  1. It has been such a pleasure in my life to have been in Dennis’ orbit. Thoughtful, funny, ambitious, driven, he was a guy that was easy to admire. His unique take on the general state of affairs was so entertaining and so Dennis. A treasured friend, the wonderful memories left behind will always be cherished. Godspeed Denny.

  2. Our deepest condolences to Melinda on the loss of her much loved husband Dennis. Our love and thoughts are with you at this most difficult time.

  3. I knew you for but a mare moment in time but your impact was vast, you always greeted me with a smile to let me know that we are to always be happy in life, you will be missed Sir Dennis rest easy

  4. It is with absolute pride that I get to say I knew you and worked with you.

    I remember clearly one morning we were sitting in the office waiting for a meeting to start when I heard a laugh – as I looked over at you, you were shaking your head, and smiling ! I couldn’t help but ask what you were thinking about, to which you replied you remembered being at a Hendrix concert and while waiting for the band to start, you saw a man crawl into a speaker and you were wondering if that man could still hear! Ha!

    I am so very thankful for our many conversations, and as an old cat skinner I hope that you keep those paths bladed for us!

    Rest in peace.

  5. My dear brother Dennis, you are the most amazing, loving, kind and generous person that anyone knew and loved. Your smile and laughter will be missed everyday. Our hearts are broken without you. How fortunate we were to have you in our lives, a wonderful brother and son. You don’t have to worry about your darling Melinda, we will protect, support, love and comfort her always. Fondest memories forever! Love you.

  6. Melinda, So very sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time. Thinking of you.

  7. We were overwhelmed with sadness learning of Dennis’s rapidly progrssing illness. Gratefulness soon took over the sadness, grateful that he did not suffer long, grateful that I was able to have you as a dear friend for almost a half of a century. Grateful that you met and introduced us to the love of your life. Grateful that we are now blessed to have Melinda as a dear friend. Dennis was a kind, compassionate, loyal, light up the room with his infectious sense of humour friend that will forever be in our hearts and missed more that words can say

  18. I cannot find words to express how saddened I am at the loss of this gentle and wonderful soul, Dennis Marchessault. Nor for the comforts I wish to express to his wife, my beautiful friend Melinda. And so, I share the words of R. A. Melos on this heartbreaking occasion. May you find comfort in knowing how deeply you are both loved.

    Time is ours, but only fleeting,
    hear the wings of eternity beating,
    soon enough we’ll all be meeting,
    and each of us merrily greeting.
    ~ R. A. Melos
