Peter John Rémillard
B.C.L., L.L.B., CFP
It is with profound sadness that we announce the tragic passing on Tues., Feb. 24, 2015 of Peter John Rémillard.
He was the beloved husband of Patricia of Morrisburg, and the devoted father of Liam of Kingston. Peter was the dear brother of Richard (Alexandra) of Ottawa, and Kathleen (Gary) Broadhurst of Knowlton, Que. He was the cherished brother-in-law of Nancy Boucher (Raymond Conley) of Toronto, and George (the late Kathleen) Gamble of Guelph. He will be sadly missed by nieces Melissa, Kelly, Meghan, Kristen, and Caroline, and nephews James, Evan, Nicolas, and Patrick. He is survived by his father, Romeo of Montreal, and was predeceased by his mother, Margaret (nee Paisley).
Peter graduated from McGill University in 1977, with a Bachelor of Civil and Common Law. He was fluent in English, French, and German, with the latter language honed overseas on student work exchanges. After articling with the Toronto Law Firm of Holden Murdock in 1978, he was first called to the Ontario Bar in 1979, and then later called to the Barreau du Quebec/Quebec Bar in 1983.
Peter joined the law firm of Gorrell and Grenkie in Morrisburg, Cardinal, and Ingleside in 1980, and became partner in the firm in 1983. Although he grew up in a big city (Montreal), Peter really embraced small town life — which is what attracted him to Morrisburg in the first place. His practice focused on corporate, commercial (farm), tax, real estate, and estate planning. The firm expanded into the Chesterville area with the acquisition of Cass, Grenkie and Rémillard in 1990. To enhance the service offerings for his clients, Peter completed the Certified Financial Planning Program, and was awarded the CFP designation in 1999.
Peter had significant community involvement, which included the Canadian Cancer Society, Chamber of Commerce, local Business Improvement Area Association, municipal council, St. Mary’s Parent Council, Upper Canada Playhouse, and the Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation.
Peter, a devoted family man, started with Therien Jiu-Jitsu and Kickboxing in 2001 with his son. In 2011, Peter successfully earned his black belt. This achievement, a significant one, is associated with achieving excellence, something Peter strived for in everything he did. He then went on to successfully complete the Can Ryu Jiu-Jitsu Teaching Program and became a Sensei. Sensei Peter was a respected teacher and positive motivator taking great pride in other people’s accomplishments.
In one way or another, Peter was always looking after others. It is now Peter’s turn to be looked after. Forever rest in sweet and blissful peace.
The arrangements were entrusted to Parker Funeral Home in Morrisburg (613-543-2271).
