Dennis Harold Laine

1945 – 2015

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our Father, Husband, and Nonno, Dennis Harold Laine. He passed away on October 26, 2015 at the age of 70 in Calgary, AB at the Foothills Hospital surrounded by family. Dennis was born on August 27, 1945 in Whitewood, Saskatchewan to Albert “Bert” and Irene (Callin) Laine and became a little brother to his sister Beverly. Dennis lived in Whitewood until he was 11 years old when his family moved to Cranbrook, BC, where he met and married the love of his life, Adriana (Bertoia) Laine on October 8, 1966. In 1972 they welcomed their daughter Debra into their lives and in 1974 their son David. They later moved their family to Golden and then in 1979 they settled in Invermere. Dennis was a CGA his entire working career and had many wonderful friends in the Valley. Dennis had also been a Volunteer Fireman for 20+ years, a Rotarian and a Free Mason. He loved to go camping at Dunbar Lake in the summer where he loved to fish and was an avid reader. He will be dearly missed by everyone who knew him. Dennis was predeceased by his Father Albert “Bert” Laine. He is survived by his mother Irene Laine; his wife Adriana; his son David; his daughter Debra (Laine) Twomey; his son-in-law Christian Twomey; his granddaughters Grace and April; his sister Beverly (Jim) Watson; and many nieces and nephews.

May the road rise to meet you

May the wind be always at your back

May the sun shine warm upon your face

And the rains fall soft upon your fields

Until we meet again

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
