Dennis O'Dowd

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Dennis O’Dowd of Saint Bruno on April 16, 2020. Born August 22, 1945 in Sillery Qc. He was the son of the late Eleanore Belanger O’Dowd and Raymond O’Dowd. He was the incredible husband of 48 years to Grace Rundle O’Dowd and amazing father to Ryan (JoEve), Brendan (Marie-Pier), Allison (David). The best Grampa to Jacob, Mila, Gabi, Victoria, Eva, and Cruz. Brother to Ellen and Ann O’Dowd and Lawrence (deceased). Brother in law to Lynda & (Gene deceased) Supryka, Anne & John Fair. Uncle to Jeff & Jennifer Baker, Derek & Lisa Supryka and Stephen Richardson as well as many cousins. He leaves behind his dear friends Graham & Stephanie Pilon, Gerry & Flo Hickey, Dr. Suzanne Gagnon Lavoie, Michele & Norm Cherbaka as well as our amazing friends and neighbors in Saint Bruno. Your kindness through Dennis’ sickness will never be forgotten.

Dennis was always a natural comic and loved to make people laugh. He truly succeeded at that and has left an incredible hole in so many friends and family`s lives. Life without him will just not be the same.

Dennis your best buddy Bob is waiting for you with a Cognac in hand. Now you can go back to those 2 hour phone conversations together.

As there will be no funeral at Dennis’ request, a Celebration of Life will be at a later date when we can all be together. Date to be determined.

Dear Grace and family: Dennis will be missed. Working with Grace and Dennis over many years in the garden business was one of the pleasures that both Betty and I had. Dennis was hard working, had a great sense of humour and was an honest man. We enjoyed hearing stories of his family. He was a joy to be around and again, will be missed. May he rest in peace. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you.

Dear Grace, it is with such sadness that we learned today of Dennis’s passing. Please accept our heartfelt condolences. Although we have not been in touch for many years, the times we spent together in St-Bruno with you and Dennis and the St-Bruno Barons’ Football Association were some of the happiest times of our lives. We have such fond memories of working on fund raisers and volunteering in the little cantina at the football field together. We had such great laughs, especially with Dennis and George and their wonderful senses of humour! Please pass on our condolences to the rest of your family on our behalf.

I grew up with the O’Dowds. From Grace’s home daycare to running the famous hot dog stand at the Barons football field, to Gardenia, and years of friendship with Alli. Dennis was always a funny, lighthearted and caring person who loves to make people laugh and feel happy. Take with you all the things that made Dennis, well... Dennis. They live in you! Lots of love you all the family and friends xx

I didn't see Dennis all that often, but every time was a fun experience. He and Bob and Jerry are a great example of people who formed fulfilling and lasting relationships. That's what I remember of him, someone who understood the value of loyalty and friendship.

Nous avons eu l'occasion de rencontrer les parents de Ryan à quelques reprises et chaque fois nous avons pu apprécier la jovialité, la vitalité et surtout la grande amabilité de Dennis. Son départ hâtif nous attriste. Nos meilleures condoléances à Grace, à notre cher beau-fils Ryan et à tout le clan O'Dowd. Les parents de JoÈve, JoAnne Jacob et Pierre Dupuis
