Dennis Cronin

It is with a broken heart, memories to last a lifetime, and endless love that I tell you Dennis has his wings. He can fly over all those hunting spots, great rivers and oceans filled with fish, and his love of nature, wilderness and wildlife.

Dennis fought hard for almost four years with cancer, many of those years with a smile still on his face, teasing his nurses.

Dennis was the most compassionate, caring person who would have helped anyone, and had an amazing array of friends, too many to count. Those of you that knew him, and those that loved him, will miss him forever, he was that wonderful. He had the patience to teach many of his knowledge of hunting, fishing, shed antler hunting, and anything to do with rocks, trees and mountains.

He will always have the legacy of helping four families have closure with the loss of their family members of the WW2 Avro Anson.

Dennis now joins our daughter Crystal, his parents, Jim and Theresa Cronin, my parents, Otto and Rachel Halvorson, half brothers Carl, Gerald and half sister Margaret in peace.

Dennis leaves behind a heartbroken wife, Lorraine and two very handsome sons, Kyle and Luke, who follow in their fathers footsteps. Brother in law Harold Halvorson (Sandi), Sisters in law Rosemaire (Bryan), and Oline. Brother Mike (Josephine), and brother Peter. Numerous family members that held him so dear.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the cancer society…Thank you.

A Celebration of Life will be on April 23rd, 2016 @ 12 noon

St Louis de Montfort Catholic Church, 60 Fern Road, Lake Cowichan, BC.
