Condolences for Dennis D. Aspenson



Dear Adam, Mike and I just heard yesterday of the passing of you father, Dennis. We liked him very much. He was always willing to help us when we needed him. He was so unselfish and put himself out when we had such a hard time selling our previous home. He did not have to do that but he made sure that his own subs did the work necessary; and it worked. The house sold fast after that. We will miss him. Every time we see one of your open houses we think we need to go in and see Dennis. (I think we will always feel that way) We also miss your Mom, she painted our house. I think it was one of the last ones she did. We are great believers in heaven, and We know that he and Beth are together again. With great affection to you and your parents, Mike and Sandy Hammes
From Mike and Sandy Hammes


Thank you Dennis for being You unapologetically! You have helped create a beautiful & loving family. I have always appreciated your presence in my life. I adored and loved your wife and daughter and appreciated your acceptance of who I am. I respect ✊ how you showed up in the world and appreciate all of the memories we shared. When Emily lost you as a loved one here on earth, I truly believe that you also became a source that is otherworldly, and became an angel in heaven that watches over her. May you take comfort in knowing that you have an angel to watch over you now. I pray to your presence & love ❤️ most sincere condolences to you! Thanks Dennis — it’s been an absolute blessing getting to share so many epic times together. With love, Always in All ways Neil Ryan Dumra

Dear Family and Friends, I was shocked and deeply saddened to learn that my cousin Dennis had passed. Dennis, his brother David and his Mom and Dad Charm and Everett were large part of some of my best childhood memories. Later in life, in the all too brief time I got to spend with him, his joy of life and amazing sense of humor kept me smiling and laughing 24/7. On behalf of my family and myself please accept our heartfelt condolences on the loss of this much loved person. His memory will always be treasured. Rick Olson

We hold a special place in our hearts for Dennis and miss seeing him around the neighborhood very much. Tom and I liked going to his open houses and just visiting with him whenever we had a chance. We first met Dennis when I moved my mom to Onalaska into one of his condos. He was gracious, caring (and funny!), made sure the place was ready for her and then always asked about her. Our sincere condolences to Adam and all of Dennis' family. He will be missed.
