Dennis Walker Scorgie, beloved husband of Kathy (nee Grant), superhero Dad of Denise Scorgie-Henwood and John Henwood, passed away at home on Thursday, May 9, 2019 at the age of 74.
There is not a person who crossed paths with Dennis that wouldn’t tell you he changed their lives for the better.
Besides his loving wife, Kathy; his daughter and son-in-law, Denise and John Henwood; Dennis is survived by a large loving family back home in Aberdeen; his brother, Lewis Scorgie; sisters, Betty Bain and Margaret Scorgie; brother-in-law, Graham Grant and his wife, Isobel; and a large extended family of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. In Calgary, Dennis leaves to mourn; Tom and Stam Henwood, who Dennis loved as his own kids; and his beautiful granddaughter, Rachel Henwood; numerous associates in the car business; and many cherished friends and ‘family’. Dennis was predeceased by his Mum, Isabella (nee Thain); his Da, Lewis Park Scorgie; brother, Leslie; sister, Bella; and his sister, Aileen.
Dites, we met when I was 15 and you were 17. We grew up together for 57 years. You were always the love of my life. The greatest gift you gave to your family was not in never falling, but rising every time you did.
I will love you forever, Kath
