Dennis Downey, 85, passed away February 24, 2021. He served in the U.S. Marines and spent much of his life in a successful sales career. He prided himself on his strong work ethic, and the respect and admiration he received from coworkers and clients, alike. Dennis was always known for his fun nature and the ability to make people laugh. This was most evident in the pranks and jokes he shared with his children.
Dennis was a very personable man and had a way of making everyone feel like they were the only one in the room during a conversation. He was a devout Christian, whose love of the Lord grew and was most evident in his later years through the bond, and daily scriptures he shared with his wife, and true love of almost 56 years, Ellie.
Dennis is preceded by his parents George and Fern; sister Phyllis and brothers Michael and Richard. He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Eleanore; his children, Kevin Downey and Nicolle Fritz; his five grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. A memorial service will be held at Mountain View Funeral Home on March 10, at 10:30 AM at 7900 E. Main St., Mesa, AZ 85207. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, masks are required. If you are unable to attend, the family understands and respectfully requests notification.
