Dennis Alberts, 61, of Pine Haven, died Saturday, July 20, 2013, at the Sundance Hospital in Sundance.
Dennis Anthony Alberts, son of Russell and Mary Catherine (Gross) Alberts, was born Nov. 6, 1951, in Sioux Falls, S.D. Denny grew up in the Monroe/Marion, S.D., area and attended a country school and Marion High School. A man of all trades, he worked in the Sioux Falls area as a carpenter, repairman, HVAC and sales in his early adult years.
On Nov. 29, 1975, he married Georgia Sturdevant and welcomed her three beautiful daughters into his big arms. They started their life together in Lennox, S.D., and a few years later were blessed with two daughters of their own.
In 1981, they moved to Newcastle, where Denny began a 25-year career with True Oil Company. He was rounding out his working life in sales for ESP pumps. Denny was a quiet unassuming man, but never a loner. He formed many close friendships over the years
Denny loved to work, whether he was getting paid or not, and play was his reward. As often as possible, all seven (and later any number of grandchildren) loaded up a camper and boat-pulling pick-up to enjoy a week or weekend in the outdoors with the family, and sometimes meeting friends along the way. Denny shared his love for fishing and camping with all of them, and taught each one how to love these experiences that saw as important to a great life.
The family survivors include his wife, Georgia; children, Amy (Bryan) Martini of Sheridan, Stacey (Jesse) Frank of Spearfish, S.D., Sara (Steven) Hofmann of Spearfish, S.D., Michelle (Ryan) Switzenberg of Sheridan, and Lisa Alberts (Jason Thompson) of Moorcroft; grandchildren, Tyler, Zachary, Riley, Turner, Hallie, Caleb, Olivia, Carli, Jordan, Anna, Colton, Emma, and Marley; one brother, Ron (Mary) Alberts of Parkston, S.D.; one sister, Brenda (Steve) Major of Omaha, Neb.; sister-in-law, Donna Alberts; aunt, Caroline Gross; nephews, Chris (Kimberly) Alberts, Jason (Renee) Alberts, Ben Major; niece, Kimberly (Travis) Lee; mother-in-law, Eleanor Sturdevant; numerous cousins and friends; and last, but certainly not least, his beloved Labrador, Bo.
He is preceded in death by his parents, one brother and an uncle.
