Dennis served in the U.S. Navy from 1968 to 1972 aboard the USS Harry E. Yarnell and VT10. He was an employee of Republic Steel and retired from the Erie County Sheriff's Office and the Buffalo Bills. Dennis was a fun loving guy and one to never miss an occasion to "have a few" with the guys. He was thoughtful and kind to all around him, doing things quietly in his own way. He never missed an opportunity for a practical joke. A devoted family man, Dennis always put Anne and Katie first, saying "I love my girls". His love and care for his daughter, "my baby" during her illness was without limits. She was his heart and soul. He was a gentle man who will be missed by many. Family and friends are invited to attend a Memorial Mass in Our Lady of Charity Parish - Holy Family Worship Site at 9:30 AM on Monday. Flowers are gratefully declined. Memorial tributes may be made to Women and Children's Hospital Lung Center in memory of Katherine Clark. Arrangements entrusted to REDDINGTON FUNERAL HOME, 657 Abbott Rd. (822-1260)
