Dennis Melvin Cork

Born in Lacombe, Alberta

Nov 24, 1942 ~ July 14, 2015

These are my own words written with the help of my wife Margret.

Dennis passed away from having lung cancer peacefully at home with family around him.

Predeceased by his father Len Cork, mother Beatrice Mitchell, stepfather Ernie Mitchell, brother Stan.

Survived by my wife Margret, my children Mike, Joe, Ken, Phillip and Juanita (Graham). My stepchildren Jason (Kerry), Chyanne (Tim), Craig, Billy, Peter. I leave behind 18 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter. I leave behind brothers Selmer (Diane) and Daryl. Also I leave behind many, many good friends that I have known over the years.

I worked as a log loader for many years up and down the coast. A job that I loved, I worked for my dad at Len’s Auto Wrecking, I also had my own truck long hauling across Canada. I’ve done many other jobs also. I enjoyed driving race car (Bomber class) and help build race cars with Jeff. I want to thank everyone involved that made it possible for me to drive a race car again which I won. What a thrill that night for me. Past 6 years I found my passion in singing and doing Karaoke with Joel and many of my friends. Volunteering my time to sing at the seniors homes and volunteering at the healing room in C.R. I’m going to a better place soon. No more pain and suffering for me. God bless you all and thank you for all the good times over the years.

Celebration of Life will be August 29th at 1pm at 127 Henry Rd. Campbell River. Your welcome to come earlier. It will be potluck with Karaoke. For more details call Joe in the evening hours. 250-218-2253. By request no flowers.
