Obituary |


Dennis Raymond Cowan was born Jan. 14, 1946 and died April 2, 2006. Cowan touched so many lives here in this community through his service and friendship. He was greatly involved in sharing the history of this town with the Historical Society, caring for the cats at the shelter, and helping wherever he could with Hospice. He will be greatly missed, and our community has been blessed because of him. Cowan loved the mountains and trees here in Truckee and wanted nothing more than to live his whole life here. He did that to the fullest to the end. His family and friends love him and will miss him. He is survived by his wife, Jill.
