On Friday, September 10, 2021, Dennis Peery, loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and brother, passed away at the age of 75.
Dennis was born on September 30, 1945 in Warsaw, Missouri to Hattie Opal and Emitt Alvin Peery. Dennis graduated from Tonasket High School. Dennis began his successful 41 year career in Commercial Aerospace, at the Boeing Company, on March 15, 1965. He was the lead flight line technician ensuring each jet was delivered to the various Customers with the expected structural quality and pride of the Boeing Company. Dad retired from the Boeing Company in 2006.
Dad married the love of his life, his soulmate Patricia on March 21, 1976, in Renton, Washington. Dad and Mom worked side by side to accomplish their dreams. Dad worked at Boeing during the day and worked with Mom in the evening, managing several rental properties. Dad and Mom enjoyed their vacations together, weekend outings with the family jet skiing on Lake Washington, and Sunday drives in his truck or convertibles. In his final years, Dad and Mom resided in Graham, Washington, where Dad enjoyed his view across the farmland of Mt. Rainer bringing back the memories of his hunting days. You would find Dad outside tending to his tomato plants.
Dad enjoyed fishing, hunting with his brother Donnie, and teaching his daughters how to bait a hook, hiking, ride motorcycles or play softball. Dad loved spending time with his grandchildren teaching his grandson David how to ride his first motorcycle or dancing with his grand daughters, watching their dance routines by the campfire and videos of his great children.

Dad, we will all be together again sharing stories and laughter in Heaven.
