Dennis Nate, beloved husband of Leah Nate of Calgary, passed away on Saturday, August 30, 2014 at the age of 90 years.
Dennis retired in 1988 from the City of Calgary Transit System as Shop Foreman at the Northeast branch. He loved going to the casino, especially Las Vegas and Jackpot Nevada. In his own words, “I was pretty lucky.” As well, he had a love for wood working and built many a crafty piece still enjoyed by his family and friends. Originally from the Wrentham/Warner area in Southern Alberta, Dennis always had a love for farming and horses.
Dennis will be lovingly remembered by Leah, his wife of sixty-seven years; his sons, Byron (Marlene) of Kelowna, BC and Gordon (Yvonne) of Calgary; grandchildren, Devin (Jennifer), Jason (Sarah), Dana (Cristian), and Terry (Candice); and his sister Fay Kuzmar; and numerous nieces and nephews.
