December 02, 1960 ‒ March 27, 2020

Dennis Eugen Wilde 59, of Ashley passed away unexpectedly at his residence on Friday, March 27, 2020.

Born December 2, 1960 in Lincoln, Nebraska, the son of Richard C. & Norma (Elliott) Wilde. Dennis worked for Advanced Auto Parts in Delaware as a parts picker, and enjoyed his job.

Dennis was preceded in death by his father Richard Wilde; brothers Lyle & Chris Wilde; sister Karen Metzger.

Left to cherish his memory are Mother Norma Wilde; brother Daniel (Sandy) Wilde; sister Brenda Wilde; numerous nieces, and nephews; and K-9 companion Daisy, who he did everything with.

Dennis enjoyed anything Ohio State, he enjoyed watching football, basketball, baseball, or any Ohio State Buckeye sport. When Dennis wasn’t watching the Ohio State Buckeyes, he was shooting pool, or playing Keno, he also enjoyed hitting the occasional golf ball, but did it for fun, as he was not very good.

Dennis will be remembered as the loving, caring, and involved uncle that he was.
