Alan A. Dennison Obituary
Alan A. Dennison

AGE: 66 • Wilmington

Age 66, of Wilmington, DE., died peacefully at home on Wednesday, July 16, 2014, from pancreatic cancer. Alan Adams Dennison was born in Buffalo, NY., in 1948, to the late Gretchen (Adams) Dennison and Dr. Richard Dennison of Wilmington, DE. In 1966, he graduated from Mt. Pleasant H.S.; and earned a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Delaware in 1970. He was later employed by Sears and retired as a Heating and Cooling Specialist.

Alan is survived by his loving wife of 37+ years, Helen (Stang) Dennison; adoring daughter, Heather Dennison; brother and best friend, William Dennison and wife, Dianne, of Braselton, Georgia; one nephew, Gregory Fritz; and four nieces, Lauren (Fritz) Dogan, Rachel (Fritz) Sterback, Caroline (Black) Duda, and Holly Stang.

Alan was an avid reader, played bridge and chess, enjoyed gardening and feeding the backyard birds. His favorite vacation spot is at the family cottage on Murray Isle, Clayton, NY., on the St. Lawrence River—clear water, cool temperatures, swimming, boating, fishing, waterskiing and the companionship of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation cousins.

A private memorial service will be held at the Westminster Presbyterian Church, Wilmington, DE. In memory of Alan, contributions may be made to either Delaware Hospice, 16 Polly Drummond Center, 2nd Floor, Newark, DE 19711, or Save The River, 409 Riverside Dr., Clayton, NY 13624.
