Dennis Thibeau, 72, of The Villages, Florida formerly of Crestview and Orlando died unexpectedly on Saturday, October 1, 2022. He was born on October 21, 1949 in Biddeford, Maine and grew up in Pine Point and Old Orchard Beach.

He was a proud veteran of The United States Air force and moved to Florida in 1968. He graduated from Valencia College in Orlando with a degree in Engineering Technology. Dennis was a 4th degree member of the Knights of Columbus Council 7968 having held several positions including Faithful Navigator. During his tenure with Council 7968 he won an award for his work on the Council’s Newsletter for the best in the state of Florida.

Ever the jokester, Dennis delighted in putting smiles on the faces of friends and strangers and could often be heard making “Goofy” noises. In addition to his well-known sense of humor he was equally skilled in the kitchen. Dennis shared his passion for food and cooking with his family, friends, church, etc. and he was especially known for his cheese grits and “Maine style” tartar sauce.

He is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Julienne Thibeau; son, Mark Thibeau (Erika); brothers, William Thibeau and Joe Thibeau; granddaughters, Regina and Olive Rose Thibeau; grandson, August Bankerd; many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Peter Thibeau; sisters, Madeline Blaisdell-Thibeau and Lorraine Thibeau; parents Olive Rose and William Neal Thibeau.

Dennis had strong faith and loved God. He was a member of St. Mark The Evangelist in The Villages, FL.

    It is hard to believe our friend for over 50 years has gone afore us! I am daily reminded of him by the gifts he gave us every time Julie and Dennis visited. Won’t be the same without him. There truly was only one Dennis T and Larry and I were lucky to get to know him. I bet he stopped by the Rainbow Ridge and picked up all those dogs he shared with Julie. One happy pack of pups with him in heaven! See you soon and I bet you’ll find us later have a lot to tell us about Gods home. Love Kim your best friends wife.

    Julie, my heart breaks for you and your family. I enjoyed our conversations on Facebook so much. I also appreciated when he stopped by my work at Portland Volvo to say hello when visiting Maine. He will be missed by all who knew him.

    Dennis would pull into our driveway with his car stereo system so loud that our house would shake and wait for Dale and me to come out. Then we would go into our house and have a schnort of peanut butter whiskey or Peaden Moonshine.

    Dennis loved to make us laugh.

    We miss him.

    Love, Dale and Nancy Piedlow
