He was born in Yonkers, NY on September 5, 1946, son of the late Frederick and Virginia "Jean" Graham. He is survived by his wife, Susan Graham, whom he married in England almost 54 years ago, and his three children: Alexandra (Kenneth) Yarwood, Robert (Stacy) Graham and Meredith (Cqurtney Jemison) Graham. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Jade-Marie (Charles) Petrone, Sierra Yarwood, Robert Graham, Vivienne Jemison, Xavier Jemison and great-grandchild Carter Petrone.

From 1966 through 1970, Dennis served for the United States Air Force. While serving and stationed at RAF Alconbury Air Force Base in England, he met his wife, Susan, who was serving in the Women's Royal Air Force, in 1968. He was a Sergeant when had an honorable discharge and returned to the United States in 1970 with his wife, Susan, and their first-born daughter, Alexandra. Further on, son Robert was born, and then youngest daughter Meredith was born.
Dennis graduated from Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, NY with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Throughout his life, Dennis travelled extensively for business and pleasure both domestically across the United States and internationally. His expertise in transportation and sales found him working for Ramapo Valley Airport and Stewart International Airport; in sales for CB radios, videos, and excursions; and most recently he had retired from West Point Tours, where he had worn a variety of hats for over 30+ years, including driving both coach and school buses, training drivers, trip and route planning and dispatch.

In the 75 years that Dennis was on this Earth, he held many titles: first born son, big brother, loving husband, doting Father, Grandfather aka "Papa" and most recently great-grandfather (or as he would say "excellent Grandfather" because he was already a "Great" Grandfather. Dennis was a great friend to many; an intelligent, handsome, and hardworking man who was always cracking a joke or making a silly face to brighten the day. He will be missed, but never forgotten, as he lives on in so many cherished memories.
