Obituary of Dennis Congdon
It is with broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Dennis Edward Congdon on November 29, 2022.
Dennis was born in Daysland on December 29, 1957 to George and Norma Congdon. Dennis lived a very full life and was blessed to experience every dream he had. He left home at age 16 and had numerous oilfield and construction jobs before meeting Carolyn through youth group at the Daysland Alliance Church. Dennis and Carolyn were married April 16, 1983 and lived in Daysland. At this time, he purchased his uncle's corral cleaning company, with several other trucking jobs in the winter.
In the spring of 1987, he purchased a 1986 Peterbilt and worked for Mickla Trucking, Kenny Little and Olynyk Trucking. Dennis was very passionate about trucking and loved to tell everyone trucking stories. Dennis sold the truck in 1992 so he could be home more with his daughter Courtney. In the summer of 1994 Dennis and his family moved out to the Midbo farm where they eventually took over the farm. Dennis and Carolyn worked many years developing a top-quality purebred Red Angus cattle herd. Dennis was a true cow man, had extensive horsemanship skills, and was so knowledgeable about farming. For 19 years, Dennis was Jack Hampshire's right-hand man where he worked on his cattle and grain farm. Eventually in 2020, Dennis and Carolyn decided to slow down, focus on grain farming, and spend as much time as possible with their granddaughter Callie.
Dennis had an infectious personality, laugh, and smile. He loved to spend time drinking coffee and visiting with his many friends and neighbors. Most of all, he loved spending time with his family, especially his granddaughter Callie, his pride and joy.
Dennis is predeceased by his father George Congdon and father-in-law Harald Midbo.
Dennis will be deeply missed by his loving wife of 39 years and best friend Carolyn, his daughter Courtney, her husband Silvan and daughter Callie, his dog Riley, his mother-in-law Edith, brother-in-law Tom and his wife Tanja.
A private service will be held at a later date. Donations in memory of Dennis may be made to the Rosevale Cemetery in Strome.
