Dennis Eugene Leri Obituary

July 31, 1945 - December 15, 2016

Dennis lived his life to the fullest as anyone fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to know him would surely attest. Rare is the man who possesses the combination of intellect, humor, strength, compassion, and intelligence, which he did. Even rarer is the man who successfully wields such attributes as to better not only his own lot, but that of his neighbors so selflessly as Dennis.

Dennis graduated from Marysville High School in 1963 after being voted "Mr. Tomahawk". He would go on to receive his B.A. from Chico State University and, furthering his education still, his M.A. from Sonoma State University. In his constant pursuit of knowledge and enlightenment, Dennis would become one of the world's most renowned and respected Feldenkrais Therapy Practitioners with people the world over traveling to the Bay Area to attend his seminars. A very spiritual man who deeply believed in and practiced the Tibetan Buddhist faith, Dennis would want us all to continue caring for ourselves, our world, and one another the way he did himself; understanding all that separates this life from the next is one single breath.

In his passing, Dennis joins his Mother, Marilyn Leri, and Father, Ronald Leri. He is survived by his loving wife, Maria Leri; his brother, Craig Leri of Marysville, and his sister, Debi Donsker of Huntington Beach; his two nieces, Heather Leri and Devon Donsker-Burden, and nephew Allan Leri.
