Dennis Paul Jahner

Dennis Paul Jahner, 74, was called to Heaven on May 4, 2019. Dennis passed away with loved ones by his side at the VA Hospital Community Living Center in Prescott, Arizona.

Born to Paul and Grace Jahner in Mandan, North Dakota, Dennis was a loving and caring Husband, Father, Brother, Grandfather, and Uncle.

He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Francie; their children, Chanice (Tom) Meland of Minot, North Dakota, Sean (Jin-Do) Jahner of Kent, Washington, and Kelly (Jay) Graski of Las Vegas, Nevada; sister, Lila (Walter) Zachmeier of Mandan, North Dakota; and grandchildren, Taylor Scheuerman, Jaylyn Graski and Sean Jahner, Jr.; and numerous in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Paul and Grace Jahner; and sister, Marvalee Simons.

Dennis was a multi-talented entrepreneur. He was born in Mandan, North Dakota, and raised on the countryside north of Bismarck, North Dakota. He was a 1962 graduate of Bismarck High School in Bismarck, and was a U.S. Air Force veteran. He was then employed by General Telephone and Northwestern Bell Telephone. In 1977 he became a self-employed partner of D&D Construction and owner/operator of A&C Towing in Bismarck. After moving to Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1986, Dennis became owner/developer of Sand Aggregate Landscape and USGA golf course materials and owner/designer of Trikes by DJ, Lehman Trike Conversions in Las Vegas and continuing after moving to Prescott, Arizona, in 2001. He also was partner/owner of Sundog Solar construction of Prescott.

Dennis retired in 2016 to travel, ride his Harley, drive his tractor, volunteer with the DAV transportation, and enjoy all of the fruits of his labor.

Gone too soon. Dennis was diagnosed with liver cancer in late February, 2019 and succumbed to the disease on May 4, 2019.

The spirit and humor Dennis shared with friends, family and anyone around him will be a void that cannot be filled. In this time of great pain and sorrow, we turn to whatever Source there may be for comfort, one day at a time. No amount of human aid can reach the deep inner soul.

Services as follows: Saturday, May 18, 2019, 1 p.m., VA Chapel of the VA Center, 500 Hwy 89, Prescott, Arizona; Honor Guard preceding service at 12:30 p.m.
