'Thank you for your kindness and support'

Friday, February 28, 2014   by: Staff received the following letter from Inspector Mary Shannon, Detachment Commander of the East Algoma OPP, in regards to the passing of Provincial Constable Dave Dennie.

On behalf of the East Algoma Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Detachment, it is with a heavy heart that we are sending this message out in acknowledgement of our fallen member Provincial Constable Dave Dennie who passed away on Thursday, February 13, 2014.

There are very few words that could express how we feel about this tragedy that would comfort those that have been personally impacted by Dave’s passing.  

By all accounts, Dave was a highly respected member of his community and the Ontario Provincial Police who loved life! 

Dave left behind his wife, Karine, and his two young sons, Jonathan and Benjamin.  

Our hearts and sympathies certainly go out to them as they continue forward with their journey.

During this event, we witnessed a community pulling together and perform extraordinary acts of selflessness in order to support the Dennie family and the members of East Algoma OPP Detachment during their time of need.  

To all who helped and supported the family and the members of the OPP, your kindness and caring nature did not go unnoticed and was greatly appreciated by all of us. 

It was truly heart-warming and inspiring!


Inspector Mary Shannon

Detachment Commander
East Algoma OPP

It is nice to hear of a community coming together in support and appreciation for both the immediate and extended family of this fallen officer. I'm sure there are many untold stories of how he came to the aid of others in the performance of his duties as well as his colleagues. (RIP)

Always heart wrenching to hear of a fallen officer or soldier. They put themselves in harms way daily, to protect US! Thank you & God Bless every one of you!
