Dennis (Dionysios) Felecos, age 91, passed away peacefully after a short illness on April 23, 2017 in Denver, Colorado. He was ready to join Pauline (Paraskevi), his wife of 65 years. He was surrounded by loving family and attended to by the wonderful medical staff at Porter's hospital.

He was born November 25, 1925 in Corinth, Greece. Dennis married Paraskevi Xiotis in 1950, and with their daughter Patricia (Panagiota) immigrated to the United States in 1956, settling in Denver.

Dennis worked for many years with Jefferson County Schools, rising to be the Head of Building Maintenance at the Administration Building. After retirement, he and Pauline traveled to Greece many times. He also spoke often of their cruises to Mexico and Hawaii. After Pauline passed away 2 years ago, he no longer wanted to travel, but he was encouraged by son Tim to go on one more trip to Greece this past summer. Traveling with Tim, Anne, Dakota and Reid, he visited his family home in Corinth and spent time with extended family and old friends.

While Dennis and Pauline enjoyed their travels, they were never happier than when entertaining at home surrounded by all the kids, grandkids and friends. Some of the happiest times were meals around the kitchen table; Papa and Yayia (grandma and grandpa) encouraging everyone to eat more.

He is survived by his children Patricia (Richard) Creese and Tim Felecos (Anne Templeton); grandchildren: Dennis (Trish) Felecos, Reid Felecos, Dmitrius Templeton (Lyndsay Llewellyn), Eugene Creese and Dakota Felecos; great grandchildren Duke and Theo and sisters Vaya Koutsouris and Koula Karavas. Dennis was preceded in death by his wife of 65 years Pauline (Paraskevi) and siblings Peter Felecos, and Toula Kelaris.

Trisagion service will be Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 at 7:00 pm; funeral service will be Thursday, May 18th, 2017 at 11:00 am. Both will be at Assumption Greek Orthodox Cathedral. Donations may be made in Dennis's name to Porter Adventist Hospital or a charity of your choice. Arrangements under the direction of Olinger Crown Hill Mortuary, Cemetery & Arboretum, Wheat Ridge, CO.
