Dennis Owen Kessler, known to most as "Denny," passed away on Thursday, March 15, 2023 at 11:39 p.m. at home on Sawmill Lake, rural Leesburg. He was 75 years old.

He is also survived by three special friends: Pat Buckley, Carol Conley and Larry Watson. 
 
He was a proud veteran of the United States Air Force and a proud patriot. He was hardworking, family-focused and loved boating with his children, grandchildren and friends. He loved to laugh and had a good sense of humor. He was a member of American Legion Post 253 and spent more than 10 years drag racing, in which he was quite successful. He liked coffee, reading and time spent outdoors.
