"To beat the band"
Sandy, Utah-Our beloved father, grandfather, son, and friend returned to heaven on Wednesday at home from cancer.
He was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Timothy Maddox and Loris Nielson.
He enjoyed spending time with his friends and family, fishing, shooting guns, camping, and being outside working in the yard. He loved working with his hands and creating any and everything. He was a master handyman! Whatever he did, he had to be organized. He loved music and thought he could play the guitar and drums.
He is survived by his love, Lisa Gafa; parents: Tim (Connie) Maddox, Loris Nielson; children: Charity (Terrance) Oefinger, Hillary (Matthew) Calder, Sara (Simon) Wahlquist, Nathan Maddox; siblings: Tim (Lori) Maddox, Malinda (Dave) Baker; and grandchildren: Easton, Beckham, Kaden, and Loralee.
Dennis is preceded in death by his sister, Misty Nielson.
A viewing will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, April 6, 2015 at Serenity Funeral Home, 12278 South Lone Peak Parkway Draper, UT followed by a graveside service held at Midvale City Cemetery at noon.

Dear Loris, Tim and Malinda;

I'm so very sorry to read of Dennis's passing today.
He had such a great sense of humor, kind heart and loving ways.
I have great memories of him, because of Dennis I was able to meet with my sister a few times before her death. I hope and pray they are together again.
My God keep you in his care and help you in this terrible time.
Love, Kristi
