Jeffery L. Dennis

Slaughter Beach, DE - On February 21, 2022, Jeffery L. Dennis peacefully passed away at his residence in Slaughter Beach, DE.

He was born on September 1, 1951, in York, PA to the late Kurvin and Mildred Dennis.

Jeff loved life best at the beach. His dream to live by the sea was accomplished first in Ocean City, Maryland, and then at Slaughter Beach, Delaware. Teaching his children and grandchildren to fish, boat, and surf was the "best of times."

Jeff was a proud bulldog, graduating from West York High School, Class of 1969. Always "bulldog proud," he enjoyed his 50th class reunion in 2019.

Jeff started Dennis Antiques in 1973 in York, PA. He was known for his repairs and refinishing of fine furniture in many states. A good day was finding a treasure sitting along the road or buying a steal at one of the many auctions he attended. Another love was "flipping houses," long before it was a television show.

Jeff is survived by his wife of 50 years, Laurie Dennis (nee Weaver), his son, Jason Dennis and his wife Courtney, his daughter, Amy Gerhart and her fiancé Chad Van Laeys, his grandchildren, Rowan, Sawyer, and Wyatt Dennis, and Charlotte Gerhart, and his two beloved dogs, Tillie and Jack Henry.

May he always have seashells in his pocket and sand in his shoes until we join him at his new fishing hole.

Services will be held at a later date.
