DENNIS ANDREW FAULKNER
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, the family decided to honor Dennis with a private family service on October 5, 2021. Interment followed.
We ask that everyone that knew Dennis remember him with their own memories. We are especially grateful to the St. Boniface Riels and the M.M.J.H.L., knowing that his devotion to them has been memorialized with an annual scholarship in his name.
Dennis was loved by everyone he met, drew people to him with his sense of humor and endless stories. Dennis was so thrilled that he finally got to watch his beloved Blue Bombers win the Grey Cup!
We love and miss you very much.
Born May 22, 1933, to Thomas and Olive Faulkner, in the Manitou area. The family moved to Winnipeg when he was still a youngster, and he spent the rest of his years there, where he touched many lives with his humor and wit.
He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Elva (Bowman), son Ken (Cindy), daughter-in-law Cynthia, three grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his son Wayne, his parents, brother Richard (Barbara), and sister Alice (Dave Ross).
He spent his high school years playing football for the Daniel MacIntyre Maroons championship teams. After high school, he signed a tryout contract with his beloved Blue Bombers. He then coached young football players. He spent over 40 years as a league executive with the MMJHL, a number of those years with the St. Boniface Riels. He is a lifetime member of the MMJHL. As well, he curled for years (Electrical League) and golfed with the St. Bartholomew Church Group and the Manitoba Seniors Golf. Many young children knew him as Santa Claus.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Meadowood Manor or a charity of choice.
