Former Soldotna resident Dennis Leo Brindley died, Wednesday, June 13, 2007, at his Norman, Okla., home. He was 68.
Memorial services were held at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 16 at the Norman Moose Lodge.
Mr. Brindley was born in Fordland, Mo. in 1939. He moved to Norman in 1946 where he went to school at Noble High. He married Diane Carol Roberts in 1959 and had two children, David and Darin Brindley. They traveled to California to start their life together and ended up in Soldotna in 1966. The family lived there for 29 years.
“Dennis was a great fisherman, though his best fishing was done on the Kenai River in Soldotna. He also loved spending as much time as he could with his grandkids, giving them new experiences and being the joy in their lives. He was a good mentor, a devoted husband, loving parent, grandparent, and a best friend. He will be missed by everyone, friends and family alike,” his family.
Mr. Brindley was preceded in death by his mother, Avice Exom Walker Brindley Jensen; father, Vern Brindley; brother, Vern Brindley Jr.; and brother, James “Jim” Brindley.
He is survived by his wife; sons; brother, Richard Brindley and his wife, Rubye; brother, Charles Brindley; and uncle, Leo Walker and his wife, Erma; grandchildren, Rebekah Brindley and Michael Kallberg, Stefanie, and Nathan Brindley; and great-grandchild on the way.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the American Cancer Society.
Arrangments were made by Havenbrook Funeral Home in Norman.
