May 15, 1932 – July 20, 2019
Peacefully at home on Saturday, July 20, 2019 with family by his side. Beloved Husband and best friend of Beryl Orme for 64 years. Amazing Father of Stephen (Karen) and Christopher (Kathy). Unbelievable Grandad of Dennis (Ashley), Kaitie, Evan (Rubi), Kalen (Becky), and Jono (Ashley). Absolutely fantastic Great-Grandad of Audrey Grace. We will always remember his overwhelming generosity, his sense of humour, his endless support, and his love for his family. Dennis touched many lives and will be greatly missed by his relatives in England and his countless friends. We would like to express our deep gratitude and appreciation to all the doctors and health care workers who always went above and beyond what was expected. Your loving care as we journeyed together was truly remarkable.
Celebration of Life: The immediate family will be holding a private gathering to celebrate a life well lived and well loved.
“Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone.
Those we love can never be more than a thought apart.
For as long as there are memories, they’ll live on in our heart.”
A tree will be planted in memory of Dennis in the Dods & McNair Memorial Forest at the Island Lake Conservation Area, Orangeville. The annual dedication service will be held on Sunday, September 8, 2019 at 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.dodsandmcnair.com
