Dennis Brian Jennings, 79, passed away Saturday, April 13, 2019, surrounded by his loving family in Virginia Beach.
Dennis was born Oct. 17, 1939, in Atlantic City, New Jersey. He was the son of Wendell and Florence Jennings.
He is survived by his four children, Denise, Sheri, Timothy and Tracy; and beloved dog, Misty. Dennis will be fondly remembered by his 12 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 61 years, Brenda Jennings; parents, Wendell and Florence Jennings; and brother, Wendell Jennings.
Dennis enjoyed a full life of countless successes. He worked his way up from a stock boy in a small town grocery store to the owner of multiple businesses. Along with his wife and family, he enjoyed traveling the world and spending long retreats at his vacation homes. Dennis had a great love for Philadelphia sports, gardening, fancy cars, boating, fishing and fine dining. His quick wit and silly humor was unmatched and continued to bring his family joy through his final days. Dennis found great pride in his expansive family.
Although he will be missed terribly, his family finds comfort in knowing the extraordinary love that started it all is once again united and will live on in all of our hearts.
A celebration of life will be held at 2:30 p.m., Friday, April 19, at Memorial United Methodist Church, 804 Gammon Road, Virginia Beach.
