GARY WILLIAM REMILLARD Gary William Remillard peacefully passed away in his Pahrump home September 28, 2020. He was 71. Gary spent the majority of his life in Oregon. He graduated with honors from OCE with a B.S. in Chemistry and Physics. By profession, he was a research and developmental organic (wood products) chemist.

He loved to play bridge and watch movies; although, in his heart of hearts, wood always called to him. Gary's passion for creating beautiful pieces out of wood touched so many hearts and will live on in his memory. He was proceeded in death by his parents, Raymond and Lucille Remillard and by his sister, Diane Berry. Gary is survived by his wife, the love of his life for 50 years, Sharon Remillard; daughter, Stacie (Andrew) Risen; son, Louis Remillard; beloved grandchildren, Trevor and Taylor Risen and Noah Remillard; sister, Janice Bourne. A Mass will be held October 23, 2020, 11:00 a.m. at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church, in Pahrump, Nevada.
