May 6, 1943 – July 25, 2021
It is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of Dennis Wahoski on July 25, 2021, from this earth to his eternal home! Dennis was born in Minnedosa, Manitoba, on May 6, 1943, the oldest of 7 children – 5 brothers – Ron, Jerry, Richard, Mark and Darcy and an only sister, Joy.
Dennis’ strong work ethic, from being raised on a farm, served him well in a variety of jobs he held – a cook’s assistant on the DEW line, sinking shafts in potash mines in Saskatchewan and 30 years with the Federal Government as an Environmental Health Officer which took him through the National Parks, as far as Banff and Lake Louise and working with local First Nations and developments on their lands.
It was in Saskatchewan that Dennis met his wife, Eva Margaret Peters and they were married in St. Paul’s Cathedral in Saskatoon on September 14, 1968. Dennis and Eva shared their love for each other by adopting 4 children – Danielle in 1976; Nathan in 1978 and Lynette and Clayton in 1988. Dennis was a loving and devoted father and enjoyed being involved in his children’s activities.
Dennis was also a devoted grandfather of 7 – Logan, Linden, Dylan, Aylah and Oliver, William and Faye, all of which live in Salmon Arm and who visited him on a regular basis.
A strong faith and church life was always important to Dennis and he was a faithful and devoted member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Salmon Arm. His faith, and the love and support of the community, helped him through very difficult times in his life, including the death of his daughter, Danielle, in 1985 and his stroke in 2001.
Dennis was a kind and gentle man, generous with his time and talents as he participated in various groups – Knights of Columbus, choir – he loved music – Eucharistic Minister, Cursillo and Pro-life to name a few.
Dennis was predeceased by his parents, Albert and Mary, daughter, Danielle, sister, Joy, brother, Darcy and nephew, Christopher. He is survived by his wife of 53 years Eva and children – Nathan (Stephanie), Lynette (Jason) and Clayton, all 7 grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Our dearest Dennis, our lives will never be the same and we will miss you terribly. We will carry your love in our hearts forever, until we meet again and our circle will once again be complete
