Denis (Duke)

1939 – 2014

Mr. Denis Sondrol of Lacombe passed away at Lacombe Community Health Care Centre on Saturday, December 27, 2014 at the age of 75. He was born at Cabri, Saskatchewan on June 1, 1939. He married Johanna Bos on January 30, 1960. Duke started out building houses and barns around Cabri. He moved on to manage Revelstoke Lumber Yard in Cabri. In 1974 he transferred to Lacombe and worked in the Lacombe, Wetaskiwin and Red Deer Revelstoke stores for many years. After his retirement, he enjoyed helping out his friends and family with their many construction projects. His shop was full of every tool you needed to do any project. In the past few years he used his shop to build toys for Santa’s Anonymous, urns for his friends, cupboards for storage, etc. He would do anything for anyone at a drop of a hat. Duke and Jo appreciated the many life-long friends stopping by to visit them in their home. Duke will be lovingly remembered by his children Larry Sondrol (Eileen) of Airdrie, Laura Lee Dick (Bob) of Lacombe, Melinda Wade (Eric) of Red Deer, Rhonda Sondrol (Frank) of London, Ontario and Monique Robitaille of Lacombe; his grandchildren Lacy Foulston (Andrew), Justin Sondrol (Kenzie), Tyson Doonan, Patti Dick, Brittany Dick (Frazer), Brandon Dick (Kayla), Meagan Wade (Nathan), Tea Elle Bos and Allan Zulerons and great-grandchildren Embur, Ollie, Gracie, Braxton and Lily and many nieces and nephews.
