  1. Grace and Family

    We’re so sorry to hear of Dennis’s passing. We’ll always remember Dennis (and Grace) from the curling rink.

    Gerry and Kathie

  2. Dennis was my first Boss at Tastee Freez…he taught me so much during my time there and I will cherish those memories always. He ran a tight ship, but he knew how to have fun at work too! Grace, I am so sorry for your loss…thinking of you and your family during this time, and sending hugs your way.

  3. I thanked Dennis a few years ago for taking a chance and hiring me while still in high school, and although we had not seen each other in many years it was great to catch up and share stories and remember the past as if we had never lost touch.

    Dennis was my first Boss in the food and beverage industry and I always respected the way he ran Tastee Freez restaurant with Grace, the passion and dedication it took to make the restaurant work was one of the foundations I took as I pursued my own career in the hospitality industry. Now 26 years later and still a chef I always look back at fond memories and good laughs we shared at Tastee Freez,

    Grace and family, I share in your lose, Dennis will be missed but never forgotten

  4. Grace, Les, Susan and your families: Cherish your memories like we will at Club Shuswap Golf. Dennis was a big part of our corporate family and will be truly missed. Remembering those steaks hot off the BBQ!

    Tony & Noreen Barnard and all the staff at Club Shuswap Golf.

  5. Where in the world will we find another friend like Dennis? We will miss him. Mike and Dianne

  6. Dennis will always be fondly remembered, Grace and family we are so sorry for your loss. Jerry & Debbie
