Condolence From: Dixie Dilts
Condolence: I can't begin to imagine the loss each of you are feeling.
I met Dennis through work and always enjoyed his visits to our department - some humour, some great stories (especially about Hawaii), and of course the help in purchasing and repairing our home computer.
My deepest sympathy to each family member.
Sincerely, Dixie Dilts

Condolence From: Roger Bouchard
Condolence: I did not know Dennis well, but the times I met with him regarding work items led me to respect his knowledge and opinions. He was always ready to assist however he could and demonstrated that to our family by managing to sort out the mess, of our home computer one evening, which was no small feat. The wonderful tributes to him are no surprise to us. He will be missed. To Dennis's family on behalf of my family, I wish to extend my deepest regrets at your loss.

Condolence: Everyone that had an opportunity to know Dennis will certainly miss him. Always helpful, always with a big smile. I didn't know Dennis well outside of a work relationship but from reading the tributes written to date, it is very much my loss not to have known him better.
Know that our Lord and Savoir is waiting for Dennis with open arms.

Condolence: TO: DENNIS
FROM: TYLER KEY

I remember the first time we drove the quads, it was really fun!
We drove them for so long! Then when I wanted to go again you let me shoot your sling shot and I tried to hit objects. I had so much fun when everyone comes to the garage and we talk and tell stories and work on things like mechanics. We also had so much fun when we had fires at your house and roasted hot dogs and marsh mellows.

You always helped me with my bike, rails, jumps and what ever needs to be fixed or built.

You were always nice to me DENNIS!!!!

Condolence: I knew Dennis when I worked at The City years ago. I first met him as he was the IT guy who I would call often for help. Then I bought a computer from him and used to take it to his house in Springbrook when I had problems. He was always willing to help (as long as I brought a case of beer :-). We had a lot of laughs. Dennis was the nicest guy with such a great sense of humor. He always had time to help you and explain the answers to all your questions. I can't believe he is gone so young. He was a really special person and I know every life he touched was affected. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Condolence: Dennis:
I met you that first day in 1994. This big burly guy with the big brown eyes that started working at the City. I wondered what kind of man you were. It didn?t take me long to know. I can remember the day like it was yesterday, you and I walking out to our cars, me pregnant with Tyler. I slipped on the sidewalk and you caught me before I could hit the ground. Such was the indication of the kind of man that had walked into my life. We quickly became friends, you and I working so closely together. Working overtime with you was never work; we?d start off our days eating Rotten Ronnie?s, and work until it was done. I realize now how much I enjoyed those weekends.

Before I knew it, I had become ?One of the Guys?. In hindsight ? what a great honor that was! The casual cocktails on my Veranda, our weekly golf games, those Rebels games that turned into pool games into the wee hours of the mornings. You always giving me a pair of your socks because my feet were cold in your basement. Mostly I treasure our weekly visits to the Big League. I think we kept them in business, you and I, stopping after work, playing Race Cars Games (which I usually won :-), and Golden Tee golf (you usually won - watching you hit that roller ball so hard that you?d rap your knuckles on the glass repeatedly). We had such great conversations there over cocktails and dinner (you with Pizza always easy on the sauce), about everything you could think of, life, love, family, work, kids, you name it. You were such a great listener.

You were so wonderful with my boys ? especially Tyler, since I think you related your mischievousness to his. You always involved him in your Garage activities, helping him with his bike, taking him for Quad rides, lending your video games, and always having mints for him when he?d visit. I know I?d get the phone call from your house, and it?d be Tyler, saying ? ?Mom - I?m just down at Dennis?s house?. He misses you!

Who would I call when my car broke down at 7:00 am on my way to work, when I needed another muffin tin, spaghetti sauce, Tupperware or just someone to chat with. It was always you Dennis!

The thing about you Dennis was that every time I saw you, your face lit up with this huge smile! I never felt as good as I did wondering down to your garage or dropping in for coffee or a beer, and you saying ?Hey good looking? at every greeting with that big smile of yours. I so wish I could see it again, and I know when I do, it will be as big and bright as ever!

Much love Dennis.

