Dennis Asberry: 1943 ~ 2017


Dennis John Asberry, a lifelong San Joaquin Valley resident, died Friday, May 26, 2017, in Hanford, Calif. He was 73. 
Dennis was born Oct 20, 1943. He graduated from Mt. Whitney High School and College of the Sequoias in Visalia. 
A memorial service for friends, colleagues, and family will be held at a private residence in Visalia on Thursday, July 27. For details email Vichoward@outlook.com
Dennis made a successful career as an independent insurance agent in Visalia, but his heart was one of an American cowboy. He had a great fondness for Western films, Louis L’Amour novels, classic country music, and collecting unique guns. He loved riding horses, the Sierra Nevada high country, and the foothills of Three Rivers. 
Conservative principles and American politics were a significant part of Dennis’s life. He unapologetically supported President Trump. 
Dennis was a philanthropist and respected member of the community. He belonged to the the Central Valley Tea Party, the Tulare County Sheriff’s Posse, the National Rifle Association, and the Heritage Foundation.  He valued conservative groups for young people and supported Grace Christian School Boosters, Tulare FFA Boosters, and Rawhide Ranch Wild West Camp, to name a few. 
Dennis was preceded in death by his mother, Margaret Gulick Aulman, and stepfather Clarence Aulman of Visalia. 
He  is survived by three daughters, Victoria Howard of Visalia, Shenina Eddings of Marble Falls, Ark., and Shari Vannorsdoll of Visalia; seven grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and his mini Aussie, Waylon. 
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations to be sent to Rawhide Wild West Camp Scholarships (www.rawhideranch.com).
