Remembering Kevin Arin Dennis

Kevin Arin Dennis was born in Coos Bay, Oregon June 7, 1963.  He passed away last month on June 26th, 2014.  He is survived by his sisters, Micki and Melissa, many aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, and in-laws from across the country.

When remembering Kevin, we are struck by his great sense of wonder and curiosity, his love of everything Country and his passion for strumming the guitar and singing.  He loved to go camping and provide campfire entertainment with his guitar.  He was also a great fan of wrestling and scary movies.

He loved going to work at Tualatin Valley Workshop and the sense of purpose and responsibility it gave him.  He learned to ride the Tri Met bus to work and was proud of his independence.

He also loved participating in Special Olympics and tried several sports before finding his passion in bowling.

When Kevin was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and could no longer work at Tualatin Valley Workshop, he started going to Imagine Possibilities full time. He loved the staff and other participants and being a part of the program.

Mr. Kevin Arin Dennis touched many lives and will continue to touch many more through the memories of his laughter, love and endless hugs.

Take moment to watch the video that remembers him and the beautiful life he lived.

Kevin Arin Dennis
