Dennis was a 1969 Graduate of Glassboro State College, and a former employee of Harshaw Chemical Co., Gloucester, NJ. He was the world's most loyal NY Yankees fan, always listening to the games, and not missing one for the last 50 years. He was also a loyal Green Bay Packers fan.
He was known to always spoil his nieces and nephews. At anytime willing to show them how to play a new board game. An avid reader, he especially enjoyed Charles Dickens, and was an expert at Sherlock Holmes trivia. He had a love for music through numerous decades, especially enjoying the music of the holidays.
