Dennis D. Sheehan, loving and devoted husband to Patricia (Rose) Sheehan, passed away peacefully on April 3, 2021. He was the son of the late Duane and Virginia Sheehan and brother to Diane Strassel, Dean, Dana and the late Denise Sheehan.
He is also survived by his sisters and brothers-in-law, Diana (George) LeCroy and Mary Ellen (Tim) Mulvey.
He was proud to be called Uncle by Matthew (Sylvia) Calos, Ryan Mulvey, Gregory (Laura) Mulvey, Mark Strassel (Rebecca Rudell), Matthew Strassel, Amber Sheehan (Mike DeLoach), Natalie (Gilbert Rosado) and Kristin Valdiviezo-Perez.
The joy of his life were his great nieces and nephews; Leah Mulvey, Charlotte and Henry Mulvey, Felix Calos, Audrey and Sadie Strassel. Dennis is also survived by his beloved friends, Norma Gonzalez and her daughters Jessica & Zureidy. He will be greatly missed by his faithful, constant companion, Lilly.
After his cancer diagnosis 25 years ago, Dennis became an inspiration to those who witnessed his courage. He never complained and was always hopeful.
He was a 1964 graduate of DeSales Catholic High School, proudly served his country as a medic in the USAF and retired from Harrison Radiator Division after 31 years of service.
Golf was his game. From a young age, he often road his bike with golf bag on his back from his childhood home on Church Street to the Niagara County Golf Course. He loved the game and was always eager to share his “expertise” most generously with his brother-in-law and nephews.
In addition to golf and being an avid NY Yankees fan, he enjoyed spending time with friends on the shooting range where he will be remembered for his quick wit and dry sense of humor.
