Obituary: Dennis Gum, 52, Ludington.

Dennis J. Gum, 52, of Ludington passed away on Saturday, August 25, 2018 surrounded by loved ones.

Dennis was born on November 11, 1965 in Chicago, the son of Dallas and Linda (Mead) Gum.  His father preceded him in death.

Dennis enjoyed fishing, working on old cars, and spending time with his many friends, but his greatest love was found in the company of his family and grandchildren.  Dennis enjoyed many nights on the porch laughing and watching them play.

Dennis will be greatly missed by his family including his mother Linda Kissell, his son Joseph Gum, his daughters Ruthie Johnson, Kayla Gum, Alysa Gum, and Rebecca (James) Connison; his 15 grandchildren, Austin, Keith, Floyd, Benjamin, William, Riley, Layton, Colton, Langston, Colby, Kennedy, Mason, Audrey, Jaron, and Phebe.  Dennis will also be missed by his sister Deanna (Eric) Gum-Schreiber, his brother Benjamin (Nancy) Kissell, and several aunts, uncles, nephews, and cousins.

In addition, his family would like to give a special thank you to Penny Englebrecht for all the love and support she gave to Dennis, as well as the many friends who helped him to enjoy his last few months.  Love also goes out to Hunter, Austin, and Aaron who Dennis loved as if they were his own children.   Dennis was also preceded in death by Hunter.

A memorial graveside ceremony will be held for Dennis at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 1, 2018 at Tallman Cemetery in Branch Township.  Please visit his memory page at to leave a memory of Dennis for his family, or to light a candle in his memory.
