SALEM - Dennis Relaford died October 23 at the VA Hospital in Portland, Oregon after a 4 month battle with cancer. He was born in Fairbanks, Alaska. Upon graduating from Lakes High School in South Tacoma, he joined the US Navy and became a 20 year veteran.

Dennis is survived by his mother Rosemary Relaford, brothers Jim and Ron Relaford, sisters Shannon Relaford and Annie Simpkins, uncle and aunt Charlie and Carol Berry. He is also survived by children Kevin Relaford, Heather Zelazowski and wife Jayne Relaford of Oak Harbor, Washington, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
