Buchanan Lodge No.550
Passed January 9,2024
Passed peacefully January 9th, from heart-related illness, at the age of 80. Survived by his wife of 36 years, Diane (née Sweeney - Smillie); and stepchildren, Troy (Olla), Shandis (Scott) and Tyler (Liz). Dennis "Papa" was loved by his grandchildren, Kaily (Alex), Shea (Matt), Sydney (Jordan), Liam, and Ethan; and eight great-grandchildren. He will also be missed by his nephew, Graham; and nieces, Saundra, Tammy, and Andrea. Dennis retired from a long career at National Steel Car, but will be most remembered for his tireless work with Hamilton Chamber of Commerce, Hamilton Tiger Cats ticket operations, National & Ontario Baseball Umpires Association, and Hamilton Shriners. Dennis was also a dedicated volunteer with the CANUSA games, and Sacred Heart Parish Church. Dennis' life was one of dedication, loyalty, and passion; he selflessly gave his time to anyone in need. He loved his family, and cherished his friends; his laugh was genuine and will be missed by so many. Visitation will be held at P.X. Dermody Funeral Home, 796 Upper Gage Ave. (between Mohawk and Fennell), on Sunday, January 14, from 6 - 9 p.m. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Monday, January 15, 2024, at 11 a.m. Lunch after at the church hall.
