Dennis Doryl Martindale of Battle Ground, WA, passed away on March 9, 2014, at the age of 74, surrounded by loved ones. He was born on January 29, 1940 in Oakley, ID to Doryl and Jean Martindale.

Dennis always had a passion for driving trucks - from farm vehicles to semi-trucks. He had his own trucking business for many years before retiring in 2013. He was very active with the Elks Lodge in Battle Ground, and was a charter member (his membership number was 3). He held many offices during his time with the Elks, and was very proud of the work he did there. Dennis was also an accomplished snow skier, enjoying many seasons at Mt. Hood, including several seasons volunteering as a ski host at Timberline.

Dennis is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Camille; his brothers, Alan (Colleen) and Larry; and his sisters, Lindy (Wayne) and Phyl. He also leaves behind his sons, Ronald (Shara), Russell (Patty), Rory (Kristin), Patrick and Eric; his daughters, Julie, Jade (Mark) and Nicole (Gary); as well as 18 grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held Sunday, March 16, 2014 at 1p.m. at the Battle Ground Elks Lodge.
