Dennis Irving Bedford, 77, entered into rest on February 21, 2015 in Manteca. He was born in New York on September 4, 1937 to Fred and Audrey Bedford. In heaven he joins his adored wife Betty Smith Bedford.
He leaves behind his children, Carol Bedford, Jeff (Donna) Bedford, Daniel (Tanya) Bedford, Jackie Daniels, Marc Richard and Tracy Baumbach (Chad). In addition he has numerous grandchildren and one surviving sibling, Barry Bedford.
Dennis was a United States Veteran, serving his country proudly through the Air Force. He was a longtime resident of Manteca. He owned and operated his own handy man service, and for years built the Santa House that is at the corner of Yosemite and Main. He was always there for those in need especially the many elderly residents of Manteca who could not afford handy man and repair services. He was known to spend days fixing all the little things the elderly needed at no charge. He loved his family dearly and his wife was his everything. He will be remembered and deeply missed.
P.L. Fry is honored to serve the Bedford family. He will be laid to rest privately at WillowBrook Park Cemetery Dunkirk, New York. Dennis’ family kindly request that any monetary contribution be made to WWW. GOFUNDME. COM SEARCH Dennis Bedford.
