Dennis was born on June 23, 1941 in Regina, SK. He attended the U of S, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering, and graduated with a MSc from the University of Guelph in 1968. He was employed by Alberta Agriculture for 39 years, retiring in 2002.
Dennis was an avid curler. He loved nature, cards, playing pool and photography. He was always a fan of going for coffee. He spent lots of time volunteering for the McKillop United Church Property Committee, and the Lethbridge and Interfaith Foodbanks. You could also find him doing yard work around the condo.
Alzheimer’s Disease affected him in the last seven years of his life. We thank all of his caregivers at St. Therese Villa, where he spent the last year of his life. Dennis’ remains have been donated to the University of Calgary for medical research.
A Memorial Service will be held at MCKILLOP UNITED CHURCH, 2329 – 15 Avenue South, Lethbridge, AB on Friday, March 3, 2023 at 2:00 PM with Reverend Trevor Potter officiating.
