Dennis thoroughly enjoyed his retirement years with Debbie. Together they shared an active social life with many close friends both in the Syracuse area and in Florida. He loved spending time with his family and grandchildren, golfing, watching SU sports and the Boston Red Sox. Every year he looked forward to wintering in Florida.
He was predeceased by his wife, Florence Masi LaHood (1998); and his parents, Herbie and Joyce LaHood.
Per his wishes, there will be no calling hours. A private service will be held for immediate family at Eaton-Tubbs Fayetteville Chapel.
