Dad worked at Aerojet for forty years until his illness prevented him from working any longer. He had the opportunity to be involved in many exciting and important projects. His skills sent him to Washington DC and Pasadena California to work on projects for the space program. One of his projects will be landing on Pluto in the near future so in a way our Dad is still at work. He had the opportunity to meet several of the astronauts that eventually were on the space shuttles he had a hand in building. When it was announced that our Dad had passed away Aerojet sent out this announcement: "As the space shuttle Discovery ends her career in space, it is with great sorrow I must announce the passing of another more local, and no less important, person involved in the space program, Dennis Einarson. He was a craftsmen, mentor, and friend to many. From his days as a farmer in the 50's, Boeing in the 60's, joining us in 1970, and until his passing, he had firsthand involvement in our country's progression to space." We as his family were fortunate enough to be able to call him Dad and Grandpa "Not Bad For a Farm Boy from North Dakota" Rest in Peace Dad. Services will be held at 2:00 pm at Evergreen Washelli, 11111 Aurora Avenue North, Seattle Wa 98133. Remembrances may be sent to Dad's much loved family church, Fjalla Lutheran Church, PO Box 2, Edinburg North Dakota 58277
