PITTSBURGH, Pa .– Denny Connors, 74, died on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, after a long battle with prostate cancer, with his wife and children by his side.

Denny was the son of Harry (deceased) and Carol (Chase) Connors. He was the beloved husband of Renee Russell Connors; father of Colin (Annie) Connors, Meghan (Chris) Adamski and Kristen (Keith) Zabela; widower of Suzanne Klose-Connors; stepfather of Brittney, Michael and Scott Russell, Fred (Jen) Klose and Jason (Nikki) Klose; nephew of Nick (Sue) Chase; brother of Duke (Shawn) Connors, Charles (Nancy) Connors, Tommy Connors, John (John, deceased) Connors, Chris (Nancy) Connors, Carol Ann (Neal) Barkett and Kate Connors. He was the darling “Pop” of Corbin, Ansley, Quinn, Cameron, Luke, Owen, Connor, Lily, Paige, Orion, Joey and Julie. He was “Uncle Denny” to many nieces and nephews. He loved and was loved by many close friends and colleagues.

Denny was born June 11, 1947 and raised in Pittsburgh. He loved his country and was a proud veteran. He served in the US Air Force during the Vietnam War and was stationed in Thailand. After returning home, he attended Xavier University in Cincinnati, where he obtained his bachelor’s degree. He began his career in sales in the coal and mining industry, while raising his family in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania. He excelled as Director of Sales and Marketing at RG Brewton, before retiring in 2014. Denny loved spending time with his beloved wife, family and friends; and golf, write, vacation at the beach and host the annual “Harryman”.

Denny was a romantic and always put his whole heart into his passions. He was a storyteller at heart. In 2019, his candid memoir, “It’s Me, Until It’s You,” was released. He detailed his personal struggle with prostate cancer in hopes it would raise awareness among others. Although Denny has had many professional and personal accomplishments, family has always been the most important and he instilled it in his children.

Denny was the light of any room he found himself in – generous, kind and always uplifting. His personality was as contagious as his laughter. His absence will always be felt and his shoes can never be filled.

Family and friends will be received from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. today, September 21, 2021, at Warchol Funeral Home, 3060 Washington Pike, Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, 412-221-3333.
