It is with heavy heart and great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Dennis “Denny” Robert Thompson of Rosedale, B.C. at the age of 57 years. He was born in Sudbury, Ontario on February 14, 1948.
Dennis is survived by his wife Brenda of 27 years, brother, Albert (Shirley), sisters; Muriel (Ian), Alma (Jake), nieces Rhonda (Jordon), Patti, Diana (Doug), Tammy and Lori, nephews William “Willie” and Kevin and great nieces and nephews. He is also survived by the “Anderson’s”. Dennis was predeceased by his parents, brothers Harold “Buddy” and Delbert.
Dennis grew up in Powell River and spent his adult life in Chilliwack. He worked in the logging industry and the District of Chilliwack. Dennis was happiest when taking down big ugly trees and working outdoors. Over the last several years he worked on and in “The Shop” which gave him great joy. Dennis’ playful nature and strong opinions will be truly missed by those that knew him.
Services will be held on Wednesday, September 28, 2005 at 10:00 am from the Chapel of Henderson’s Funeral Home in Chilliwack with a reception being held afterwards in Henderson’s Tea Room. If friends wish, donations can be made to the B.C. Heart and Stroke Foundation.
