Joseph D. St. Dennis

Joseph D. St. Dennis passed away at his home in Havre of natural causes after a long and valiant fight with an illness on Monday, Nov. 29, 2010.

Joseph was born in Kalispell, Mont., on July 9, 1962, where he lived for seven years before moving to Alaska and Washington. In Alaska, he met his future wife, Glenda Thelander. During his time in those places, he spent several years as a commercial fisherman and in the logging industry.

He did return to Montana for a few years of his life, but in 1992 he found his way back to Montana where he lived since. Glenda and Joe were married in Montana. He spent some time as a ruff neck on the oil riggs in Montana. After the death of his wife in 2004, Joe found a new love with Dagmar Johnson, his long-time partner and love.

Joe was a man who was easygoing and friendly with a kind heart and eager to help anyone out. He was a very wise man who enjoyed history, reading, fishing, camping, hunting, drums, music, friends, family and his dogs, Max and Butch.

Joe was preceded in death by his grandmothers, Rose E. Keck and Florence St. Dennis; grandfathers, William Shupe and William Keck; wife. Glenda St. Dennis; and brother, Rusty St. Dennis.

Joe is survived by his mother, Essie St. Dennis of Havre, Mont. ; father, Russell St. Dennis of Montana; sister, Jaime St. Dennis of Havre, Mont. ; nieces Jessica (Eric) Schweigert and Shannon St. Dennis, all of Havre, Mont. ; aunts, Toni (Scott) Sward of Bakersfield, Calif., Judy Hendricks, Yvonne St. Dennis, Roxanne Boyer and Mona Pruitt, all of Missoula, Mont., Gaye Taylor of Bellingham, Wash. ; life partner, Dagmar Johnson and her daughters: Jenna and Sammy, all of Havre, Mont. ; half-brother, Donny Stokes of Reno, Nev., and Marvin Smith of Montana; uncles, Scooter Brown and Wayne Brown, both of Washington; Ronnie Smith and Dennis Smith, both of Montana, Norene and Connie both of Montana; one great-niece and several great-nephews and cousins.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p. m., Thursday, Dec. 2, 2010, at the Holland & Bonine Funeral Chapel. Burial will take place in Missoula at a later time. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts in Joseph's honor may be made to the local or any humane society.
