Dennis Carl Andersen Sr., 74, a local native of Ferndale, California, residing in Marion, Oregon, passed away on Aug. 13, 2021.

Dennis loved the outdoors. Whether it was hunting, fishing, or just crackin' a cold one. He had a passion for refurbishing old cars, he loved poker and social nights with his friends, and most of all he loved his family. Some of his most cherished moments came from family reunions. He was stubborn, bullheaded, ornery and sometimes just downright mean, but he had a heart of gold for his closest friends and family.

Dennis was preceded in death by his father Orville Andersen, his mother Lucille Rocha, and his brother Donny Rocha. He left behind his two sons Dennis Andersen Jr. and Jeffrey Andersen, his daughter Dena Andersen, his two step-daughters Amber Barker and Lisa Merrick and his two brothers Bob Andersen and Gene Rocha. He also left behind ten grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and many cousins and great friends.

A celebration of life will be held in his honor at Sequoia Park in Eureka, California, on Saturday, June 25th, 2022 from noon-3 p.m.
