FENNELL, Desmond Bartlett

It’s with great sadness to announce that “Des” lost his valiant battle to kidney disease February 7th, 2011 at Ridge Meadows Hospital, with his family by his side. He’s survived by his wife Helen, daughter Anne (Bruce), sons Scott and Dru (Heidi), daughter-in-law Donna, his four grandchildren Mackenzie, Luke, Shane and Heath and his great grand- children Brock & Leighton. Des worked for 35 years at the CNR in Saskatoon, Sask. He was a W.W.ll veteran, and was an active member of the Maple Ridge Legion and of the Vancouver Navy “Discovery.” He was loved by his family and will be sadly missed by his friends. A memorial will be held at the M.R. Legion on March 5th, 2011 at 2 p.m. Rev. R. Bott will be officiating. In lieu of flowers, we’d appreciate, in Des’s name, donations to the kidney foundation. We’d like to specially thank Sharon Dodds, Joan Lear, Neil McLean & Larry Harrison for being there and all their help in our time of need.
