On February 12, 1943 in New Prague, MN parents Marlin and Elva (Gerdes) Fahrenkamp celebrated the birth of their son Dennis. He was the oldest of their seven children to be raised in Prior Lake. Following Dennis’ graduation from Prior Lake, he enlisted in the Navy and proudly served until his honorable discharge.
Dennis’ life was enriched by his family. He was a devoted father, proud grandpa, and friend to many. Later in life, Dennis reconnected with a high school girlfriend, Toni Trulson. Despite the years, they picked up where they left off and were married on February 29, 1984 at a friend’s house on Prior Lake. The couple made their home in Hernando, Mississippi.
Together, Dennis and Toni enjoyed traveling. They took trips across the world—Australia, Bangkok, Hawaii, and annual trips to Seattle and Minnesota to visit family. They enjoyed time at their cabin on the White River in Arkansas as well.
Dennis is loved and missed by his daughters, Jennifer (Denny) Woxen, Kathleen West; son, Troy Fahrenkamp; stepchildren, Kenny Trulson and John Trulson; 5 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren siblings, Donald Fahrenkamp, Jane (Steve) Engle, Susan (Rick) Buckles, and Cindy Hagen; sister-in-law, Becky Fahrenkamp; brother-in-law, Wyatt Reed; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Dennis is greeted in Heaven by his wife Toni; parents, Marlin and Elva; sister, Kathleen Reed; and brother, Jon Fahrenkamp.Print Obituary & Condolences
