A longtime employee of Skinner Macaroni, Dennis was preceded in death by parents, Mary and Lawrence Monahan; sister and brother-in-law, Jean and Al Garrity. Survived by wife, Linda Monahan; brother, Bill Monahan (Betty); sister, Judy Lee (Bill); sister, Lanette Stanley (Al); son, Mathew Monahan, along with a multitude of stepchildren and step grandchildren and two step great-granddaughters, one named Jayla AKA “Little Bit” who spent part of every day since her birth wrapping Grandpa around her little finger. Dennis also left behind many loved cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends who will miss him dearly! He will be sorely missed by our small group of long-time friends: Tom Harris, Sheila Carlson, Jim Yeaworth, and Jim and Donna Donner.
Over Dennis’s last few weeks, he experienced much love from Linda, his family, and friends from a drive by birthday party to multiple visits by siblings (both in town and out of town), Saturday morning breakfast from Cathy, as well as his siblings’ children and his stepchildren stopping by as often as possible.
Dennis loved people; he was well known in the neighborhood as that friendly guy with the beard. There wasn’t a person in six square blocks that Dennis had not had some type of contact over the years on his daily walks.
There is a saying that we have all heard, “He would give the shirt off his back.” On more than one occasion, Dennis was actually known to give the shirt off his back to a complete stranger in need.
The Family will be greeting friends at the West Center Chapel on Friday, October 22nd from 10:00am to 11:00am with a Celebration of Life beginning at 11:00am and interment following at Calvary Cemetery. The Family asks that masks be worn. The Family will continue to welcome friends at a luncheon at the mortuary following our trip to the cemetery. Memorials may be directed to the family.
We look forward to hearing your memories of Den!
