Dennis Patrick McGuire’s love of life didn’t come to an end with his death. Dennis passed away on September 12, 2023 at the age of 73 after a courageous battle with lung cancer.

Dennis graduated from St. John’s University earning an undergraduate degree in marketing. He then went on to receive his MBA in marketing and advertising from Baruch College CUNY in 1977. Dennis wrote his master's thesis on independent television and went on to have a very successful career, being awarded multiple times in his area of specialization of radio advertisement.  He enjoyed a long and successful  advertising career for over 40 years, with his retirement coming in November 2016.

Dennis loved spending his free time at his home away from home in Sarasota, Florida. He was dedicated to his daily swimming routine, and loved to read, and was captivated by all  things "Titanic".
