Gone but not forgotten is Dennis Conkins, 75, of Claremore, OK, who slipped away from us unexpectedly February 21, 2021. He was born October 26, 1945 in Logan County, West Virginia. The Son of Oscar and Hazel.
Dennis left high school to continue into the Air Force as a mechanic and found himself in the middle of Vietnam. After the war, he lived life as he wanted. He loved to spend time with family, loved to fish, and always dreamed of “hitting it big” on the lottery.
He is survived by his brother, Robert, his five children, Dennis Jr., Tawnda, Angela, Christy, and Jimmie. His grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews who adored and loved him dearly.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Jim, and sister Judy.
Those who wish to remember Dennis in a special way may send gifts in his memory or attend his service on Tuesday March 2nd, 2021 at 1:00pm at Rice Funeral Service; 631 East Will Rogers Boulevard Claremore, Oklahoma 74017.
