BOW-Dennis Pizzimenti, 70, of Bow, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, July 17, 2017. An accomplished criminal defense attorney, he lived his life with no regrets, loved his family deeply, and made everyone's favorite Lasagna. He was the self-proclaimed 6-times Eastern State Champion of water skiing, the life of every party, always on stand-by with a joke, and a member of the National Puzzlers' League who eagerly awaited the arrival of the monthly publication The Enigma. He enjoyed running the board at Jeopardy, spending time with his close circle of friends, being a decades-long regular at "Tio's," and daily trips to McDonald's for his morning coffee. He could be easily spotted around town in his SAAB with its unmistakable "WWIII" Veteran license plates.
He served in the U.S. Air Force and was stationed in Thailand and Vietnam. He graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics from The University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington, and received his law degree in the first graduating class from Franklin Pierce Law School in 1976. After working as a public defender, he opened his own law practice with partner David Immen in 1981 and worked there until his retirement in 2012. Post-retirement he enjoyed traveling with his wife, Benette, volunteering for the RSVP program in Concord, and spending Poppa time with his granddaughter, Fran.
He is survived by his high school sweetheart: his beloved and ever-patient wife, Benette; his beautiful and charming daughter, Julia
and her husband, Jake; his two grandchildren, Frances, 2, and Silas, 6 days; and his brothers, Bruce and David.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 22, 2017 at 2 p.m. at Bennett Funeral Home, 209 North Main Street in Concord with a Celebration of Life reception immediately following for family and friends. In keeping with Dennis' non-conformist attitude, please feel under no obligation to wear black.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Friends RSVP Caregivers Program 202 N. Main St. Concord, NH 03301.
