David Allan Denneny
David Allan Denneny of Cornwall passed away peacefully at Cornwall Community Hospital with his loving family by his side, on Sun., Jan. 4, 2015, in his 62nd year.
He was the beloved husband of Elaine MacDonald of Cornwall. He was the cherished father of Maggie MacDonald (Jonathan Marshall) of Toronto. David was the dear brother of Rhonda Lowe (Bob Wanex) of Marietta, Ga., Jim St. Thomas of Cornwall (the late Gail), and Jack St. Thomas of Long Sault (Sally). He will be sadly missed by his nieces, Angela Villeneuve (Dan), Erin Robertson (Brad), Tricia Gagne (Mike), Tiffany Lowe (Jason Power); and nephews Robyn Josefsson (Irina), Jay St. Thomas (Allison), Kris St. Thomas (Trisha), and Stephen Lowe (Roshanak). He was predeceased by his parents, Roma and D’Arcy Denneny.
Friends were received at McArthur Bros & MacNeil Funeral Home and Chapel, 428 Second St. East in Cornwall, (613-932-6300) on Wed., Jan.7. The funeral service was held in the chapel of the funeral home on Thurs., Jan. 8 at 11 am with Rev. Fred Cappuccino officiating. Spring interment will be held at Woodlawn Cemetery in Cornwall.
After his cancer diagnosis in August, David lived as he always had: one day at a time, taking in sunrises and sunsets, and enjoying family road trips through small town Ontario. He had an encyclopedic knowledge of music and sports, and a great eye for picnic spots. He was always fun to be with and he will be sorely missed.
The family is grateful to the cancer care team at Winchester District Memorial Hospital, and the compassionate staff at Cornwall Community Hospital, especially those in the Critical Care Unit, who supported him and his family during his last days.
Memorial donations to the Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation, Critical Care Unit would be gratefully acknowledged.
