Obituary Condolences

DENNIS, Fr. George T., S.J. Father George Thomas Dennis, S.J., 86, died on Sunday, March 8, 2010 at Good Samaritan Hospital, San Jose. He had been a Jesuit for 68 years and a priest for 55. After his ordination to the priesthood Fr. Dennis studied in Rome where he received his doctorate in Byzantine Church History in 1960. Most of his teaching and scholarly work took place at Catholic University in Washington D.C. He was on the faculty there from 1966 until he retired in 2000. Upon returning to California in 2001, Fr. Dennis joined the faculty at Loyola Marymount University as an adjunct professor of History. In 2005 health issues made it necessary for him to retire to Sacred Heart Jesuit Center in Los Gatos where he continued his scholarly work in Byzantine history until his death.
Fr. Dennis' funeral Mass will take place at Sacred Heart Jesuit Center in Los Gatos on Monday, March 15 at 10:00 a.m. Committal of his ashes will take place immediately following the Mass at Santa Clara Mission Cemetery in Santa Clara.
