Dennis and Audrey were married for 63 years and raised their 3 daughters in Bethel. He worked for 35 years for Algoma Steel, was a volunteer member of the Humberstone Fire Department and was on the Canadian Centennial Committee for Humberstone Township in 1967. When Algoma Steel closed in Port Colborne he transferred to Sault Ste. Marie and finished his career there as a blast furnace foreman. Dennis and Audrey spent many days fishing, hunting and camping in the north with many close friends and family. After retirement they returned to the Niagara area and settled in Ridgeway near family. Through the years he enjoyed travelling, stock cars, reading about the Great Lakes, cats, ice cream and of course sports. Dennis spent a lot of time visiting family and friends and he always had a good story to tell. He was the keeper of family history.
A special thank you to the staff at Gilmore Lodge for all of their care.
