Dennis Jennings

Dennis Jennings died peacefully Aug. 22, 2016, surrounded by his family, due to complications related to Agent Orange exposure.

He was born in Phillipsburg, Kan., to the late Donald and Agnes Jennings, the first of eight children. The family moved to Seattle and then Kent, Wash., when he was a child. In 1970 was drafted into the U.S. Army and was sent to Vietnam. He was married to Peggy in 1980, they had two children and he worked as a letter carrier for 31 years before retiring.

He loved the outdoors, whether it was fishing for salmon, riding motorcycles, camping or hunting. He wanted everyone to experience whatever adventures in life he could provide and, for that reason, most of his nieces, nephews and neighborhood children learned how to drive a car or tractor or ride a motorcycle at a young age.

He is survived by his wife of 37 years Peggy (Erkie) Jennings of Enumclaw; son Zach (wife Lindsay) of Maple Valley; daughter Katie (husband Brent) of Bonney Lake; brothers David and Robert; and sisters Diane, Janet and Penny. He was proceeded in death by sisters Kathy Nurmiko and Sue Jennings of Yelm.

A celebration of his life will include a potluck and will begin at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, at the VFW hall in Enumclaw.

Remembrances can be made to the Disabled American Veterans.
