Obituary For Denis Ernest Joseph Theriault

August 16, 1953 – March 30, 2022

It is with shattered hearts that we mournfully announce that Jesus called our beloved, Denis Theriault, home on Wednesday, March 30, 2022, in Grande Prairie, AB.

Denis was born on August 16, 1953, in Ft. McMurray, AB. After leaving school, Denis moved to Edmonton where he worked in construction, and became a jack-of-all-trades, becoming adept in carpentry, electrical, plumbing, flooring, and drywall. He put these skills to use as a business owner as well as in the oil patch where he worked as a shop foreman. Denis spent many years setting up and maintaining oil field camps before eventually retiring as a field supervisor.

Denis is survived by his loving wife Wendy, sons Denny, Shawn, and Tyrell (Krystal), brothers Paul (Marie), Phillip, Real, Gerard, and Bernard (Maureen), and sister Linda Cooke, brothers-in-law Frank Daskewech and Ken Daskewech, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and their families.

He is pre-deceased by his parents René and Theresa Theriault, brothers Albert and Victor, nephews Stephen and Matthew, and niece Stephanie Olson.

Denis’s sense of humour, willingness to help anyone, and his eternal love for his family and friends will forever leave a huge hole in our hearts.

A Celebration of Life in honour of Denis will be held on April 23, 2022, at the Polish Hall, 10960 104 St., NW, Edmonton, AB, at 1:30 pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in memory of Denis to Stars Air Ambulance, or the Stollery Children’s Hospital.
