We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Mr. Gilles Fugère in Rockland, Ontario on September 12, 2023, at the age of 75. Gilles will forever be remembered by his loving wife Gail Fugère (nee Gaudet). He was preceded in death by his parents, Denis and Jeanne d’Arc (nee Gagnon). Gilles’ beloved daughter Sarah Jeanne holds dear the memory of her father. He will be greatly missed by his sister Diane Fugère Lamarre (the late Jean) and his brothers Serge (Huguette), Claude, and Éric. Alongside his family, Gilles leaves behind a multitude of cherished friendships.

Gilles lived a life filled with love and passion. He dedicated many years to serving his country as a veteran of the Royal Canadian Air Force (1966-1988). In honor of his remarkable life, a Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, October 13, 2023, at the Beechwood National Memorial Centre from 1-3pm. Following the service, Gilles will be laid to rest in the National Military Cemetery at Beechwood.

In remembrance of his life and service, we hold steadfast to the motto of the Royal Air Force, “Per Ardua Ad Astra,” which translates to “Through adversity to the stars.” Gilles’ memory will forever shine bright as he joins the stars above, leaving a legacy of courage and kindness in our hearts.
