December 13, 1950- January 15, 2018
It is with great sadness and much love that we say goodbye to Dennis Olesen.
He will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his wife of 44 years, Shirley, his daughters Kristy (Craig), Kerry (Stacey), Kelly (Shaun); his grandson Charlie and 'Papa's Dollies': Frankie, Jocelyn & Paige.
Dennis was a much loved older brother to Ellen (Stan), Debbie and Ken (Lavern).
Dennis was predeceased by his parents, Otto and Nora Olesen.
Dennis had time for everyone- whether it was for someone to stop by for a beer and a chat in his garage, to being an expert handyman, to sitting around the fire pit telling stories at the lake. He was a kind hearted, genuine husband, dad, grandpa, brother, uncle, colleague, neighbour and a true friend.
