Funeral services for the late Lionel Harold Dennison were held Tuesday, January 26 at two p.m. from Christ Church Cathedral in Whitehorse. The Rev. Canon Arthur L. Privett officiated, and members of the Masonic Lodge assisted.
Mr. Dennison first came to the Yukon about 1936 and was with the White Pass and Yukon Route until 1946. For some years after that he was in business as a customs broker in Whitehorse until serious illness invalided him.
Mr. and Mrs. Dennison celebrated their silver wedding anniversary last summer when their many friends called to mark the occasion.
He is survived by his widow, Helen "Nellie" Dennison and three brothers: John H. of Vancouver, who came to Whitehorse this week, Thomas B., Prince George, and James A., in Victoria.
Interment was in the Masonic plot at the Whitehorse Cemetery.
