Dennis worked in New Jersey at West Company before moving to Pennsylvania in 1985 to work as a QA Manager at West Pharmaceutical in Montgomery for 35+ years. Outside of work, he had a variety of interests including golfing, hunting, fishing, bowling and when his wife was still alive, traveled all over the United States.
If you wanted to find poppi in his later years, he would be found at a football, baseball, basketball, soccer or softball game watching his two grandchildren Ronnie and Amanda rooting them on. He never missed a practice or a game for either of them he was their biggest fan.
Dennis is preceded in death by his father, mother, brother Roger Hill, and wife Marion (Day) Hill. Dennis married his wife Marion on March 23, 1963, they would have been married 60 years this year.
