Mr. Denis Philip Joseph Dagenais January 4, 1947 - December 10, 2008 DAGENAIS – It is with great sadness that our father and husband, Denis Dagenais had passed away quietly with his family by his side on Wednesday, December 10th, 2008 from a short battle with cancer. Denis was born on Saturday, January 4th, 1947 in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, to Ray and Irene Dagenais who had residence in rural Marcelin, Saskatchewan, where Denis was raised. Denis joined the Royal Canadian Air Force on April 5th, 1965, and trained in the electronics field in Clinton, Ontario where he met Linda (Moodie) his wife of 42 years. Together with many assignments within Canada, raised two children, son Anthony Dagenais of Edmonton and daughter Leisa Dagenais and had 3 grandsons, Steven, Daniel and Jonathan Allan, all from Saskatoon. Upon retirement from the military in 1975, he continued his work in the Electronics and Technologist field with the natural resource industry. Although he greatly enjoyed his work, he especially enjoyed golf, fishing, woodworking, boating, including membership with the Loyal Order of Elks, and a Commanding Officer with 221 (Watrous, Saskatchewan) Air Cadet Squadron. He was predeceased by his grandparents Herve and Antoinette Dagenais, Albert and Roseanna Verreault; father Raymond Dagenais; his wife’s parents Stewart and Margaret Moodie; brothers-in-law Frank Gerich, Gordon Moodie and many aunts and uncles.

Denis has had a fruitful and productive life, living it to its fullest and family and friends can attest to his character and demeanor; a gentle giant with a big heart who always had time for his family as a brother, dedicated husband, father, and especially for his grandsons. He never half heartedly attemped any task he had set his mind to.
