It is with broken hearts that the family of Dennis announces his unexpected passing on Saturday, July 18, 2020 at the age of 60.

We take great peace knowing he is now reunited with his beloved son Jorden. Dear companion of Monica. Cherished father of James, Jack and Josh. Proud grandpa of Peyten. Son of the late William and Jacqueline. Brother of Thom (Debbie), Gary (Rachel), Brenda (John Veltri), Larry, Richard (late Susan), Terry (Sherry), Billy (Mary) and Robbie (Natalie). Dennis will be missed by many nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.

Our “Middle Man” struggled most of his adult life with addictions and finally lost his battle to this disease. Our “Middle Man” as Dennis loved to refer to himself as, will always be remembered as a kind and generous soul.

A private graveside service will be held.

Memorial donations to the Ken Brown Recovery Home would be greatly appreciated by the family.

Arrangements entrusted to Northwood Funeral Home Cremation and Reception Centre (942 Great Northern Rd, 705-945-7758).

With heavy hearts we say goodbye for now, to our beloved DNA (Dennis Nelson Atkinson).
