|Donald, Darlene, Dennis - 1950|
Dennis Ray Ohms was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on December 22, 1945 to Raymond Henry Ohms and Helen Arlene Barr Ohms. He was the 4th child and 3rd son. His oldest brother Ronald was stillborn in 1936. The second child, a daughter Darlene was born in 1938; then brother Donald in 1940 and Dennis in 1945.
Some of my favorite memories:
Papa taught me to work hard. One way that he did this was by teaching me how to pull weeds when I was very young. We had a large garden. I remember packing my grain bag full of weeds, making sure to shake off all the dirt. We would get paid 5 cents per pound. I had my favorite weeds ... those without stickers and thorns.
Also, when I was a young child, my father was Santa! There were occasions where I was able to accompany him on his visits and deliveries as his helper elf. I remember riding in his old brown truck in the dark night as he made surprise visits and I remember hiding with him at the LDS Institute.
There are so many more memories I have of him. I will continue to write them down.
