Dennis passed away peacefully on October 14, 2021 at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice with his family by his side after a long 27 month courageous struggle with pancreatic cancer.
He is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 54 years Marise, son Richard (Kelley), granddaughter Laurel, step-granddaughters Kayla and Amy, siblings Glenn, Brenda and Karen, brother-in-law Jim Stuart (Irene) and many other relatives and friends. Predeceased by his dearly missed son Gregory (2014), parents Emanuel and Elizabeth Bossert, in-laws Jim and Doreen Stuart.
Dennis was born and raised in Kamloops, graduating from NorKam Secondary. He spent his working years at numerous different positions in Kamloops, retiring early.
Thank you to Dr. Cattaneo, Dr. Pwint, Dr. MacDonald, Dr. Kanji, all the nurses at the Kamloops Cancer Clinic, and all the nurses at Kamloops Home and Community Care. Also many thanks to that special group of nurses and staff, at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice who looked after Dennis in his final days; you will not be forgotten.
As per his wishes there will be no service and his cremated remains will be placed beside his son's niche in Hillside Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice, or Royal Inland Hospital Cancer Clinic in Dennis' name would be appreciated.
