It is with great sorrow that the family announces his passing in Sudbury on Saturday, December 7th, 2013 at the age of 76 years. Son of the late Roch and late Alexina Gingras. Loving spouse of Aline Paquette of Sudbury. Dear step-father of Brenda Beaulieu (Ron) and Helene Lacasse (Aimé) both of Sudbury, Linda Moulaison (Darren) of North Bay, Ryan Paquette of Ottawa and Ronald Paquette (Carole) of Saskatchewan. Survived by his brothers and sisters Francine, Louise, Claude, Jacques, Louis, Rejean, Marcel and Felix. Sadly missed by his grandchildren, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. Gilles worked 30 years for Sudbury Hydro. He will be lovingly remembered as being a prankster as well as an avid outdoorsman; he would spend hours chopping and cording wood. No tree was safe when he was around! In keeping with Gilles’ wishes there will be no visitation or funeral service. Donations (by cheque only) to the Alzeimer’s Society would be greatly appreciated. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the COOPERATIVE FUNERAL HOME, Sudbury.
