Denis Duguay

July 26, 1965 — January 18, 2021

Watertown – Mr. Denis Duguay, of Watertown, formerly of Waltham, died Monday, January 18, 2021 at Saint Elizabeth's Hospital in Brighton. He was 55.

Denis was born in Waltham on July 26, 1965, a son of the late Emile J. Duguay and Laurieanne M. (Chevarie) Duguay of Watertown.

He was a 1984 graduate of Waltham High School and despite disabilities always enjoyed working on home improvement or landscaping projects helping family, friends and neighbors. Denis was a beloved and devoted son who looked forward to trips to New Brunswick where many members of the family still reside.

His best pal and pup, Chia, was always by his side.

In addition to his mother, Laurianne, he leaves his sisters and brothers, Sr. Ginette Duguay, SCO of Mattawa, Ontario, Gilles Duguay of Redwood City, California, Albeo Duguay (Paula) of Maynard, Nicole Thetonia (Frank) of Marlborough, Paul Duguay (Sheila) of Watertown and Dean Duguay of Folsom, California and his nieces and nephew, Keegan and Grace Duguay and Frankie and Amber Thetonia.

Family and friends will honor and remember Denis's life by gathering on Saturday, January 23rd in Saint Jude Church, 147 Main Street, Waltham where a Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m.

Tuesday, December 22, 2020 – a note from the funeral home pursuant to Governor Baker's recent order:

During times of uncertainty and crisis one might wonder what to do at the loss of a loved one or how to show support to a friend given the limitations that the pandemic continues to present.

Telephone your friend to offer words of love, support and a verbal hug, drop something delicious by the house, leave a condolence on the funeral home website, make a donation to their favored charity, send a card or flowers or have a Mass said, remain in touch, and above all else . . . say prayers for the deceased and their family and the world during this difficult and unprecedented time.

These simple gifts of sympathy and charity are more valuable than you will ever know.
When public wakes are held capacity limits mean that your visit to the venue where they are held should be brief to allow other guests time to say hello to the family. Only members of the immediate family remain present throughout.

It goes without saying that people who have lost someone are especially sensitive and understanding to the concerns that some of their own family members and friends may have about visiting any public places right now. If this does not feel like the right time for you to venture out please don't.

Space limitations also mean that funeral services inside the funeral home and in many places of worship will also be private. Most services, at the family's request, will also be live streamed and recorded for future viewing. The link to access the channel is found at the bottom of the obituary notice online.

Cemetery services are included in the current outdoor gathering limit of twenty-five people.

During any events, public or private, common sense precautions prevail. That includes masks covering your nose and mouth, staying with your household group throughout the services and keeping a sensible distance.

Thank you . . . again . . . for your patience and understanding.
