Dennis James Loxton Jr., 69, of Toledo, OH, best friend and beloved husband of Lynne (Adams), passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 22, 2014. Born August 23, 1944, in Bristol, England. After arriving in the 'new world' in 1948, he lived in Ramsey, NJ, then Fort Wayne, IN, finally spending his last years in Toledo, OH.

After his military career, he spent the next 40 years in the hardware wholesale business; of which the last 15 years working with the Dan Waitz Assoc.
