With great sadness we announce the passing of Gilles Branchaud after a courageous battle with cancer. Gilles leaves behind his loving wife Sharon of 39 years along with his family of nine and their families; Lori (Dennis), Tom (Denise & Shannon), Angelle Brown (son Jesse), Bill Canning (Carla), Sherry (Robin, Sean & Patti Vernon), Joyce (Paul, Lyhle & Jordan Coultas), Janice (Dave, Tyler & Olivia Flint), Joel (Susan Alisha, Dustin, Derek (Carl & Tiffany)) and predeceased by his youngest son Mark Branchaud. Gilles will also be missed by his surviving siblings back east; Anita, Paul, John and Gisele and all their families. As well, left to mourn are the many friends Gilles made in the Community while volunteering for the last 15 years at the Food Bank’s, Meals on Wheels and the Senior Centre which gave him such great pleasure.
Heartfelt thanks are extended to all the people from the Sooke and Victoria Hospice, Home care support workers, Doctor’s and the Sooke Shopper’s Drugmart.
