Please share a memory of Michael to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Michael Paul Dencenburg Beaver Dams: Michael Paul Dencenburg, age 67, of Beaver Dams, NY gave up his brave fight on Sunday July 7, 2024 in the comfort of his favorite chair. Honoring his wishes there will be no prior calling hours. Services will be private at the convenience of the family. Memorial contributions can be made to the Altay Baptist Church, 4289 Six Corners Rd., Dundee, NY 14837 or the Tyrone Fire Dept., P.O. Box 69, Tyrone, NY 14887. Michael was born June 28, 1957 in Dundee, NY, the son of the late Paul Kenneth and Atha-Lee (Lyle) Dencenburg. He graduated from Dundee Central School in 1975. He started in the work field laying asphalt before getting into construction and backhoe operator. He eventually took a position with Shepard-Niles until they sold, which he then went to work for U.S. Salt in Watkins Glen. He worked until his health failed beyond recovery. He married the former Cathy A. Yates on Dec. 14, 1996 in Monterey, NY. He was a former member of the Tyrone Fire Department; and an avid hunter and fisherman. Michael loved mowing his lawn with a PBR, which is as close to Professional Bull Riding as he would ever get. When not working, or mowing the lawn, he was meticulously caring for his treasured garden, almost to the point of OCD obsession to keep it picture perfect just in case the editor of Better Homes & Gardens stopped by. Among his most cherished memories were the annual Maine trips when he would get to go lobstering with nephew Billy on his lobster boat even though they were in late December; the summer trips for Tuna made up for the cold. He is loved and will be forever missed by his wife of 27 years, Cathy A. Dencenburg at home; daughter Heather M. Dencenburg of Beaver Dams, sons Sean (Janice Rosemier) Dencenburg of Dundee, Raymond (Lidia) Roberts of Arvada, CO, and Aaron (Shannon) Roberts of Elmira; 11 grandchildren; 4 great grandchildren; and brother Jeff (Sharon) Dencenburg of Hammondsport; along with several nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his older brother Lyle Kenneth Dencenburg in 2022. He personally wishes to publically thank his daughter Heather for her unconditional love and care every single day. And he and his family extend a special thanks to Care First for making his final days more bearable and their continued support during this time. Arrangements were entrusted to the Baird Funeral Home, 36 Water Street, Dundee, NY. Online condolences can be sent by visiting www.bairdfuneralhomedundee.com.
