Denis Ward

March 3, 1956 - February 4, 2020

Service Date:

Friends and Family may call on Wednesday, March 4th from 5 - 7 p.m. at the Autumn Green Funeral Home, 47 Oak St., in Alfred.

Denis Ward, 63, of Waterboro, passed away on February 4, 2020 at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House in Scarborough.

Denis was born on March 3, 1956 at the Clover Hill Hospital in Lawrence, Massachusetts, the son of Charles and Rita Ward.

Denis had a wonderful sense of humor, which he accredited to being born and raised in Massachusetts. He was a huge fan of the comedian Andrew Dice Clay as well as alternative-rock music.

In 1997, Denis married his true love Stephyne Silva-Read, and with an open heart became a loving stepfather to her son Heath. Sadly, after 11 years of marriage, Stephyne passed away in 2006 after a courageous battle with cancer. Denis and Heath continued to share a close and loving relationship and friendship.

Heath reflected that “neither he nor his mother ever saw Denis without his signature beard, he was a great father figure, husband, and friend.” “Denis treated me just like his very own son.”

He is lovingly survived by his stepson Heath Silva; five grandchildren; Thomas; Beau; October; Brady and Ella-Ann; one great grandson Brayden.

Family and friends may call on Wednesday, March 4th from 5 – 7 p.m. at the Autumn Green Funeral Home, 47 Oak St., in Alfred. Committal prayers and burial will be held at a later date.

The Autumn Green Funeral Home is respectfully handling arrangements.
