DENNIS JAMES BRANSON
April 28, 1957 to June 21, 2022
With deep sorrow for dreams left unfulfilled, the Branson family announces the passing of Dennis James Branson on June 21st. Dennis passed away unexpectedly, at the young age of 65, at the family home on Salt Spring Island. He was predeceased by his father, Cecil O.D. Branson, Q.C in 2015. Dennis leaves behind his mother June Branson of Salt Spring Island, son James Branson of Ontario (Amanda and their family), daughter Jasmine Purpura (Joey and their family), sister Leslie Goldammer and nephews Chris and Kyle Goldammer of Kelowna, his extended family of aunts and cousins (the Willis Clan) and his fiancé Sosima Inolino of the Philippines.
Dennis grew up in Victoria and following in the footsteps of his dad attended St. Michaels University School, then just known as University School. He loved the ocean, dogs, boats and loved to scuba dive and sail as a young man. Dennis lived in Ontario for years before returning to Kelowna BC. His dream was to live out his retirement on a beach in the Philippines with Sosima.
At his request, Dennis’ ashes will set sail from Salt Spring Island to the Pacific Ocean.
