Denny died April 1, 2023, in his hometown of St. Louis.
He graduated from St. Louis Country Day School, where he was president of his class. At Princeton, Denny majored in philosophy and was a member of Colonial Club. He roomed with fellow St. Louisans Tom Singer, Hugh McPheeters, and Harry Weber in both his freshman and senior years. In other years, he was a proud resident of legendary Witherspoon Heights.
Denny earned a law degree from Washington University School of Law. He served his entire professional career as an assistant U.S. Attorney in the Department of Justice. He retired in 2011 after nearly 40 years.
At Washington University, Denny met Susan Sherwood of Charleston, W. Va., and they married in 1969. Denny made and maintained many lifelong friendships, from Country Day School, Princeton, and everywhere else he went throughout his life. He entertained all with a delightful wit and kindness. He read voraciously, loved to travel, and had a passion for history and opera.
In addition to Susan, his wife of 54 years, Denny is survived by three children, Ann, Claire, and Theo; and four grandchildren. The class extends sympathy to them all.
