May 26, 1947 - Feruary 26, 2017
Dennis deeply loved his family and friends, was greatly appreciated for all he gave, and will be sorrowfully missed. He was both a lover of people and of life itself, immersing himself in his community, whether through generous giving to arts organizations, volunteering through service clubs, or offering great conversation to those around him.
Professionally, Dennis was a retired CPA and successful business owner in Grand Junction. He truly enjoyed designing business plans for others to reach their goals. Personally, he enjoyed a variety of activities, including hunting, farming and gardening, river rafting, wine making, pottery, and travel.
Dennis shared his passions with his wife, Lin. They first shared life and love together in Grand Junction, Colorado, but most recently made their home in Eufaula, Oklahoma with their beloved pets and farm animals.
Some of the many organizations Dennis contributed his time and resources to: Muskogee Rotary Club (past President of Redlands Grand Junction, CO club and 30-year member of Downtown Grand Junction Club), DAV, SAR, volunteered at Muskogee VAMC, board member for Western Colorado Center for the Arts, Boy Scouts of America (Eagle Scout).
Dennis was preceded in death by his parents. Survivors include his wife, Lin Morris; sister, Corlee; children, Christine and her husband, Steve, Neil; grandchildren, McKenna and Riley; nephew, Chris and his wife, Angie; great-nephews, Nik and Eli; step-children, Kimberly, Adrienne and her husband, Todd; step-grandchildren, Christina and her husband, Brandon, Ben, Chris, Eric, Annika, and Maren; many other dear relatives and friends.
A Memorial will be Saturday, March 4th at 10:00 a.m. in Rowsey Chapel, St. Paul Methodist Church, 2130 W. Okmulgee St, Muskogee, OK.
