Dennis Dean Compton, passed away March 27, 2023, in Great Falls, MT. Dennis was born to Duane and Shirley Compton in Great Falls, MT on May 11, 1957.

He met the love of his life Carla in 1980 and took on the role of Dad to her two children, Amanda and Nathan. Dennis loved being a grandpa to his only grandson, Hunter.
