William "Bill" Earl Denny, 82, Hernando, died Dec. 29, 2012 at Citrus Memorial Hospital. Bill was born April 1, 1930 in Shelton, Conn., to the late Earl and Ethel (Bourne) Denny. He served our country proudly in the U.S. Navy during the Korean conflict. A loving family man, he enjoyed his children and grandchildren. He liked being on the water and was a "tinkerer," building and fixing things in his home. He married Marion Bozcan in 1954 and for their 50th wedding anniversary, they enjoyed a vacation with their family at the Outer Banks; a beautiful memory for all of them. Bill was a veteran firefighter for the Old Saybrook, Conn., Volunteer Fire Department. He spent his working career as an engineering supervisor for Electric Boat Company, a division of General Dynamics, manufacturing submarines with over 30 years of service.

Denny (Sheree), Cary, N.C.; daughters, Amanda Denny Tuthill (Michael) Middlefield, Conn., Sharon LaCroix (Paul) Wheaton, Ill., Abigail Ciaglo (Matthew) Colchester, Conn.; sister, Shirley Wells, Massachusetts; 13 grandchildren. He was preceded in death by three brothers and three sisters.
