Denis St. Jean

1952 ∼ 2018

Denis St. Jean

Denis Roland St. Jean of Falmouth passed away on Thursday, Nov. 29, at his Burlington, Vt. home. He was 66.

Denis was born August 19, 1952, in Woonsocket, R.I. to Joseph and Simone St. Jean. Denis grew up in Falmouth and graduated from the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. In 1979 he married Patricia St. Jean (nee DeMita).

Denis was an engineer; his job as an oil rig manager gave him and his family the opportunity to travel the globe. He enjoyed skiing, watching Boston sports and a glass of good French wine—not “the cheap stuff”. He never missed a chance to head to the beach—whether in Falmouth or in Thailand. Despite his gruff exterior, Denis was known for his sense of humor and his extensive knowledge of dad jokes.

Denis is survived by his beloved Z4 BMW, his three daughters, Allison and her husband Glenn, Lindsey and Meridith; his sister, Claudette Schneider of Mashpee; his brother-in-law, Christopher Ball of Mashpee; and his two grandchildren, Logan and Rosie.

Visiting hours will be held for close friends and family at Chapman Cole and Gleason Funeral Home in Mashpee on Friday evening from 4-6 pm. He will have a private burial at the St. Joseph Cemetery in Falmouth. In lieu of flowers, his daughters ask that you make a donation in his memory to the Vermont Food Bank.
