Denis was born in Dapp, Alberta and passed away peacefully, at home in Campbell River, on April 18, 2015 with his family and friends by his side.
Denis is predeceased by his parents, Mandy (Gaston) and Mary and his older brother Herman. He is survived by his son Ivan, daughter Gena, son-in-law Dan, grandson Alex and granddaughter Kaitlyn, all of Campbell River, as well as extended family in BC and Alberta
Denis was a kind hearted, gentle man who was always happy to lend a hand to those who needed help. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He leaves behind an enormous hole that will never be filled.
Denis was the happiest when he was with his family and friends, fishing or spending time outdoors.
The family would like to thank Dr. Friderichs, Dr. Ness and the home support nurses for their tremendous care and compassion.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. No service by request.
