Obituary of Dennis Essary
Dennis M. Essary, age 62, of Trumbull, beloved husband, father and grandfather, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, July 30, 2017. Born in Detroit, MI on February 12, 1955, he graduated from Western Michigan University in 1978, married his high school sweetheart and their adventure began. His career in the paper industry enabled him to travel and become well respected in his field as Director, Digital Papers for Verso Corporation.
Dennis loved to travel, play golf, garden, and was an avid photographer. But time spent with family and friends was what he enjoyed the most. He was always ready to offer support, guidance and lend a hand, especially if it involved cars or technology. When his children were growing up, he was very involved in their sporting activities and was instrumental in organizing Trumbull Youth Lacrosse.
In addition to his wife of 39 years, Diane, and his mother Mary Kathryn Goodman Essary of Florida, survivors include three loving children, Kristin Essary, her husband John Collins III and adored grandson Jack of New York City, Kyle Essary of Lake Tahoe, CA and Matthew Essary of Trumbull, his sister, Cindy Wagner and her husband Don Wagner of PA, as well as several nieces and nephews.
