and sweaters and very importantly handled all the team finances. He was a big part of the success we had on the ice. Most importantly he became a great friend to both me and fellow coach Rolly Fortin. We were just planning on having another one of our lunches when we heard the sad news. Rolly and I extend our deepest sympathies to you and all your family. He will be missed but never forgotten.--Paul Gentes - Posted by: paul gentes (Friend and Coaching Partner.) on: Nov 27, 2022

Mike - please know your Dad brought joy and peace to so many patients, family and staff at St.B. over many years of devoted volunteerism with his beautiful, gentle dog. Sincere condolences to you and your family. A good man (and dear dog) who will be missed and remembered. - Posted by: Candace (St. B. staff ) on: Nov 21, 2022
I remember Denis when he volunteered at St Boniface Hospital with his beautiful dog. He would always stop and chat with you and was very friendly. His dog always stayed close by Denis, he was never on a leash and always well behaved. It was a very sad day when his beautiful dog went over to the rainbow bridge. I know Denis is with his beloved dog and resting in peace now. Condolences to his family ❤️ - Posted by: Diane (Previous employee at St Boniface Hospital) on: Nov 19, 2022
