Dennis Shaver Obituary

Dennis J. Shaver (“Denman”), also known as “the premiere sawman of the
nineties” was a tradesman at heart. Working up to his final days of life, he tried his
hardest not to let a job go unfinished. You could often find Denny when he was not
working enjoying time surrounded by his family and lifelong friends, cruising on
the golf cart with his two dogs, and playing “who sings it” anytime music could be
heard. Denny enjoyed the finer things in life, the crisp taste of a Bud Light Orange,
a good NASCAR race, any NFL team with Tom Brady, and good tunes. Denny’s
ability to bring humor, “wisdom”, love, and laughter to every situation will be
sorely missed and his presence will always live on. 

Born October 13, 1965, in McHenry, to the late Dennis H. and Karen (nee
McNally) Shaver, Denny passed away Tuesday, October 10, 2023, at home in

Survivors include his wife, Lauretta Boswell; sons, Joe (Amanda) Boswell and
Steve Boswell; a granddaughter expected to arrive April 2024; siblings, Jim
(Kelly) Shaver and Jamie Shaver; niece Allison Shaver; and many nieces,
nephews, cousins, extended family members, in-laws, and friends.
