It is with deep regret that we announce the death of Denis Thériault, a member of our greater Terriot family, and past President of the "Association des familles Thériault de l'Amérique".

We first met Denis during our preparations for the CMA 2009 in Caraquet, NB. Denis made an appeal to bring together the heads of all Terriot organizations. He was firmly convinced that the family could accomplish more with all organizations working together than by continuing separately. We found him to be dynamic, inclusive in his approach with people and steadfast in his conviction. As a result of his efforts, a coalition was formed between the organizations which has already produced results. We will sorely miss Denis.

On behalf of the entire family, the descendants of Jehan and Perrine Terriot, we convey our most sincere condolences to his loving spouse, his children and his family and to the organization he most loved, the Association des familles Thériault d'Amérique.
