Denis Guy Bouillet passed away peacefully with his family by his side on April 16, 2021 at the age of 87 years.
Denis will be dearly missed by his loving wife of 59 years, Barbara; children Allan (Wendy) and their children; Jennifer, Rebecca, Amanda of Grand Prairie, AB; Tracey (Charlie) and their children; Jordan, Kyle, Alexander and Madeline of Calgary, AB; Michelle (Brad) and their children; Dylan and Taylor of Calgary, AB; and Denise (Ed) and their children; Emily and Sophie of Summerland, BC; 10 great-grandchildren; two brothers; two sisters; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Sadly predeceased by his parents and six siblings.
Denis spent his working years in Riondel and Kimberley, BC. In addition to working with Cominco, he owned and operated Rocky Mountain Sports. Once retired, his second career in woodworking emerged. He is well known for all the great Adirondack chairs, cutting boards, wine crates, and toy wooden elastic guns that decorate numerous homes near and far. He spent many happy Saturdays at the Penticton Market selling his beautiful creations and making new friends.
For those who adored him, Papa will always be remembered for his hard work and kindness, his special smile and exuberant hugs, the countless hours spent together at the market or on any one of the many family trips, and finally for the way he filled his home with the smells of sawdust and his culinary delights, especially his delicious cookies.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Details to follow.
Memorial tributes may be made to the BC Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.
