Dennis Alfred Saboe

1950 - 2022

Dennis Alfred Saboe

With great sadness, the family of Dennis announces his passing on June 16, 2022, in Whitehorse, Yukon, after his battle with Cancer.

Dennis was born in Edmonton, Alberta, on March 22, 1950. He travelled to Whitehorse, Yukon, in 1974; to assist his sister Janice with opening a Pizza Parlor.

Dennis fell in love with the Yukon, calling Whitehorse his home ever since. An artist at heart, he acquired many inspirations for his art from around the Yukon. He completed many projects during his life in the Yukon.

Dennis is survived by his son Noah; sisters, Wendy (Rick), Janice, Brenda, Diana (Ramon), and Donna; nieces and nephews, Mark, Kim, Julie, Rob, Kirsten, Madison, Raquel, Nicole, and their families; and his extra special friends in the Yukon, Marie-Louise and Manfred. Who were instrumental in caring for Dennis during his illness.

Dennis will be remembered as a “Yukon Character” with numerous friends who will mourn his passing.

A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Sally MacDonald of Whitehorse for her care, kindness, and friendship; the caring and gentle staff at Wind River Hospice in Whitehorse; and the staff and doctors at the Cancer Centre of Vancouver, BC, for their gentle and respectful care of Dennis during his illness.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your favourite charity.


“Death (If I Should Go)” by Joyce Grenfell

If I should go before the rest of you

Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone

Nor when I’m gone speak in a Sunday voice

But be the usual selves that I have known

Weep if you must

Parting is Hell

But life goes on

So sing as well.

    We’ll miss you my dear friend; the Yukon won’t be the same for me without you. All the best and I sure hope you and Michael are having fun out there, somewhere.
