Sharon and family, My sincere condolences to you and family. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you at this difficult time. Hadn’t seen Dennis for a few years but the memories in Treherne will remain. Dennis was a great guy and will certainly be missed by many. Sincerely, Heather - Posted by: Heather Swanson (Friend) on: Jan 21, 2023
Dennis was my Office Manager while employed at Canadian Motorways. I found Dennis to be a kind, honest, strong willed and generous manager. Some of my fondest memories are while working at Motorways where the staff was truly appreciated for all their hard work and efforts. Dennis made the days of 9-5 go by peacefully and most of us enjoyed going in to work every day. That was a long time ago, but I can remember it like yesterday. I wish we could have stayed in touch, but with busy lives we just never can find the time which is such a shame. You were a good man Dennis and I will always remember you. - Posted by: BRENDA DOUGLAS (EX CO-WORKER) on: Jan 20, 2023
Our condolences to Sharon and family. We met Dennis through Friday night mixed curling – he was our first skip went we joined the league and enjoyed playing with him. - Posted by: Lesley and Kevin Nakonechny (Friend) on: Jan 16, 2023
We would like to send our deepest condolences to Sharon, Family & Friends. Dennis was always such a fun outgoing guy and man could he chuck those horseshoes ( everyone wanted to be on his team)! We hope you are at peace Dennis. You will be missed our friend ❤️ Corey & Connie Olimb - Posted by: Connie & Corey Olimb (Oasis Neighbors ) on: Jan 15, 2023
Sorry for your sadness. My memories of the Forrest families go back along time ago. - Treherne. I never saw Denis without his infectious smile, nor angry. He was a very young man who loved to tease and enjoyed life. I can’t even imagine how you feel but pleasant memories will I believe linger and remain in your hearts. - Posted by: Moe Mawby (Friend) on: Jan 15, 2023
My condolences Sharon and to your family. I met Dennis through curling, always looked forward to playing him. - Posted by: Val Sumka (Friend ) on: Jan 15, 2023
Norm and Dennis were best Buds. They played in many horseshoe tournaments around Manitoba. Spent hours walking while camping at the Oasis for 30 years. Sometimes their antics got them in trouble a few times. Our kids grew up with The Forrest boys. Dennis was like a favorite uncle and a part of our Family. Enjoyed many suppers together and loud card games. Will miss the guy, but we have many great memories to keep his memory alive in our hearts. R.I.P. dear friend - Posted by: Norm and Sam Fillion (best friends for 42 years.) on: Jan 14, 2023

My condolences to you all. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. Dennis was a good friend for many years and was so funny in his sayings. He will be sadly missed. Great picture of you my friend . God Bless and rest in peace. - Posted by: Beverley Kohut (Friend) on: Jan 14, 2023
We always enjoyed Dennis' company either quadding, having a beverage, or just sitting around telling hunting stories ( having a beverage ) !! He was quite the gentleman, always polite and quite considerate of others. His abilities cannot be understated and his generosity was second to none. Rest in peace Dennis. - Posted by: Bob Crawley (Acquaintance) on: Jan 14, 2023
