September 11,1951 - December 21, 2012
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Dennis after a brief yet courageous battle with cancer. He was 61 years old. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Predeceased by his father, Andrew, mother, Betty, and sister, Beatrice, he is survived by his wife, Joanne, his daughters Jennifer (Joel) Leonard, Rachel (Dallas) Synchyshyn, and his beloved granddaughter Ava Leonard, his siblings Ray, Lynne, Ron, Greg, Charlie, Marilyn, Calvin, and Dale (and their spouses) and many nieces and nephews. Born in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan Dennis moved to the Lower Mainland in the early 1970s. He worked hard in the construction industry for the duration of his career, and enjoyed achieving success in operating his own business. Many thanks to the physicians and staff at the BC Cancer Agency - Fraser Valley Centre for their kind and compassionate care during his brave fight against cancer. A Celebration of Dennis' Life will be held Saturday, December 29th at 11am at Peace Portal Alliance Church 15128 27B Avenue, Surrey, BC. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Friends of Semiahmoo Bay Society is gratefully appreciated.
