Unfortunately "near remission" just means not currently spreading or has reduced. Complete remission is there's currently no sign of it from tests but no guarantee it won't come back. It's an awful disease and at stage 4, this will buy him some little extra time.

Aw, I really feel for him. Hearing that C word cancer is an awful thing and then to learn that it's at a bad stage makes it even more devastating. He seems so nice that you can't help but hope for him to make it through this!

It's a nasty cancer. Many do not survive. So if he is responding to treatment then good on him. Recovery from Pancreatic cancer would be a good thing.
