Dennis George Schaefer of St Albert was born in Broadview, SK, and grew up in Chilliwack, BC. He enjoyed a thirty-five year career with the RCMP in Alberta, retiring in 2003. Dennis thought himself an ordinary man yet he lived an extraordinary life. He always knew who he was whether working in operational policing or walking with presidents and kings. Dennis’ indomitable spirit and good humour won him many friends and admirers. He was gracious without surrender.
Dennis is survived by his wife Barbara, son Paul and daughter-in-law Jenifer, daughter Gillian and son-in-law Lucas Percy, mother Anne Schaefer and brother Wayne and family, and numerous in-laws, out-laws, friends and associates.
Funeral service will be held January 20th, 2:00pm at St. Albert Alliance Church, 1km west of St. Albert Trail on Villeneuve Road.
