Dennis H. Hengstler,77, formerly of Philadelphia died Monday, July 11 at Cape Regional Medical Center.
Born July 28, 1944, in Philadelphia, he was the son of the late Harry, Sr. and Mary (Brunner) Hengstler.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his siblings, Alice, Charles and Harry, Jr.
He proudly served in the US Navy from 1961 to 1965 during the Vietnam War. He worked as a Scheduler for the former Rohm and Haas Corporation now Dow Chemicals. In his free time Dennis enjoyed fishing and being active in both the Elks Lodge and the American Legion.
His favorite past time was sitting on his front porch and patiently waiting to see the PA license plates of his family pull into the driveway. He will forever be remembered by his family as one of the greatest story tellers of all time often speaking of his many adventures.
As a young boy Dennis would visit Wildwood with his parents, eventually he and his wife of 58 years, the former Marie Siegle, would relocate from the Philadelphia area and establish a residence in Cape May County.
Surviving are his beloved wife Marie; son Michael husband of Monica, Philadelphia; Theresa wife of Tony, Philadelphia; and Kimberly Hedgepeth, Philadelphia. He leaves a legacy behind in his 8 grandchildren Timothy, Victoria, Samantha, Erik, Andrew, Kyle, Justin and Marc and 15 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews.
Interment with military honors will be held at Washington Crossing National Cemetery, Newtown PA at a later date. Evoy Funeral Home 3218 Bayshore Road North Cape May has been entrusted with arrangements. Please visit EvoyFuneralHome.com to share a condolence for the Hengstler family.
