Dennis Dailey

January 21, 1957 ~ July 23, 2020 (age 63)


Dennis Dailey, 63, of Van Wert passed away unexpectedly on July 23, 2020.

Dennis was born January 21, 1957, in Decatur, IN, to Ralph and Estella (French) Dailey who both preceded him in death.

He graduated from Parkway High School, and worked in Maintenance at CSP for many years. Dennis was a member of LifeHouse Church in Van Wert. He was a hardworking man who never knew a stranger. Dennis was a helping hand to all people he knew; he would give you the shirt off his back if you needed. Dennis would often go without, so that others could have. Dennis could hold a lot, and he did, always working hard to provide for his family. He was an amazing father, to his children and step children, who he loved dearly.

Dennis loved his family, spending time with them was his greatest joy. Dennis especially loved his dog, coco, who he loved like his own.

Dennis was an exceptional man, and he will be missed and remembered fondly by many.

In addition to his parents, Dennis was preceded in death by his brother, Bob Dailey.

Dennis is survived by his loving wife, Cindy; his children: Chadd (Krista) Dailey, Lyndsay (Whitney Wolverton) Drake, Melissa (Rick) Gent, Jodi (Seth) Zimmerman; his siblings: Mark Dailey, Sandy Dailey, and Deb (Phil) Rigano; his grandchildren: Javin, Kalen, Myia Etzler, Chloe Dailey, Kylee Brassell, Alyssa, Elizabeth Gent, Olivia, Bryce Zimmerman, and Anikyn, Abel Harter; and great grandchildren, Avionna, Zavier Brassell.

Dennis's family will receive friends at Alspach Gearhart Funeral Home from 4-7PM on Thursday July 30, 2020. Funeral services will be held at the Funeral Home on Friday, July 31, 2020 at 11 AM, with an hour of visitation held prior to funeral services. Interment will follow in Ridge Cemetery, Middle Point.

Preferred memorials may be made out to his loving wife Cindy.
