DENNIS MAXWELL WELSH Retired OPP Sergeant November 25, 1951 - January 5, 2013 Beloved husband of Brenda. Loving father to Nicolle (Phil Bolton), Jeff (April) and Michelle. Loving grandfather to Justin, Jonah, Jaymie, Lillia, Andrew and Decklin. Deeply proud of his family and wanting their happiness always. Proud of his career with the OPP - following in his father's footsteps. He was a confidant and counselor to many - a role he enjoyed and a strength he had that others savoured as he was a most generous soul. He passed away peacefully on his own terms from complications following emergency surgery on New Year's Day. The family wishes to express their sincere thanks to the ICU staff at Lakeridge Hospital, Oshawa whose care was so wonderful and dedicated. No words can describe our loss but we pay tribute to him this week at Armstrong Funeral Home, 124 King St. East, Oshawa. Visitation will be Tuesday, January 8th from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. and Wednesday, January 9, 2013 from 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. followed by a service in the Chapel at 11:30 a.m. Following the service there will be a small lunch and toast to his life; details will be available later at the Funeral home.
