Dennis P. Massaro, devoted husband, father, brother and friend, departed this life and went to be with his Lord and Savior, surrounded by his loving family on March 12, 2012. His death followed a courageous 10 year battle with Frontal Temporal Dementia. Dennis was a 1964 graduate of Wooster High School. He retired from Rubbermaid in 2000 after 32 years of dedicated service, where he was proud to be a union representative for Local #302 AFL-CIO. Upon his retirement he volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, he was a lifetime member of Lamplighter Italian American Club, National Rifle Association and the Dalton Athletic Boosters. His passions included his 5 loving grandchildren and family, hunting, fishing, four wheeling, traveling and old cars as well as music, good food and living life to the fullest. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers, Stanley and Tommy Massaro. He leaves behind his devoted wife, Judy and loving children, Brenda Massaro (Gary) Snyder and Steven (Kristen) Massaro, five grandchildren, his pretty little angel eyes, Alexandria, Tara, David, Thomas and Abbigail. He is also survived by his sister Mary Ann Massaro, brothers, Jeffrey (Debra) Massaro and Greg Massaro and his extended family, Lance Costanzo, John and Carol Cannella, Jim and Cathy Pagniano and Jim and Sara Urwin. A Mass of Christian Burial to celebrate Dennis's life will take place on Thursday at 10:00 A.M. at St. Barbara Catholic Church. Rev. Fr. Thomas Cebula will officiate.
