David William FENN Obituary

FENN, David William

David William Fenn, 72, of Tolland, beloved husband of Genevieve (Oprzadek) Fenn passed away Sunday (September 2, 2012) at St Francis Hospital. He was born Jan. 14, 1940 in Manchester, CT, the son of the late Cecil A. and Lillian C. (McBride) Fenn. Prior to his retirement he was employed by Penske Truck Leasing. David loved to play pool at the Senior Citizen Center in Tolland, and loved bowling. He was the best friend of everyone who met him. Only the good die young. Unfortunately Daves battle came to an end early Sunday morning. He was the strongest, most gentle, loving, kind, patient, knowledgeable man any of us had even known. We all have learned so much from him and don't know what we will do without him. It's going to be rough. We can all see a lot of him in ourselves. He was always the life of the party and made everyone laugh. You just felt comfortable in his presence. We all will miss you terribly but know you are in a better place now and someday we will all be reunited again. Until then Rest In Peace. We love you. Besides his wife of 51 years he is survived by a daughter Debra R. Hempel and her husband Rodney E.; a son David W. Fenn II all of Vernon; a brother and sister-in-law Thomas C. and Virginia N. Fenn of Fort Worth, TX; three grandchildren David T. Haberern, Brandon Haberern, and Kyle D. Fenn, several nieces and nephews.
