C'est avec un coeur très lourd et rempli de tristesse que nous avons dit :Va avec Dieu, Dennis mon amour et mon ame soeur. Il était mon compagnon de vie et mon meilleur ami, mon confident depuis plus de soixante ans. Son départ, laisse dans le deuil ses trois enfants: Robert, Richard (Alanna) et Renelle, ses sept petits-enfants Nathan, Melanie, Brittany, Jasmine, Audrey, Troy et Chad ainsi qu"une arrière petite-fille Amber. Il laisse aussi son frère jumeau Donald (Iona ) avec qui avait , au fil des ans, partagé sa vie, ses confidences, et ses loisirs.Il laisse derrière lui de nombreux neveux et nièces et plusieurs amis.
Dennis est né à Williamstown le 17 novembre 1936, fils de Germaine Brunet et David (Bunny) Major. Il est arrivé à Elliot Lake dans les années cinquante et a profité de sa retraite en 1992 après plusieurs années avec Rio Algom. Il était généreux, invitait les gens chaque printemps à son érablière, gardait un sourire et raconter des bonnes histoires. Il aimait la chasse, et la pêche. Il aimait la nature et après sa retraite, s'est porté bénévole pour North Shore Fisheries.

La date du service aura lieu à une date indéterminée. Arrangements funéraires confiés à Alternative Funeral Services.


It's with heavy hearts filled with sadness that we've had to say: Go with God, Dennis, my love. You were my life long companion, my best friend, my confident and my soulmate for these past 60 years. He leaves behind three children Robert, Richard (Alanna) et Renelle, seven grand children Nathan, Melanie, Brittany, Jasmine, Audrey, Troy and Chad, as well as a great grand child Amber. Also mourning his departure is his twin brother Donald (Iona), with whom he shared lifelong adventures, confidences and interests. Saddened by his loss are many nieces and nephews, too numerous to mention and his many friends and colleagues. Dennis was born in Williamstown on the 17th of November, 1936 to Germaine (nee Brunet) and David "Bunny" Major. He arrived in the fifties in the early days of Elliot Lake, and retired from Rio Algom in 1992 after several years of working in the mines. He was a kind hearted and generous soul who loved having people visit his sugar camp he and Donald shared. He had a great sense of humour, and always had a smile on his face. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved being in nature and was a volunteer with North Shore Fisheries after his retirement.
The funeral service date has yet to be determined. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Alternative Funeral Services.
