The Life of Mr. Dennis M. Ferguson

Dennis M. Ferguson, 72, of Krumsville, PA passed away peacefully on Friday, May 5, 2023 in Tower Health - Reading Hospital, with his wife of 50 years by his side.  Dennis was the husband of Brenda R. (Gambler) Ferguson, whom he married on July 1, 1972. Born and raised in Kutztown, Dennis was the son of the late Floyd J. Ferguson, and Adelaide A. (Huseman) Ferguson.

He was a 1968 graduate of Kutztown Area High School, briefly attended Keystone State College, and completed cosmetology school. Dennis was employed most recently by East Penn Manufacturing Co., Inc., Lyons, until his retirement. He was previously employed by Kutztown Manor, Holiday Hair, and Alburtis Foundry. 

Dennis was an avid deer hunter, NASCAR enthusiast, and die-hard Mark Martin fan. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family, particularly weekly Sunday suppers with his children and grandchildren.  No one will ever truly fill his seat at the head of the table.

Dennis is also survived by his two children, Andrea L. (Ferguson), wife of Travis L. Bohn, Hamburg, and Gregory S. Ferguson, Krumsville, fiancé of Amanda M. Stimpfl; and four grandchildren, Kaylin, Evan, Douglas, and Austin.

Denny Boy

I met Denny when he moved to Highland Ave when I was 5. He and my brothers and me were  friends for life. We played baseball and hide and seek, and capture the flag and kick the can. We sledded together and biked together. Had a great childhood. Will always remember our great times. I loved Denny Boy ❤️

What a force! I know he's still busy getting his wings right now and is DEFINATELY in his element again; as the protector of all whom he loved. 

Brenda, Andy, Travis, Greg, Mandi, and've all got a true angel and guide watching out for you for the rest of your days here until you meet with him again.

I will forver hold the last hug he gave me, deep in my heart - it was only a year or so after Grammom passed, I had been through the wringer and honestly, it might have been the first and last hug. However, It was a doozy! I felt everything I know he wanted to say to me then, although clearly unnecessary.

That hug felt SO much like a transmission of strength, understanding and protection. All the things he is and was (strong, protective, understanding...) and all these things which he will offer to you in spirit whenever you need him. I know this. Deeply. Peace. 🕊

Back when.

Met Dennis when our children started playing sports. I even had him as an assistant coach for some time. Always enjoyed being around him.

My Childhood Friend

I'll always remember our fishing and hunting experiences and our daily walks to school.  While your earthly adventures came to an end, you now walk among the fields of bright colors, with a full breath of peace, and a new journey you can only experience in your passing.  Your family and friends will miss you dearly.
