Dennis Herbert Firth was born in Vernal, Utah on July 12, 1956, and passed away on April 28, 2020 in Grand Junction, Colorado.
Son of Boyd Herbert Firth and Dora Oaks, he has three siblings, Drew, Dan, and Connie. He grew up working on the family farm, running a trap line for muskrats, wrestling, and playing baseball.
Shortly after high school, he married Anne Brady and had two children, Jeremy Herbert Firth and Jennifer Anne Firth. Harley motorcycles provided a constant background rumble.
Dennis and Anne divorced and later Dennis married Laura Workman. They had a son named Samuel Dennis Firth.
Dennis was a pipeline welder, working all over the western U.S. He always had a good story or a funny joke (or even a makeshift cannon shot) to share with his friends and co-workers.
Known for his kindness, generosity, and good sense of humor, Dennis touched anyone who met him. He had impeccable timing for calling when you needed someone to talk to, and Dennis's wisdom carried many of his friends and family through difficult challenges.
Dennis has four granddaughters, Caitlind, Miray, Leah, and Sapphira.
A memorial party was held for him in Parachute, Colorado on May 2, 2020.
