Denis passed away at the age of 82 in his home where he was born and spent his life. Denis enriched many lives and was well known for his good nature, kindness, humor, zest for life and his infectious laugh. He worked hard and played hard all his life, loved doing things with his family and friends and thoroughly enjoyed having lots of people around. Denis loved music and entertained many people over the years and was an avid and talented pilot that brought him tremendous joy.

Denis was dedicated to his work and family, loved to read, fish, camp, hunt and enjoyed all sports. Few people enjoyed life as much as Denis and he will be greatly missed by his community, his close friends and his family.

A service to celebrate and remember Denis will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made to the St. Francis Xavier Parish Cemetery or the Wawota Community Cemetery in memory of Denis.

I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one,
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles,
When Day is done, I’d like to leave an echo
Whispering softly down the ways, of happy times,
and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun.
Of happy memories that I leave when my life on earth is done.
