It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we announce the passing of Denis Andrew Roy, on April 11, 2019 at the age of 67.
Denis will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife, Gwenyth; his five children: Julie (Marvin), Jennifer (Kevin), Michael, Amanda (Erik), and Brittney (Jonathan); his nine grandchildren: Lucas, Joshua, Jacob, Meghan, Dillon, Carter, Logan, Peyton, and Kinsley; he is also survived by his two sisters: Louise (Randy) and Rosanne (Keith) and their families, along with many close friends and extended family. Denis is predeceased by his father Eugene and mother Marie.
We cannot say enough about the care, compassion and support Denis and our entire family was shown by the amazing team at the Grey Nuns Tertiary Palliative Care Unit 43. Thank you to Dr. Megan Sellick, nurses and staff who provided such comfort, support and care of Denis and our family at this difficult time.
A Memorial Service to celebrate Denis’ life will be held at 2pm on Sunday, May 5, 2019 at Connelly-McKinley Edmonton South (4820 Meridian Street, Edmonton).
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Denis may be made to the Covenant Foundation – Grey Nuns Palliative Care.
