Brannan, Dennis Leslie MD

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Dennis Leslie Brannan on January 24, 2020 at Joseph Brant Hospital. Dennis is predeceased by his parents Claude and Lilya, siblings Beatrice and Michael as well as his first wife Bonnie. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Johanne (nee Graydon), children Kelly (Ken) Laura (Paul), Cindy and Tim, grandchildren Gregory, Mitchell, Thomas, Beck, Cameron and Isla, along with his nieces, nephews and extended family. Dennis will be remembered for his quick wit, inquisitive mind, love of family & friends and passion for the outdoors, sailing and cottaging in Haliburton. He had many accomplishments throughout his life. He was a proud Western medical school grad, Chief of Staff at Joseph Brant Hospital and coroner for 10 years. A devoted family physician for 40 years, from life to death, through good times and sad, he truly cared for the many families in his Burlington practice. Please join us in celebration of a life well lived at Port Nelson United Church (3132 South Dr, Burlington, ON) at 2 p.m. on Wednesday January 29, 2020. A reception will follow at the church hall. For those who wish, donations in memory of Dennis to Joseph Brant Hospital would be sincerely appreciated by Dennis and his family.

I was so sorry to hear of Dennis’s passing. He was our family physician from 1967 until his retirement. He was always available when we needed him. He delivered all 3 of our children and saw us through many illnesses

Our sympathy goes out to Johanne and family. Dennis was the only doctor we knew for so many years. We trusted his advice and care and felt comfort with his handling a good number of our illnesses. He listened to our issues and guided us to health so many times. Because of current illness, we cannot attend the celebration of life on January 29. We will always remember him as our doctor.

We remember the trips Denny would continue to make to Leamington to visit with the family here. We all were very appreciative, especially my mother and father when he would bring Timmy.

I was deeply saddened this morning to see Dr. Brannan’s smiling face when I opened The Spectator on my computer. I am so sorry for your loss. I know that Dr. Brannan was very important In many lives. Dr. Brannan(as he will always be to me) came into my life when I was 13 and he was starting his practice. How fortunate for me, he was able to guide me through my teens, take on my husband as a patient, deliver our 3 children and provide magnificent care and guidance to all until his retirement. We were sad when he retired, but understood. He was always there for my family and shared in our joy and sorrow. To say that he went above and beyond the call of duty many a time, would be an understatement. I feel blessed that he was a part of my life. Please accept my condolences on your loss and know that Dennis will live on in your heart, and the hearts of those he touched.
With deepest sympathy. Liz Beaudoin
