Deaths-Dennis-Robert-PetersDennis and Verna farmed with Dennis’s parents, and after his parents’ 1971 retirement, Dennis’ family continued the mixed farming operation. Dennis also drove fuel truck for the Hepburn co-op until an accident in 1990 crushed his leg. Dennis collected axes, cistern pumps, well pumps, and end plates from old drills. He loved working with threshing machines and windmills. Dennis taught his family to play baseball, horseshoes, and hockey. He spent many an autumn with his sons and grandsons “hunting for the big one.” In 2007, Dennis and Verna sold what remained of the farm and moved to Jubilee Centre, Waldheim, Sask., where he enjoyed meeting friends for pool, music, or coffee. Dennis’s last 9 years, he faced cancer. Mid-August, he was hospitalized for blood clots and stomach trouble, and on Aug. 29, he was moved to palliative care. Dennis had a huge heart.
