Last time we caught up was the last time he came back to Perth. Sitting next to the pool telling me I had plenty of room for improvement after a very poor attempt at making perogi. Little did I know that the last time we spoke would be the last time we spoke. Will miss you mate. Love to Tessa and Kenya.

Beautiful Kenya and Tessa, you should be so proud of how beautifully you spoke, that really does take strength and courage. Even though we don't speak often I love you both, and It was really special to be able to watch this. Dennis was certainly of a kind and I will always have fond memories. sending all our love from Australia xxx

Thank you so much for sharing the service online for those of us who couldn't make it there. It was incredibly moving and beautiful and Dennis, I'm sure, is even prouder of his family today, if that's even possible. You've given us all another wonderful memory to cherish and we're so grateful for everything you've done to celebrate and honour Dennis's life.

Our heartfelt sympathy to Tesa, Kenya and families. We have treasured memories of your time in Australia and our holidays in Canada with Patricia and Dennis. Only Dennis could eat 40 donut holes from Tim Hortons and not put on weight. A true gentleman. Gone but not forgotten.

Dennis taught us how to lean forward into our lives...
~ live with intention and walk to the edge
~ listen hard and play with abandon
~ practice wellness, laugh and risk love
~ continue to learn and appreciate your friends
~ choose with no regrets and fail with enthusiasm
~ stand by your family
~ celebrate the Holidays that make sense
~ lead or follow a leader
~do what you love and live as if this is all there is.
With my deepest condolences to Kenya, Tesa & Leigh and their families. Sending my love from Simcoe, Ontario. xo.
