Legault, Dee Dee (Orphil) of Val Marie, Saskatchewan, passed away November 8, 2021. A private service was held in Val Marie on November 11, 2021. The life tribute was given by Carmen Hansen, and prayers were read by Roxanne Schindel. Memories of Dee Dee were written by Bryan Trottier, and read by Dionne Wilson. Dee Dee is survived by his wife Paulette; children: Dionne (Alistair Wilson), Raymonde (Grant Smith), Jason (Cathy); grandchildren: Justin, Jarrett, Callum, Maya, Hamish, Aliya, Madison, Elizabeth, and Josie. He was born in Ponteix, Saskatchewan on September 11, 1946, and attended school in Val Marie. He married the love of his life Paulette Syrenne on October 28, 1967. Dee Dee was a character, well liked, and well-known. He had the ability to talk to anyone, and made friends wherever he went. He had an incredible memory for names and always recognized a face. His ability to tell a story kept everyone captivated from start to finish, his dry wit and sense of humor making him the life of any gathering. Dee Dee was known by all to cook up and eat many strange and wonderful things! An avid gardener, hunter, and fisherman, he cherished time spent in moose camps and fishing up north with family and dear friends. Later living vicariously through hunting stories when he could no longer pursue this passion himself. He would have spent every day hunting and fishing if he could and happily shared his vast knowledge with anyone interested. He treasured spending winters in Mexico and his friends there held a special place in his heart. Dee Dee was a proud father, and grandfather who loved spending time with his family, particularly his grandchildren. If you knew Dee Dee, you also knew all about his kids and grandkids. A diehard Riders fan and proud father-in-law, he dressed almost exclusively in Roughrider gear for years thanks to his son-in-law. Dee Dee will be incredibly missed.
