Cook Southland Funeral Chapel - Delainey(2019)

Dennis August Delainey, 74, passed away peacefully on September 30th, 2019 in the care of the wonderful staff at St. Joseph’s Carmel Hospice in Medicine Hat, Alberta.

Dennis is survived by Sylvia Delainey; his daughter, Sheri (Troy) Grant; his son, Steven (Anna) Delainey; and his son Michael (Tara) Delainey. He is survived by his Grandchildren Katelyn (Anthony) Schnettler; Megan Grant; Joshua Delainey; Carter Delainey; Yzabel Delainey and Gavin Delainey and his great grandson Jackson Schnettler.

Dennis was predeceased by his Stepson Phil Ogle; his parents William and Mary; His Sister-in-Laws Ellen Delainey and Dawn Delainey; and his nephew Jason Delainey.

Born to William and Mary Delainey on New Years Day,1945, in Wilkie, Saskatchewan. He was the third of seven sons and is survived by his brothers John (Geraldine); Bill (Deb); Bob (Donna); Fred; Brian (Janet) and Neil (Rita). He grew up on the farm near Scott, Sk. He was a true prairie boy at heart.

Dennis had a love for tinkering; a passion for people; found joy in the simple things in life and was a jokester at heart. He loved his family more than words could say.

Dennis had many talents and would be rightly characterized as a true “handyman”. He worked for over 40 years in a profession that he loved. He started with Otis Elevator as an Elevator Technician. He then went on to open his own business – Delainey Elevator Service Inc.

We will be hosting a celebration of life at Windsor Chapel – 704 Windsor Street, Saskatoon Sask. on Saturday October 5th at 11:00AM. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the St. Joseph’s Carmel Hospice in Medicine Hat, Alberta.

    We were so sorry to hear that Dennis passed away. He was quite the character. Always a smile or a joking attitude. It was an honour to know him. Our sympathies.

    DAD::: I know this time would come and I am typing this because I'll probably freeze up not able to talk. Well i appreciate all who came ,dads family and friends to celebrate his life journey. Just a few things about my dad I'd like to say ,he was always a good father teaching us all necessities of life,from his younger days like all the cars he had fixing to running the lawn mower on water,which h didnt end up working. not all the best choices like opening the radiator cap to the Cadillac and getting scalded by the hot steam.even in all his things I looked up to him, he was there to help anyone.i never told him enough how much i love and appreciate him.he was a grandparent to yzabel and gavin and even not knowing them for long yzabel was like where's grandpa I miss him made me I pray he knows .always loved and will be in my heart forever,now dad you are in a better place with your mom and dad .and all of our fathers lord jesus .may you be happy .

    Dennis was a wonderful guy. He did love his jokes and pranks. We all had our beds short-sheeted at least once!
    We will miss him so much.
