Roger Denning Obituary

Roger G. Denning, age 67, of Pendelton, NY died Thursday, November 23rd, 2023 after a long battle with illness.  He is survived by his beloved wife Margit, son Darren, brothers Paul Denning and Daryl (Mary Ann) Denning, as well as several nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his sister, Janice Denning, and by his parents Paul “Glenn” Denning and Arvilla J. (Bertron) Denning.

Roger was a loving, devoted husband and father, and a great friend.  He always told the truth even if it was hard to hear.  He loved animals, especially his dog, River.  Roger was always ready with a joke; most of them were funny!

Roger was a lifelong music lover who enjoyed 60’s and 70’s rock such as the Grateful Dead, Black Sabbath, and Led Zeppelin, as well as country rock and bluegrass musicians like Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, and Billy Strings.  Amongst his favorite authors are Jack Kerouac and Ken Kesey.

Roger loved the outdoors.  He enjoyed hiking, camping, fishing and hunting.  He also enjoyed anything with wheels, having had many cars, motorcycles, and ATV's over the years.  Roger was a talented mechanic and woodworker with an eye for detail; he could fix anything.

He worked at the Delaware Organ Co. in Tonawanda, NY for over a decade where he built and serviced pipe organs. Later, he worked for and retired from Tonawanda City Schools after 27 years in the Buildings and Grounds Department.
