Obituary of Dennis Anthony Zgardzinski
Dennis Anthony Zgardzinski, 72, passed September 14, 2020 peacefully in his sleep. He was born and raised in Jamesville, NY, but spent the last years with his Lady in Penn Yan, traveling and enjoying life. He was a proud Vietnam Veteran, serving in the Marine Corps, and receiving two Purple Hearts. He was a volunteer and lifelong member of the Jamesville Fire Department, enjoyed playing softball on the Southwood Fire Department team, and shot trap at the Pompey Rod and Gun Club for many years. He is predeceased by his father Tony, and grandson Dennis Michael. Surviving him are his Lady Love Janet Hayton, mother Barbara McDermott, daughter Holly (Scott) Earl, son Joshua (Lisa) Zgardzinski, granddaughter Lindsay Hotaling, stepmother Louise Zgardzinski, brothers Tony Jr (Andi) and Robert (Amy) Zgardzinski, sister Cindy (Brian) Rogers, several nieces and nephews, and many cousins. He was much loved by his family, and cherished by all that knew him. He will be missed by the Mennonites that he drove and considered to be part of his extended family. His lively banter and boisterous presence will be greatly missed. There will be a public Celebration of Life at Jamesville Fire Department, 6661 E. Seneca Turnpike, Jamesville, NY on September 19, 2020 from 2-4 pm, for everyone to gather and tell stories. Please be understanding of Covid Regulations as we gather to celebrate Dennis.
