Per request of Dens niece, Dawn, if you have a picture(s) of fur babies who were friends with Dennis, please bring a non-returnable photo, or simple photo copy of, each of the fur babies with you, we will be doing something very special in honor of Dennis' love for all his extended fur family at the destination stop.
Dennis was born in Orange to the late George and Laura Robjohns. After his schooling he was drafted into the service. He proudly served our country with the US Air Force during Vietnam. Upon his honorable discharge he returned home and began working with his step father, John Meravi, at the family business, Village Tile Company in South Orange. Eventually Dennis took over the business and ran it for many years until later in life he chose to enjoy a more relaxed position at the Home Depot. He loved sharing his knowledge with the customers as well as gaining new and lasting friendships with many of the employees.
Dennis also spent a couple of years donating his time to the East Orange Fire Department Auxiliary. Dennis enjoyed many travel adventures, rafting, riding his motorcycle, and hanging with his fur and human friends at Wantage Dog Park where he was a Board member.
