    Fordman's Profile:

    Dearborn, Michigan

    May 3, 1946 – Jun 20, 2019

    Entered into rest on June 20, 2019. Age 73. Beloved husband of Cathleen for 51 years. Loving father of Bryan, Rebecca and Jennifer. Dearest grandfather of Rachelyn, Alison, Anthony, Stevie, Charlie and great-grandfather of Ariella and Vincent. Dennis proudly served in the United States Army and later retired from the Ford Motor Company. In his spare time Dennis could be found bowling at Ford Lanes, trying for that perfect 300 game which he obtained numerous times. He also enjoyed watching sports, especially a good football or baseball game. He enjoyed relaxing in his recliner while watching a good show and also working on computers. Dennis will be remembered for his great humor, his witty comments, his corny dad jokes and especially the absolute love that he had for his entire family. A memorial gathering will be Tuesday, June 25th from 12-9 p.m. at the Dearborn Chapel of the Howe-Peterson Funeral Home, 22546 Michigan Ave.

    Thank you for posting this. A few of us were talking just the other day about senior bowlers who just stop showing up and no one really knows what happened to them. May he rest in peace.
