Lynn Aaron Dennison, 78, left with the angels on August 5, 2019 at his home in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He had lovingly been cared for by his wife, Carolyn, granddaughter, Kayla Wilcox, friend, Diane Hayden, and the team at Interim Hospice.

He was born March 31, 1941 in Livingston, Montana to Bob and Lois (Ross) Dennison.
