Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Dennis Peter McGreevy, 59, of Duluth, passed away on April 12, 2023, from cancer.
Dennis was born in Augusta, GA, where he spent his formative years, before moving to Atlanta in 1975. He remained in the metro area for the rest of his life.
Dennis married Elizabeth (Liz) Ann Lacy in 1989. They had no children except the four-legged furry kind. Over the years they had many beloved dogs and cats. Liz would bring their future pets home and Dennis would fall in love with them with both of them agreeing that the maximum number of pets allowed was 4. He usually did the grocery shopping and prepared most of their meals. Dennis loved to cook for Liz. He was quite adept in the kitchen though he mocked his skills by saying he made food “like an eight-year-old with money.” Dennis’s wife claims he was the sandwich master. He and Liz loved traveling from Paris to Switzerland to Monaco to Ireland to England to St. Lucia. He loved and was beloved by his Kansas in-laws and thought Kansas had a “vast beauty.” Dennis was an avid sports fan and particularly enjoyed the Atlanta Braves and Atlanta Hawks. One of his most special sports trips was to Chicago when he and his dad visited Comiskey Park for a baseball game during the park’s final season before teardown. Family was incredibly important to Dennis both here in Atlanta and in Kansas.
Dennis is survived by his wife, Liz McGreevy, and five of his six siblings: Eileen Bennett of Salem, OR; Tom McGreevy of Bacolod City, Philippines (wife Cynthia); Brian McGreevy of Decatur, GA; Kevin McGreevy of Lexington, GA (wife Valerie); and Mary Free of Hadley, PA (husband Scott). He was preceded in death by his father (Thomas), mother (Doris), and oldest sister (Patricia). He loved his many nephews and nieces and was their favorite uncle (they knew he was because he told them so) as he was the only uncle who could talk like Donald Duck.
Dennis worked in the banking and IT industries and most recently in hospitality. Dennis attended Georgia State University and the Interactive College of Technology.
A celebration of life for Dennis will be scheduled at a later date.
Georgia Cremation in Duluth is assisting the family with arrangements.
