Dennis W. Poff, 67, of Michigan City passed away on Sunday, Oct. 10, 2021, at home.
Dennis leaves behind his children, Amber Poff (Luke Stigler), Matthew Poff, and Amy Shores, all of Michigan City; grandchildren, Weston Smith, Henry Stigler, Elliott Stigler, Payton Shores (Tyler Warth), Makenna Shores and Dalton Shores; and great-granddaughters, Morgan, Aubrie and Bonnie; brothers, Christopher (Karen) Poff and Randy (Betsy) Poff, both of Michigan City; and many, many friends and family.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Hollis and Barbara Poff; and beloved wife, Linda Poff. It was after her passing that Dennis's family discovered he could cook, and he enjoyed smoking a variety of critters.
Dennis loved to work, and he was in sales at Helman Tire for 18 years. When he wasn't at work, he was working around the house, on a vehicle, or on a friend's house or vehicle.
Big D enjoyed fast cars, golf, bowling, Alabama football, cheap domestic beer, bourbon and telling stories. Above all else, he loved his grandkids. From adventures in Wisconsin, Ohio, Alabama and Michigan, to cookouts at the house, the kids took the spotlight in everything he did.
Dennis will be remembered for his generosity, warmth, sense of humor, work ethic, storytelling and his bacon.
Friends are invited to meet with the family on Friday, Oct. 15, 2021, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Geisen-Carlisle Funeral Home, 613 Washington St., Michigan City, IN, 46360. An additional visitation will be held on Saturday, Oct. 16, 2021, from noon until the time of service at 1 p.m. at the funeral home.
