Scott Raymond Dennig

Scott Raymond Dennig passed away at St. Clare’s Hospital in Denville, NJ on September 23, 2021, at the age of 52.


Born in Morristown, he grew up and attended schools in Denville where he lived for most of his life until moving to Rockaway, NJ 3 years ago.


Scott worked as a mechanic, a mover and a carpet cleaner throughout the years, but his passion was fishing. He was an avid fisherman, fishing in lakes, streams, rivers and the ocean and in the winter enjoyed ice fishing.  He also loved his vegetable garden and would often give away what he nurtured and grew.  Scott also enjoyed playing baseball, and was both a downhill and telemark skier.  He played soccer while attending Morris Knolls High School where he graduated in 1987.


He was predeceased by his father Raymond Richard Dennig in 2016.


Scott is survived by his loving daughter Samantha Lynn Dennig, and his lifelong partner Cindy Voskian, both of Rockaway.  He is also survived by his loving mother Marianne Dennig of Denville, and his siblings Laura and her husband Joseph Raccioppi of Wharton, Keith and his wife Deborah Dennig of Rockaway and his Godmother Carol Giuffrida Swinburne as well as his adorable cat Critter.
