OWEN, Dennis Bengerman

DENNIS BENGERMAN OWEN
September 2, 1933 – June 23, 2020

Dennis passed away peacefully at Lady Minto Hospital. Dennis moved to Salt Spring Island in 1975 with his wife Betty and family. He embraced his new community working in multiple roles during his tenure with BC Ferries until his retirement. He could be found always working quietly in the background within many community organizations such as the Farmer’s Institute, the local Boy Scouts, the Lions Club, the Royal Canadian Legion – Branch 92, and the Lady Minto Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Store.

Dennis was predeceased by: his loving wife of 52 years Betty Owen, Sister Nancy Lloyd of Prince George, and Daughter-in-law Sharon Owen.

He is survived by: Brothers, Glen Owen of Prince George, Sid (Judy) Owen of Port Coquitlam; Sons and Daughter: Terry, Beth (Lewis) Cornwall, Mark (Maureen) of Victoria, Robert of Victoria, David (Wendy) of Lawrencetown NS, his grandchildren and great grandchildren; and companion Ernestine Crawford.

Special thank you to Matthew Marshall and the staff of the Intensive Care Unit at Royal Jubilee Hospital, the staff of Lady Minto Hospital, and all those in the community who supported our family during these difficult times.

Dennis was laid to rest with Betty at Central Cemetery in a private family ceremony on Tuesday Jun. 30, 2020. A memorial / celebration of life service open to all of his extended family and friends will be arranged at a later date.

If you wish to make a charitable donation in his name, please consider the Lady Minto Hospital Auxiliary.
