Obituary Condolences

John Lawrence Dennison of Landenberg John Lawrence Dennison of Landenberg passed away on Sunday June 30 at the age of 60, leaving behind his beloved wife Denise, his father David, his sisters Karen, Andy and Danny and a multitude of loving friends. Born in 1952 in Wilmington, he was the only son of Dave and Peggy (Margaret Skinner) Dennison. John graduated from Unionville High School in 1969 and from Princeton University in 1973 with a B.S. in biology. He worked for over 38 years at W.L.Gore & Associates where he devoted his gifted expertise to delivering computing services and solving any number of other problems demanding patience and creativity. John spent much of his youth in Switzerland, was an expert skier and he loved the mountains. He had many other interests including an abiding love for theatre which he nurtured over many summers producing Brandywiners shows at Longwood. He loved Hatteras trips with friends, the Purple Martin community in his garden, cats and dogs and the peaceful grace of his homestead. True to his generous nature, John has given the gift of life to numerous others through the Gift of Life Donor Program. You are invited to attend John's memorial service at 3 p.m. on Monday July 8 at Westminster Presbyterian Church on 10 W Pleasant Grove Rd. (Route 202) in West Chester. Rather than flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to Military Working Dog Foundation, (www.militaryworkingdog.com), the Nature Conservancy (www.nature.org) or World Wildlife Fund (www.worldwildlifefund.org).
