August 10, 1943 - August 26, 2020

With heavy hearts, we announce that Denis passed away, at the age of 77 years, with his family at his side, on August 26, 2020 in the St. Boniface Hospital.

Denis is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Kathy; son Cory (Dana) (grandson Easton); daughter Cheryl; brother Wayne (Dianne); several nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends. Denis was predeceased by his father William, in 1993 and mother Verna, in 2007.

Denis worked for several companies in Winnipeg as an appliance technician.

In 1980 Denis moved his family to Swan River to work for Westside Appliances and he finally purchased the company in May of 1993. Due to his physical health he was forced to retired in 2005.  Denis and Kathy decided to move back to Winnipeg in 2007 to be close to their family and friends.

Denis enjoyed watching sports, especially hockey and football, he loved music and listening to all his old tunes, and he really enjoyed playing on his x-Box to pass the time. Denis had many lifelong friends that were special to him, especially his buddy Brian, he visited Brian often to talk sports, politics and reminisce about “the good old days”.

Denis’ family was incredibly special to him, especially his Grandson Easton who he loved dearly.

Denis’ family would like to thank the Doctors and nurses at the St. Boniface Hospital ACCU, for the compassionate care they showed toward Denis and the family.

In Accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no formal services held, although a small family gathering will be held at a later date.
