Dennis Lee “Denny” Bomgardner, 72, of Mount Joy, passed away in the arms of “his girlsies” on Friday, July 20, 2018 at Hospice and Community Care, Mount Joy. He was the devoted father to Missy Bomgardner Stone, married to Stacy, and Buffy Bomgardner Shirk, married to Jamey, and was an adoring Pap to Kaycee, Tanner and Bryce.

Born in Harrisburg, he was the son of the late Charles and Stella Bomgardner.

Denny was preceded in death by his loving wife of 47 years, Janet (Way) Bomgardner as well as three sisters, Esther, Jean and Naomi and a brother, “Bus”.

He is survived by his sister, Rebecca Shissler, married to Jacob.

Denny was a veteran proudly serving with the Army from 1963-1966. A diesel mechanic by trade, Denny could pretty much do anything with his hands. He built his family their beautiful home that he has lived in for the past 45 years. Known to be the life of the party, Denny will always be remembered for his contagious laugh and his ability to make others laugh. He and Janet enjoyed camping, NASCAR racing and spending time with their family.
