August 5, 1947 – Winnipeg, MB
December 6, 2013 – Calgary, AB
On Friday, December 6, 2013, the world lost a kind and generous soul, a true friend who always put others before himself. Dennis Neil Burton passed away after a lengthy struggle with cancer at the age of 66 years.
Dennis lived most his life in Calgary where he has many friends in the arts community. He started an underground radio station called Radio Cora in 1974, which later became Radio Radio 104.5 cable FM. It lives on as internet radio. He lived a full life with many interests and could entertain with conversation on any topic. He loved England and all things British. He built and raced slot cars. He loved women, and he loved music. His passion for building great audio systems and his dedication to radio, competed with a quest for the perfect cup of coffee.
Dennis is survived by his brothers Dave (Joanne) and Rob, and his sisters Margaret, Madeline (Jeffrey) and Glenda; and was predeceased by his parents Dave and Gladys. He will be warmly remembered by his family and many friends.
A Celebration of Dennis’ Life will be held at a later date. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