Condolence From: Bev Birch
Condolence: To the Uchytil family,
It is with a very heavy heart I write this. I want to extend my most sincere sympathy to you. I have known Dennis since he began work at the City. He started out as a coworker but very quickly became one of my closest friends. I have many, many fond memories of him that I will cherish forever. Dennis was a big man with a big heart. When I moved to Springbrook he was so kind to me. He would come and help me at the drop of a hat. One time I was trying to fix my bathroom faucet and of course ended up with water spraying everywhere. I was standing in the bathroom trying to bail it out and my then 10 year old son Adam called Dennis. Come quick, Mom?s in trouble he said. Dennis was there in a flash, turned the water off and gave me a lecture about calling 1-800-DENNIS. I told him I didn?t want to take advantage of him calling him every time I needed something done. He said as long as I took him chocolate chip cookies when I was baking we would be even. Dennis got a lot of cookies from me.
Rod and Carol, do you know that for the 1st few years I knew him I didn?t know you had names. He always called you Little Brother and Little Sister. It was very endearing.
He was fun. He had a knack for putting his foot in his mouth and then we would tease him. One particular time I can think of is Lori from work came in with some candy. Dennis said to our manager ?Dale, you knock Lori down
and I?ll grab her goodies!? We teased him about that for a long time!
When I was having problems with my teens he would always listen and offer advice, I always tried to be a shoulder for him as well. We had bbq?s together, we had hot tub parties together, we watched the air shows together. We even watched the Rebels win the Memorial Cup. Some of the best times we had were around the campfire at Scott and Linda?s. But we made a pact that what goes on at the campfire stays at the campfire! When he was at work we had lunch together and played yahtzee just about every day
He was a good friend and I hope he knew how many people cared about him. No one met Dennis that didn?t like him. How many people leave that as a legacy? I am very sad that he is gone. I will miss him forever.

Condolence: I knew Dennis for awhile at a time in my life when I needed a smile. Everytime he came into the place where I worked he always had good things to say and never complained of anything. He was a wonderfull person who tried to get me to see the differece between wide screen and not wide screen, i still don't see the big deal. He will be missed by many but also remembered by lots. My heart goes out to the family. He was truly a nice person, and there aren't many of them around.

Condolence From: Rodney Uchytil
Condolence: I am deeply saddened that my big brother has passed away at only 47 years old. He was my big brother in every aspect, but was also my close friend. I have been living away from Red Deer for many years and Dennis has always been there for me to share my life with. We spoke every week or two, sometimes for hours. As with many people, Dennis was also there always to offer help when I needed it. This was especially true with computer problems and he helped me by long distance and different time zones when I had to call him from Venezuela, Indonesia and Russia.
My fondest recent memories are those of visiting him at his home with my family, and experiencing the love he showed to my wife and children. He was a favorite uncle with a unique sense of humor and a tell tale smile. He taught my son how to ride a quad, and watched him with binoculars and a walk talkie to ensure he was safe. Tony would sleep over at his house and they would play video games until the late hours, watch movies, and act like a couple of kids (pull my finger). In reality, Dennis was a big kid at heart and could relate very well with all children. Shandra and Carine both thought the world of Dennis, even though they had only known him for a few years.
When I was young, Dennis and I went to Calling Lake one summer with my dad and grandpa in a camper. It was a boy?s only trip. We spent many days fishing and camping and driving the ultimate quad that was called a Crab. It stood about 9 feet tall.
When traveling home I had learned how to sharpen my hunting knife and my brother asked me if it was sharp. I touched it to the back of his hand and instantly drew blood. He had a mark for life and I was now sure that I had succeeded in sharpening the knife adequately (I was about 8 or 9 at the time).
When I was being bullied, Dennis was not one to shy away from sticking up for his little brother. We had boxing gloves as children and I learned a couple of lessons as well.
When I hit High School, Dennis seemed more like a friend than a brother. For some reason, I always wanted to do better than him. I guess that is brotherly competition. I ended up studying classes mainly because he had done the same. However, he had an apartment where I could crash whenever I needed. Many a game of risk or Uker were started at 6am. We worked on cars together and I drove his Honda CBX to Leslieville to work 1 summer. This bike was fast and we both had many a close call. He did not have such good luck with cars. I lent him my Trans Am one weekend while I borrowed his truck, and when I came home it was covered with dust and the engine was knocking. It turns out there were some good times had in Delburne, but the car did not survive.
As I entered college, Dennis helped me move apartments every summer. I think he was happy when I actually managed to rent a ground floor apartment in Edmonton, but this quickly faded when I rented a 4 story walk up in Calgary. The boxes of record albums and the hide a bed were absolute killers on the stairs. This continued even into my married life. Dennis took care of my family while my wife gave birth to our son and he repeated a lesson to Shandra that he had earlier in life taught to my sister. He is a big man, but can run quick in the snow in his socks.
Dennis lived a simple life but loved his toys, especially anything with 4 wheels or a circuit board. He loved the outdoors, camping and telling stories with his friends. Dennis was always there for me, my sister and his friends. He took me to my first rock concert (Kiss 1977), taught me how to drive a truck backwards (mom could only teach me how to drive forwards), taught me how to drive a motorcycle, and taught me a lot about life.
I will dearly miss my brother. The love between brothers is very special and I know I will see him again someday when my time comes.
