Ralph "Dennis" Remund
Jan. 16, 1944-Dec. 30, 2022
Dennis Remund passed away peacefully in his sleep, surrounded by his family on December 30, 2022. He was raised in Oakland, CA and graduated from St. Elizabeth’s High School in 1962. He married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Jeanne Silva in 1964. They relocated to Castro Valley for a few short years then settled in their forever home in Pleasanton, CA where they raised four children together.
Dennis was a well respected plumber who worked on many landmark projects throughout the Bay Area. He was a Local 444 which merged with Local 342 union member who worked for only two employers for the duration of his career before his well-deserved retirement.
Dennis enjoyed camping and boating with his wife and family. He created lasting memories at numerous California recreational lakes including his favorite, Lake Shasta where they vacationed every summer for over 30 years. He loved sports, specifically baseball and football and was a die hard Green Bay Packers fan. Dennis was a talented craftsman who enjoyed woodworking in his spare time.
He was a known practical joker. He loved creating gag gifts for family during the holidays and wrapping them in creative packages, if Dennis picked your name out of the hat, you were in for a humorous surprise!
He was a loving husband, dedicated father and an adored “Papa”. He was a faithful friend to everyone he knew and went out of his way to help anyone in need. He will be remembered for his genuine kindness and his fantastic sense of humor.
Dennis is survived by his wife Jeanne of more than 58 wonderful years, his daughters Lisa, Kris and Katy, his son Vince and his ten grandchildren, Alyssa, Trevor, Ali, Tori, Madi, Jenna, Kayla, Paige, Emily and Olivia.
