Dennis John Ott, 59 of Denver, Iowa, passed away on July 9, 2018, at Unity Point-Allen Hospital in Waterloo.
Dennis was born on January 31, 1959, in Waterloo, Iowa, the son of John and Rosemary (Burgess) Ott. He was baptized and confirmed at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Waterloo. He graduated from East High School in 1977. He was united in marriage to Marcia Henn Ebaugh on February 14, 2001, at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Denver. He worked at Wagner Auto Repair in Waterloo and had recently retired from Terex Cranes in Waverly after 38 years.
He was a member of the Willow Run Country Club in Denver and the U.A.W. Local #411 in Waverly. His number one love was his wife, kids and grandkids. He always made people laugh, was quick to make a joke out of anything with his great sense of humor. He would drop everything he was doing to help someone in need. In his spare time, he enjoyed restoring classic cars, golfing, woodworking, tinkering in our shop, and splitting wood. Dennis adored his puppy Peanut.
Dennis is survived by his wife, Marcia Ott of Denver; a son, Chris (Molly) Ott of Buckingham; a step daughter, Lora (Dennis) Carter of Cedar Falls; two step grandchildren, Jack and Molly Carter; his “beautiful” mother-in-law, Suzanne Henn of West Union; two brothers, Tim Ott of La Porte City and Steve Ott of Waterloo; and his nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, his maternal and paternal grandparents and his brother, Rick Ott.
There will be a Celebration of his Life on Sunday, July 15, 2018, from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m. at Dennis and Marcia’s home. Memorials may be directed to the family.
