Obituary of Remi Joseph Girard

Passed away peacefully on January 16, 2023 at the age of 87 surrounded by his loving family.

Brother of Cecile Jubenville (Bev), Ernest Girard (Martha) and predeceased by 8 other siblings. He will also be missed by many nieces and nephews and friends. We will all miss his funny sense of humour and his endless blonde jokes. Remi retired as a truck driver from Chrysler after many years of service. While wintering in Florida, Remi found his love of woodworking where he hand-crafted many items such as bowls, pens, lamps, cutting boards, and many more personalized items, over the years. The family would like to thank the staff and volunteers of Erie Shores Hospice for all their dedicated care and compassion. At Remi’s request, cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to Windsor Chapel (Banwell Chapel), 519-253-7234. A Funeral Mass will take place on Friday, January 20, 2023, at Parish of Atonement (2940 Forest Glade Dr.) at 11:00 am.
