Dennis Shier passed away at Kelowna General on August 26, 2014 at the age of 74. Dennis is lovingly remembered by his wife Marjorie of 52 years; children Carrie Bahris(Dale) of Abbotsford BC, Theresa Aronson(Duane) of Nelson BC, Jason Shier(Shannon) of Menifee, California and Sheryl Tymkow(Steve) of Kelowna, BC; his grandchildren Mark, Jael, Chantelle, Garrett, Celine, Tory, Liam and Gracie; and great grandchild Ayson. He is survived by his brother Ken Shier(Marilyn) and sister Jeanine Findlater(Doug).
Dennis was raised in Vernon, lived in Telkwa as he worked hard as a loader operator and retired in Westbank. Dennis was a quiet and caring man. In his younger years he was an avid fisherman. He often took the whole family as well as extended family camping and on vacations which has left them with many fond memories. Although he was a man of few words, his close contact with family by phone, showed his great love for his family. His firm faith in the earthly resurrection prompted one of the last conversations with Marjorie to say “see you in Paradise.” And so we will.
