Dennis Clarence Limin, September 13, 1943 to July 28, 2010 will be forever cherished and fondly remembered by his family: Janet Limin, daughters Dawn Limin and Karen Limin, granddaughters Amber, Taylor, and Ashley, great grandsons Tyson and Austin, brother in law Robin Bystrom, and their extended families, along with his close friends.
Dennis touched the lives of many locals as he spent his life growing up, working, and raising his family in Nanaimo. He was known to be very private and self sufficient, yet forged a great number of incredibly strong, lifelong friendships with those he grew up with, fished and hunted with, and those he worked with as a member of the PPWC for many years during the MB/Harmac era.
His occupation as millwright was well suited. He was a man of many hats, with the talent, skills, ability, and desire to fix almost everything. He welcomed the opportunities to help others needing repairs of any nature – from industrial, mechanical, electronic to personal. He invited everything to be fixed in his ‘office’ – the shop. Dennis was a man of few words, and was a great mentor as he spoke volumes with his actions. He put consideration for his loved ones first, and his incredible tolerance, understanding, strength, character, and wisdom, will always be respected, admired, and appreciated.
Thank you to Dennis’ closest friends who respectfully provided as much support as he allowed and could appreciate, and the wonderful nurses, especially at NRGH ICU. Flowers will be gratefully received, however, if so desired, in keeping with Dennis’ spirit, friends may contribute in his memory to the organization or cause of your choice.
We encourage friends to please organize among yourselves for small gatherings and camaraderie in his remembrance, as in honour and respect of Dennis’ nature, there will be no formal congregation nor service.
