Dennis Eugene Harney, 68, passed away suddenly on January 10, 2017 at his home in North Myrtle Beach, SC. Born on September 21, 1948 in Washington, DC. He was preceded in death by his parents, Richard "Dick" and Betty "Jean" Harney. He leaves behind his sister, Denise (brother-in-law Earl) White. He was a very proud uncle to nieces Kari of Houston and Kelly of Wylie, Texas.
Dennis was an avid sports fan, which especially included cheering on the Washington Redskins, Maryland Terps, and the Washington Nationals. He enjoyed old movies and classic rock tunes. Dennis always said he "had a heck of a lot to say." This may be so as his Oxon Hill Senior High classmates of 1967 voted him Most Talkative. He attended Forest Heights Elementary, John Hansen Junior, and St. Thomas Moore before graduating from Oxon Hill Senior High.
After high school, he enlisted into the U. S. Navy. Upon completing his military service, he was a police officer for the Capital Police Department. After leaving law enforcement, he was a food broker at a local distribution center and a sales person for a Dodge/Kia dealership in Manassas, VA. In 2005, Dennis retired and moved to N. Myrtle Beach, SC where he was enjoying condo living and playing golf. His greatest accomplishments were made through sobriety.
Dennis made many dear friends throughout his travels. Family and friends are planning memorial tributes as an AA meeting. The first tribute is on February 19, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church, 1100 8th Ave N., North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina 29582. A pot-luck reception will follow. For his local friends and past Oxon Hill classmates, there will be another meeting in his memory on February 25, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. in the chapel at Bethel Lutheran Church, 8712 Plantation Lane, Manassas, Virginia 20110. Covered dishes and stories about Dennis to share are welcomed!
Interment will be private at a local veteran's cemetery. In place of flowers, contributions should be made to the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association, or to a preferred charity.
