6.4.15.obit Ueland Dennis

Memorial services for Dennis Ueland were held  Wednesday, June 3. Pastor Mark Taylor officiated at graveside rites with military honors at 11:30 a.m. at the Antelope Creek Cemetery. He died early Thursday morning, May 28; he was 56.
Dennis James Ueland was born June 30, 1958, in Culbertson, the son of Ron and Ann (Oelkers) Ueland. He was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Faith and was a member of the Boy Scouts, attaining the rank of Life Scout. A highlight of his scouting years was when the troop made flat-bottom boats and floated from Wolf Point to the Yellowstone-Missouri confluence, camping along the way.
He was active in sports, chorus and band. The family moved in 1973 to the Ueland farm at Antelope, where he graduated from High School in 1976.
He enlisted in the U.S. Army and spent eight years serving as a helicopter crew chief in Germany and Korea: he served at Camp Casey, the same base in Korea where his father had served, and where his son later served as well. His love for flying continued. He even bought a well-used helicopter in Texas and was planning to restore it to airworthiness ... one of those unfinished lifetime projects.
After his discharge in 1983 and a couple of years later, he went to the Phoenix Institute of Technology and earned an associate degree in architectural drafting. He worked for several architectural firms before he returned to Montana.
He worked in the agricultural industry, doing everything from farming through the grain elevator, as well as in construction and in the oilfields.
Denny was an awesome artist, starting when he was a child; later with training he developed his skills working in charcoal, pen-and-ink and oils and passed this talent on to his children. Dennis was a friend to many, a man with a big heart, a contagious smile and an infectious laugh. He will be sorely missed.
Denny is survived by his children: Crystal Chase of Cottage Grove, Ore., Curtis of Antelope; and Cammy Harwell of Cottage Grove; three grandchildren; his father, Ron Ueland of Antelope; and sisters Cindy Burton of Antelope, Ginger Ueland of Stevensville and Barbie Ueland of Antelope; and his special lady friend, Deb Ledbetter of Antelope.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Ann, in 2009.
