Ralph F. “Hap” Denney of Uniontown, formerly of Connellsville, went peacefully to be in the presence of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday August 8th. He was in the comfort of his home and lovingly surrounded by his family.
Hap graduated from Brownsville High School in 1959. He went on to serve in the Marines Corp Reserves. He worked for Columbia Gas after being honorably discharged. Hap spent most of his career with CRH Catering until his retirement.
Hap and his wife Marlene are dedicated members of Abundant Life Church in Uniontown.
He was preceded in death by his parents Ralph and Mary Louise Soxman Denney, his sister Linda Cordaro and her husband, Guy, and brother Col Joel Denney.
He leaves behind his soulmate, Marlene. They were married for almost 57 years. He is also survived by his children Mindi Kay Breakiron and husband Garret, Tye and his wife Jessica, along with four grandchildren that he was so proud of, Zane, Zack, Caden Hap and Brynn. Also surviving are his brother Sam and wife Stephanie Denney, and sister-in-law Nancy Denney.
Countless people and professionals have helped Hap along his journey. The family would like to give a special thank you to the medical staff of the UPMC Transplant Team, Dr. Bruce Johnson and Tammy Tokarczk, CRNP; Dr Richard Cook, Sr. of Uniontown; and Denise McCormick, RN of Amedysis Hospice.
In lieu of flowers, the family would ask for donations to be made to UPMC transplant services. Additionally, please always consider the life giving gift of organ donation.
