Dennis Erwin’s hallmark 60th birthday was celebrated with the conviction that there are many more birthdays to come. With a mother who is 93, and his father who, at 92, is still working as a Culligan man, longevity is on his side and he is not about to let any grass grow under his feet.
Sometimes Re-Imagining Life is forced on you by life’s circumstances. This was somewhat the case for Dennis after going through a divorce which ultimately was the catalyst for him moving into our neighborhood. Luckily for us, volunteering has been part of Dennis’s life and for two years he reined as president of our neighborhood homeowner’s association exerting an abundance of grace while working with a multitude of personalities and opinions.
After working for CH2M Hill for 34 year, Dennis is filling the encore portion of his life with the passions he had set aside for a number of years. His love of photography resurfaced now that he has the time to devote his attention to this avocation. With the wind as his constant companion, hitting the open road for this avid motorcyclist is almost like heaven. Next on the agenda is exploring Glacier National Park and traveling throughout the Canadian Rockies this summer on his bike. He is a man on the move and I am impressed.
Dennis is a man after my own heart. Not only is he living strong each and every day with his photography, motorcycling and other volunteer activities, but also because his motto for life, is living the Golden Rule. Can you Re-imagine what the world would be like if everyone adopted The Golden Rule as the mantra for their lives? In the words of Louis Armstrong’s song “What A Wonderful World.“
