SCHWEITZER: Dennis Emerson "Bear" - passed away peacefully on Sunday May 16, 2021 at Freeport Hospital, Kitchener in his 66th year.

Beloved husband of Tina (Yule) who predeceased him April 16, 2008. Dear father of Jennifer and husband Ben Mastervick of Kitchener. Remembered by his sister Sheila and husband Andy St. Amour of Kitchener and brother-in-law Carl Doerbecker of Kitchener and by his many nieces and nephews.

Predeceased by his parents Norman (1982) and Malinda (1996) (Becker) Schweitzer, brother Earl and wife Myrtle and sister Ruthann Doerbecker.

Dennis had a big heart and a great sense of humour and had a unique skill for bending exhaust pipes of older automobiles and he will be sadly missed by his co-workers and friends that he met over the 30 years at Meineke Car Care Centers in Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge and Woodstock where he was affectionately known as "Pipe Bender"

Relatives and friends will be received in the Glendinning Funeral Home, 40 William St. N. Plattsville on Thursday, May 20, 2021 from 2-4 and 6-9pm.

I worked with Dennis and he was a loving, caring friend. He always came in early to work so he could chat before the day started. He was a sensitive soul who would do anything for you. We loved Dennis at work and he was loved by a lot of customers. There is a lot of vehicles driving around with custom exhaust that Dennis would do just by eye. He was very talented. He is going to be missed by all of his co-workers over the years and by the many customers whose vehicles he has fixed.
We love you Dennis and you will be missed but not forgotten.
