Dennis John Mould
October 8, 1946 – April 12, 2009
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the sudden death of our dear husband, dad, grandpa, brother and friend, Denny.
Denny leaves behind his best friend and wife of 42 years, Sandy, and their two children, Kerry and Darlene, son-in-law, Franco, and beloved grandchildren, Rebbecca and Sarah. They were the light of his life.
He also leaves behind three surviving siblings, Jean, Cathy and Jamie, and many nieces and nephews. He goes to join his mom and dad, Edna and Jack, and his sister Avis.
Denny was born in Burns Lake, BC. He spent his early years in Smithers. It was there, at just 15 years old, that he met the love of his life and future wife, Sandy. They fell in love and were married in 1967. After their marriage, he attended electrical training at BCIT in Vancouver. He was a volunteer firefighter and ambulance attendant in Smithers, where their two children were born in 1967 and 1970. In 1972, they moved south. He worked as an electrician at the Weyerhaeuser pulp mill in Kamloops, then at jobs in Revelstoke and Adam’s Lake, before starting at the Kamloops Weyerhaeuser sawmill, where he worked until he retired in 2007.
He was an avid golfer and enjoyed fishing, but more than anything, he loved being a grandpa best of all. Denny and Sandy had the travel bug, taking many trips abroad, including several extended vacations with their fifth-wheel trailer across Canada and the USA. They enjoyed the company of their many wonderful friends and family and made many new ones in their trips south. He and Sandy were inseparable and did everything together.
A Celebration of Denny’s life was held at 11:00 am on Friday, April 17, 2009, in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel, 285 Fortune Drive, with Canon Jack Phelps officiating.
Denny suffered from Pulmonary Fibrosis and Colitis. He asked that in lieu of flowers his friends and family make a donation to the Canadian Lung Association or the Crohn’s Colitis Foundation of Canada in his honour. Always thinking of others, in a final act of pure selflessness, he donated his eyes to the Eye Bank.
We will miss him terribly, but feel blessed to have had him with us for an all too short 62 years.
May he rest in peace.
