Obituary

            Dennis loved his kids and grandkids beyond belief. He sacrificed so much to provide his children an amazing education and athletic experience. He showed up to every game possible. He always looked forward to breakfast and lunches with his brothers and sisters.

Dennis loved hanging out with his singles connection group: dancing, shooting pool and enjoying great food.

Breanne Kormendy of Chippewa Falls; significant other, Vicki Kressin of Eau Claire; two brothers, Russell (Sharon) Rowan and Tim Rowan both of Chippewa Falls; four sisters, Roberta (Larry) Culbert, Carol (Bill) Shepard, Nancy (Dan) Normand all of Chippewa Falls and Julie (Tarry) Brumfiel of Colorado; and granddaughters, Cora, Raelynn and Skylar Rowan of Monroe, WI.

            Dennis was preceded in death by his parents; and one nephew, Tony Rowan.
