Passed at Sunnybrook Hospital where he had fought valiantly and was beloved by the doctors and staff alike.
Married for 58 wonderful years to Joan Schettler (maiden name Scott) whom he met at St. John’s High school in 1957. They had their first date where he drove her home after a school basketball game and dance.
Dennis came to Toronto from Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1963 to pursue his career as an actuary and will be fondly remembered by many colleagues and friends.
On Bella lake, his most favourite place, he was a steward of the lake and will be dearly missed by everyone who spent magical summers together. Dennis could often be seen fishing from his tin boat, enjoying a cigar or on the dock giving his granddaughters lessons in becoming anglers themselves.
A celebration of life will be held at Humber Valley united Church, 76 Anglessey Blvd Etobicoke on Wednesday May 17th at 2:00 P.M.
