Dennis M. Connolly, Sr.

April 7, 1942 – April 19, 2021

Denny was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, friend, and mentor to many. He was known for his infectious smile and laugh. He is survived by his loving wife and high school sweetheart, Karen (née Ternus). Denny spent his career as a lawyer and was active in the Boy Scouts and Serra Club International for many years, teaching kindness by his example. He will be missed, but never forgotten.

He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Katherine Connolly. He is survived by Karen, his wife of 57 years, as well as their eight children and their spouses: Mike (Dennis Jr.) and Leslie, Tim and Claire, Chris and Kim, Colleen and David Schultz, Sheila Nolan, Matt and Jonna, Greg and Kaitie, and Sean and Melanie; their 20 grandchildren: Maggie, Liam, Drew, Eleanor, Tanner, Charlotte, Brigid, Micaela, John, Caroline, Emily, Charlie, Saoirse, Sophia, Grace, Teddy, Brody, Teagen, Devin, and Lydia; his siblings: Joan Haggerty, John Connolly, and Tom Connolly; and many nieces and nephews.

A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations will be gratefully accepted by Mount Michael Abbey Vocations Fund at; Serra Club of Omaha; or CHI Hospice at
