November 4, 1955 — December 21, 2012

Dennis Way
Dennis Jay Way, son of Elmer Dean and Dorene Kathryn (Gooseman) Way, was born on November 4, 1955 in David City, Nebraska. He attended school at Champion Grade School and Chase County High School. On December 14, 1974, Dennis was united in marriage to Julie Ann Frosh in Imperial, NE. To this union, he was blessed with 2 children, Shawnna and Kevin. Over the years, some of his employers were Imperial Ford New Holland, Schrotberger Trucking, Gary Sporhase Trucking, Midnight Express, and Stromberger Farms. Other business adventures are Way/Nichols Feed Store, and owner/operator of other trucks.
Dennis's love for trucks led to his profession as an owner/operator of Way Trucking. He loved working on trucks, working on go karts for his grandkids, camping, fishing, and apparently a little bit of drawing these last few months. In October 2011, Dennis and Kevin bought a 1990 Peterbuilt cab-over. Due to his health, he didn't get to drive the truck he always wanted for very long, but he gave it his best.
On December 21, 2012, Dennis passed away while in his sleep after being diagnosed a short time ago with renal (kidney) failure. He was 57 years of age.
