Adored Pop to Carley, Denis James, Sydney, Joshua, Dawson, Brianna, Sarah, Alicia and Amber. He was predeceased by siblings Laura, Theresa, Rosella, Madeline (the late Ron), Edgar, James and Martin. He will be fondly remembered by his surviving sisters Lucy (the late Michael), Betty (Clayton) and Rita (Adrien), and special nephew Walter, as well as a large extended family.
Denis was known for his generosity and love for his family. In his memory the family would ask that you extend a gesture of kindness to those less fortunate. A private celebration of life will be held in his honour.
