Deneau- It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jim Deneau, age 77 years of Corunna on Saturday December 9, 2023. Jim was predeceased by his parents, James and Ila Deneau and by his brother, Bill. He is survived by; his loving wife of 45 years, Sheila; his daughter Andrea (Russell) of Fleet, England; his son, Ryan (Nicole) of London, ON; his grandson, Sebastian of Fleet, England; his brother, John Mark (Lois) of Brantford and by his sisters, Laura (Bill) of Ridgeway, Peggy (Tony) of St. Ann’s and Louise of Elliot Lake. Jim was born in Windsor but lived in various places throughout Ontario due to his father’s work in the Air Force. He went to the University of Windsor and got his Masters in Social Work from Waterloo Lutheran. He began his career with the Children’s Aid Society in Bruce County and retired in 2006 from the Ministry of Community and Social Services, where he worked at the Southwestern Regional Centre in Cedar Springs. Jim will be remembered for his desire to make people laugh. He had a joke or two for anyone who would listen. He was an avid Montreal Canadians supporter and a great fan of the Sarnia Legionnaires and the Mooretown Flags.
