Dennis William Holm

May 3, 1953 – March 10, 2016

It is with deep sadness we wish to announce the passing of our beloved husband and father. On the morning of Thursday, March 10, Dennis William Holm lost his valiant fight with cancer. He passed away peacefully at his home in Campbell River with family by his side.

Dennis was born May 3, 1953 in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan and had a very fulfilling, yet short life. The world not only lost a generous, honest, caring man but a devote father, husband, best friend and Saskatchewan Roughriders fan. Den is survived by Judy, his loving and devoted wife of thirty-eight years, children; Christopher (Laura), Robert and Erin, grandchildren; Kira and Arik, mother; Melva, sisters; Diane (Jim) and Penny (Giles) and brother, Ron (Marcia) along with a large extended family.

Den was not only larger than life, but had a smile that never ended. He was a hard worker and loyal to the core. He never took life for granted and wanted to experience all he could. From living in the Canadian Arctic until his final days, Dennis was an avid outdoorsman. He never did catch that elusive halibut but what a fisherman he was! Dennis was always humble and respectful of what the ocean offered. He loved quiet Sundays and walks on the beach with family and his loyal fourth, four legged child, Harley. Dennis was just beginning to enjoy the perks of retirement, was taken too soon and shall be deeply missed.

Sincerest appreciation and gratitude to Dr. S. LeBeuf and Barb B., RN for all their unwavering care and compassion during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to The Canadian Cancer Society’s Vancouver Island Lodge under Dennis Holm’s name by calling 250-592-2244 or 1-800-663-7892. There he spent many weeks in comfort during his radiation treatment.

“His life was a blessing, his memory a treasure, he is loved

beyond words and shall be missed beyond measure.”

As per Dennis’ wishes, there shall be no funeral service but a Celebration of Life shall take place Saturday, May 7, between

1pm and 4pm at our home, 657 Nodales Drive, Campbell River.
