Dennis Robert Ruttan

January 20, 1947 – July 1, 2022
In loving memory ~
Surrounded by his family, Dennis lost his battle to Lewy Body Dementia. He loved being a trucker and wrote many stories through the eyes of his little dog “Jake the Trucker”. It has been said he was a true legend and icon in the trucking industry.
Dennis is survived by his loving wife Yvonne of 54 years, his sons Dean and Terry and his grandchildren. He will be greatly missed, but in our minds and hearts forever.
The family would like to express our thanks to Dr. M. Ismail for her compassion with Dennis and the truly caring staff at Cerwydden for making his last years as best as possible.
At his request there will be no Celebration of Life. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to your favorite charity.
“Don’t Forget to Keep Them Shiny Side Up”
