Born and raised in Shaker Heights, Ohio, Dennis came east to attend the Lawrenceville School and stayed the rest of his life in New Jersey, passing away in Chatham, N.J., June 4, 2020.

While at Lawrenceville Dennis made his first foray into the field of finance, which was later to become his lifetime career, as business manager of The Lawrence, the school newspaper. He continued this interest at Princeton, serving as business manager of the Prince, combined with duties as freshman wrestling manager and chairman of the Advertising and Selling Forum. He majored in politics and belonged to Cloister Inn. Immediately following graduation Dennis served his two-year NROTC commitment in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations.

Upon leaving the Navy, Dennis began at Bankers Trust in New York City, then in 1965 moved to New Jersey to join the financial division of Warner-Lambert. In 1968 he earned an MBA from New York University and in 1980 signed on as a managing director of Wm Sword & Co. in Princeton. He concluded as executive vice president at the Fireplace Place in Summit, N.J. Serving as a Presbyterian Church elder, YMCA adviser, and Alumni Schools Committee volunteer rounded out this full career.

Dennis is survived by his daughters, Deirdre Hatfield and Debra Lloyd ’90; their husbands; and many grandchildren, to whom the class offers condolences.
