June 16, 1943 – April 24, 2022
In loving memory ~
It is with great sadness that we announce that Dennis Guelpa passed away peacefully on April 24, 2022 in Courtenay BC at the age of 78. Dad was surrounded to the end by his Son Paul, Daughter Lindsay, and Son-in-Law Ryan. He is predeceased by his daughter Stephanie.
Dennis was born June 16th, 1943 in Prince Rupert BC to Lydia and Oscar Guelpa. Dennis, his brother Keith, and his parents moved to Victoria when ‘the boys’ were children and spent many days and nights hosting friends and enjoying life – in true Italian form.
Dad graduated high school from St Louis College and pursued a Degree in Civil Engineering through Royal Roads and Royal Military College. From 1981 ‘The Guelpas’ called the Comox Valley home and Dad owned and operated Guelpa Construction and later Guelpa Consulting. In his younger years Dennis could be found boating, skiing or playing rugby. He loved nothing more than to be on the water, ski hill or the pitch.
The family would like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude to the Staff of Glacier View Lodge for their kind and patient care over the last few years.
A funeral Service is scheduled for 1:30pm May 14th at Piercy’s Mt. Washington Funeral Home in Courtenay.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Glacier View Lodge in Dad’s name are welcome or buy yourself a scotch and drink a toast to him.
