Fondly remembered by many aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and his many devoted friends. Predeceased by his sister Ronda. Dennis had a passion for life and he lived it till the end, always making people laugh and smile. He was compassionate, trustworthy and always the joker, even as he fought every day of his life to take the next breath. Dennis was the true ultimate fighter. He never gave up... ever. He will never be forgotten. Family will be receiving friends at the McGuinty Funeral Home on December 14, 2013 at 10 am till time of service in the chapel at 11 am.
