Dennis Allen Juneau,64, a member of the Blackfeet Nation passed away on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at the Browning Hospital.  Dennis was born on October 10, 1952 to Edmond “Snackery” and Margie Bird Juneau.  Dennis graduated from Browning High School and at the time of his death was a maintenance worker at Browning Middle School. Dennis was a tribal employee for many years at the Community Action Program and Tribal Maintenance.   He, like many Blackfeet, was also a proud firefighter working for Frank Still Smoking (crew boss).
In his younger days Dennis was an outstanding basketball player in high school and later participated in many independent tournaments, often being selected as an All-Star.  He loved being with his family and grandchildren and spent time attending family gatherings both on the Blackfeet Reservation and the Ft. Belknap Reservation (Wilma’s home).  He liked to fish and hike especially at the family ranch west of Browning in the Kiowa Kamp area.  Dennis was happiest when he had his family, his grandchildren, other relatives, and their friends around him where he could tease and  tell stories.  
Dennis’s family includes his wife Wilma Speak Thunder Juneau and children – Crystal Horn, Heather, Jay (Dara), Ricki (John Youpee),  Barbara, Charlie, Ben and Patrick Cork.  Also, many cousins,  grandchildren and nieces and nephews.  
Dennis came from a large family. His brothers include  Stan (Carol) of Great Falls,  Bob of Missoula, Sam (Melinda) of Browning.   Other family members previously deceased include brothers Edmond (Sharon) of Garland, Tx; Mike of Browning, Wayne of Browning and sister Jerelyn (Lyle) of Great Falls.  Dennis has many other relatives of the Juneau, Bird, and Speak Thunder families.   Dennis’ family  heritage included Blackfeet, Oneida, Haida/Tlingit, so he has many relatives in other tribal nations in Alaska and Wisconsin.  
Dennis was a kind person.  He loved his family.  He will be missed and we wish him peace and a painless life on the other side. Dennis’s body will be available for public viewing at Glacier Homes Wednesday and Thursday with funeral services at 2:00 pm Thursday, April 27.
