November 26, 1946 - May 21, 2022
Dennis “Denny” Garness, 75, of Evansville, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 21, 2022 at Deaconess Gateway Hospital surrounded by his loving family. Denny was born November 26, 1946 in Mitchell, South Dakota to the late Olaf and Mabel (Sneesby) Garness. He was a former Vice-President and a National Sales Manager for Faultless Caster for 30 years. Denny was an active member of Zion United Church of Christ-Lippe. Surviving Denny is his loving wife, Alice Garness; two daughters, Deborah Herrmann (Donnie) of St. Philip, Indiana and Jennifer Rotelli (John) of Evansville, Indiana; one son, Danny Garness (Teresa) of Evansville, Indiana; one brother, Leonard Garness of Sun City, Arizona and nine grandchildren; Avery Garness, Ellie Wickham (Alex), Andy Herrmann, Devan Garness, Kole Johnson, Adam Herrmann, Eric Herrmann, Cloe Jewell and Grace Johnson. In addition to his parents, Denny was preceded in death by, a sister, Carolyn Garness and a brother, Roger Garness. Denny and Alice were happily married for 54 years and built a beautiful life together. Growing up in rural South Dakota, he learned a tremendous work ethic that served him well throughout a very successful career. Starting as an entry level call center clerk with Faultless Caster, he rose to their National Sales Manager with product development responsibilities that took him around the world. Denny’s true passion, however, was his family. He doted on his family and took care of everyone else’s needs first. He rarely missed one of his children’s ballgames or dance recitals and when grandchildren came, he rarely missed those games, recitals, or musicals either. His generosity, humility and compassion knew no bounds and he will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him. Services will be held 10:00 A.M. Friday, May 27, 2022 at Zion United Church of Christ-Lippe, Pastor Al Schmitz officiating. Burial will follow in the Zion UCC Cemetery. Friends may visit with the family from 2:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M. Thursday, May 26, 2022 at Pierre Funeral Home, 2601 W. Franklin St. Evansville, Indiana 47712 and 9:00 AM until service time Friday at Zion UCC Lippe. Memorial contributions may be made to Zion United Church of Christ-Lippe, 9000 Copperline Rd, Mt Vernon, IN 47620. Condolences may be made online at www.pierrefuneralhome.com.
