Dennis “Denny” Dean Zahrt, 72, of Shell Rock Iowa and previously from Everly, Iowa, passed away Sunday night, January 27, 2019, at Bartels Lutheran Retirement Community in Waverly.

Denny was born on July 18, 1946, in Spencer, Iowa, the son of Evelyn (Jones) and Harley Zahrt. He grew up in Spencer and graduated from Spencer High School in 1965. Following graduation, Denny worked as a mechanic at Dynos Gas Station and then as a machinist for Eaton Corporation. After his retirement, Denny moved to Shell Rock to be near Chris and his grandkids.
