Condolences for the family may be left at

In 1971, he married Rose Douglas from Big Fork, Minnesota. From this union, three sons were born: Troy Allan, Dennis Olaf and Brian Richard. They were later divorced.

Jerry Dennis enjoyed hunting and fishing, and frequently helped out at the Governor’s cup Walleye Tournaments in Fort Peck. He enjoyed riding his Harley, and I was told that he had around 80,000 miles on one of them. He was also quite the wood worker. He made the most beautiful clocks, many of which are displayed in our homes.

He spent 27 years in the military, 3 years active duty, and then in the National Guard. He retired from the Montana Army National Guard as a Staff Sergeant in 1995.

He is survived by his three sons: Troy, Dennis and Brian; two grandchildren: Vincen (Karissa) Norheim and Nathan Norheim; two great grandchildren: Aiden and Bentley Norheim; sisters Darlene (Don) Schmidt of Fairfield, MT and Gail Winterhalter of Helena, MT; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers: Kenneth Norheim and Dale Norheim, and his sister Alberta Blanton.
