It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dennis Woods of Calgary at the age of 69 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Dennis worked as a Millwright at the CPR Ogden Shops until his retirement in 1991 and more recently could be seen around western Canada with his M&M Meat Shops companion “Max the Bull”. Dennis touched many lives and will be lovingly remembered as a gentle and hard working man.
He is survived by his beloved wife of forty-six years, Sylvia and their children Jeff (Kerri) Woods and Jackie (Kevin) Gruber; his grandchildren Stephanie, Torri, Tayden and Jordan; his brother Al (Elaine) and family; and numerous extended family and friends. Dennis was predeceased by his grandson Jacee Dennis in 1996.
