FRAMINGHAM – Wayne L. Dennison, known as “Old Duffer”, died on February 1, 2022. After short stay at Milford Regional Medical Center, Wayne passed peacefully with his family by his side.
Wayne was a man who would want to be remembered for his love of music, especially Bluegrass. He played his Martin guitar regularly along with his harmonica. His passion for music and his natural talents also included him playing the piano, banjo, the fiddle and the spoons! When he wasn’t playing music he cherished time in his woodworking shop. He also enjoyed cooking, gardening, fishing, camping, bonfires and spending time in the North Woods; especially when his family accompanied him.
Wayne had a long career as a Truck Driver. Early on he worked hauling gas for Merrill Transport until 1967 when he relocated to Massachusetts. He joined the fleet at Anchor Motor Freight hauling cars for General Motors where he retired in 1999.
Wayne is survived by his large and wonderful family which includes his brother, Clifford Dennison of Westbrook, Maine. His children: Jeff Dennison and his wife Melissa (Wayne’s favorite daughter in law); Jane Dennison and her fiancé Peter Litalien; Barbara Walbridge and her husband Scott; Elise Stritzinger and her husband Michael; Earlene Ray and her husband Robert; Wanda Pike and her husband Bruce; Wayne’s daughter in law, Kathy Pooler; Ernie Pooler and his wife Nina. He also has many grandchildren and great-grandchildren that he enjoyed spending time with and making memories as well as numerous Nieces and Nephews that were special to him.
Wayne was a man that always looked at every day as a Gift and enjoyed every moment!
A private Celebration will be held in the spring to commemorate his wonderful Life!
