Loving, loyal, kind, best friend, and Daddy to Lianne (Marion) Lapierre and mentor, and father figure to Robert Lapierre. Gilles loved his grandchildren more than the world itself.

He will be sadly missed by Sue and Lawrence Douglas. Gilles was loved by everyone who knew him. He was kind, humble, loyal, and always jolly. Gilles was our foundation, everyone felt they could turn to him for his wisdom, guidance, and friendship. His generosity was matched only by his humility. He married Helen in 1976 and together they raised two amazing daughters. Their family grew to include 2 wonderful son in laws and 4 of the sweetest grandchildren. Gilles built the family home that became the rock where so many of us gathered to grow stronger with his and Helen’s guidance and support. There was always something to drink, and eat and a ready welcome for all friends and family. Gilles graduated from Forestry at Sault College, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, in 1977 and worked for the Ministry of Natural Resources for several years before he began his career as Superintendent Wood Purchaser at Domtar Fine Papers. Gilles was a loyal employee for 23 years before the mill closed their doors. He then started his own company Seaway Valley Forest Management where he did Consulting for land and woodlot owners. He was also a sales representative for Curran Renewable Energy LLC. He loved the great outdoors, and was an avid hunter, fisherman, golfer, curler, and we cannot forget to mention that he had the best hair.
