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.
