Dennis Dale Dellos

December 21, 1950April 24, 2021

Dennis Dellos was born in Worland, Wyoming, 12-21-1950. He was a long-term employee of Dollar Tree, and made many good friends there over the years. He loved the outdoors, where he spent much of his free time sapphire mining and gathering fossils.

He is survived by his three daughters, Tisha, Barbara and Mona, as well as nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. He was a jokester who loved life and enjoyed it to the fullest. He taught his daughters how to embrace the things they loved, something they will pass down to their own children and grandchildren.

A memorial gathering will be held at Ball and Dodd Funeral Home, Friday April 30th at 4pm.

I grew up in Lander, Wyoming with the Dellos family and spent so much time with them that Dennis was my second dad. As the years went by and the miles separated our families, he would still welcome me with open arms like one of his kids, no matter how much time had passed since I'd last seen him. He was a good, kind, funny man with a heart of gold and I'm incredibly grateful I had the chance to know him. Rest easy, dad. Give Lynn a hug for me.

So sorry to the family of Dennis. I had the pleasure of working with Dennis during my Dollar Tree years in Coeur d Alene, Idaho. Dennis was my District Manager and I can not speak more highly as to how he treated me and my staff on his visits. He was very understanding and helpful whenever we had any issues to address at the store and handled those issues with professionalism. Again, so sorry to hear of his passing as a lot of his friends will remember him of his joy and kindness

Dennis was my long time boss and friend. I met Dennis in 2000, when I started working at Michael's. He later went to Dollar Tree and shortly after called me up to offer me a position, so I took him up on it in 2004. He has been my boss forever it seems! He always gave me the thumbs-up sign and we both knew we could count on each other! Dennis could be serous but he also was a silly guy...especially when he was store manager at #04220....which he also invited me to transfer to when he became that stores manager. I spent many trips with Dennis traveling to all the other stores to prep for inventories, and even setting up some brand new stores. From Moscow, Pullman, Colville, Sandpoint, Coeurd' Alene, and multiple stores in town...Dennis always took me along to get things done. That's when I really got to know Dennis and we talked about everything. I miss the pranks he would gathering the loose glitter in the bottom of the box and surprise bombing you with it. Or taking the keychain that made animal sounds and playing them over the intercom. I had much respect for him and he showed me the same!!! He enjoyed showing his rocks and gems after he got them cut and was looking forward to learning to cut gems himself! I was so bummed when he got out of management, but I knew he would then have the time to enjoy his hobby. He was a good guy and a good boss! He treated me right and bugged me to get back into management over and over after I had stepped down for a while. I finally did...mainly because he was still having me do some management I gave in...and he was pretty happy. I didn't want all that responsibility, so stressful at times- but Dennis wanted me to have it ...Lol! He would always let me know that I was doing a good job! I learned a lot by working with him all those many years and I am grateful to have known him like I did! He always made me feel that I was appreciated! Dennis will always be considered my favorite boss!

I had the pleasure of working with Dennis for several years. We had similar retail backgrounds and loved to share stories. Dennis truly cared for the people he worked with and had great love for his family. He went out of his way to assist anyone. / anywhere. Dennis was a professional at work and more importantly he was a gentleman who was loved by all. In our conversations it was abundantly clear that he missed his wife and now they are together again.

I started my first job at Dollar Tree in 2008. I saw Dennis here and there but never knew he was a store manager/district manager for the longest time. He was such a sweet, humble guy. Soft spoken but always willing to talk and help out when approached. Retail is difficult and can be stressful but I always appreciated Dennis. His level head and calm attitude was a blessing in that environment and I will always remember him as a role model in the work place. Thank you for everything you taught me, even if you weren't aware of it at the time.
