Dennis LaFave of Seattle, WA passed away at Northwest Hospital in Seattle on Sunday, July 30, 2017, at the age of 83. Dennis was born to Eugene and Olinda (Odenbach) LaFave September 2, 1933, in Fairfax, SD. In 1942 the family moved to a ranch near Draper, SD, and in 1945 to a farm near Onida, SD. He worked for the ASC US Department of Agriculture part-time as a junior in high school and full-time after graduating from Onida High School in 1951. In 1954 he married Lorna Stevens of Page, NE, and together they raised two children Lynne and Martin. In 1968, after his government job was eliminated, the family moved to Seattle, WA. He became a US Postal Service letter carrier. He retired in 1990, but remained active in the letter carriers' local union. Dennis was a devoted husband, loving father and grandfather. He is survived by his wife, Lorna, daughter Lynne of Bothell, WA, son Marty of Shoreline, WA, granddaughter Stephenie Spencer of Bothell, WA, sister Belva Wood (Clovis) of North Little Rock, AR, brother Eldon LaFave (Lilia) of Pierre, SD, along with loving in-laws, nieces, and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers Wayne LaFave and Lonnie LaFave. He will be greatly missed by family, friends, and all who knew him. At Dennis' request there will be no service.

Lorna, SO SAD to hear about Dennis! Jack Hayes told us a little at the recent Branch 79 meeting. Many others shared memories of Dennis, too. I remember him from when I started coming around in 1991. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and with a great sense of humor. And I always admired his expertly trimmed mustache. He contributed greatly to Branch 79 and the Retired Club for MANY years. He will be greatly missed! Blessings to you and the rest of your family. Chris Larsen
