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, OPP Constable Dave Dennie, who passed away Feb. 13.

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 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.

Insp. Mary Shannon
Detachment Commander, East Algoma OPP
