February 26, 1957 – September 27, 2021

Passed away peacefully at home with his beloved wife, Ann, by his side. Greatly missed by his Stepchildren; Virginia and Clive (Elizabeth), his Grandchildren; Jeffrey, Hailey, Pippa, and Quin; his big brother Brian (Brenda) and his nephews; Chris (Amber) and Mike (Brianne). He also leaves behind many family and friends that will always remember his wit, humour, intelligence, integrity and charm.

Dennis was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and was raised in Calgary. His first job at A&W paved the way for his impeccable work ethic while his exceptional LSAT scores brought him to Osgoode Hall in Toronto where he started his career as a respected and distinguished Criminal Lawyer.

Dennis lived life with intensity, passion and verve. He loved to travel off the beaten track, whether to Iran, India, Peru, Kenya, Morocco or Spain. He loved people and was a Rotarian and a Big Brother. He had a love for flying, riding his motorbike, and good wine.

A celebration of Life will be held at the Simcoe Funeral Home, 38 James St. E Orillia on Sunday October 3rd from 1-3 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Dennis’s name to the Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital Foundation for a special bed with a Revolving Air Mattress through the Simcoe Funeral Home (705) 327 0221.
