Obituary:  

After A long and hard fought battle with his health, Dennis left for his next journey. He Graduated from Masconomet Regional High School Class of 1971. From an early age, Dennis traveled to the beat of a different drummer. Dennis was an owner/operator of several tractor trailers and a mechanic by trade, a fix anything guy. He was great with his personal modifications. He was one of the original Middleton jeep boys, a Schooner Saloon-er and a pioneer of the River Burn. He was also a successful boater when he remembered the bilge plug. He loved riding his antique 71 FLH-HD in his PJ pants and leather jacket. He was a frequent flyer to D&D for coffee and donuts for him and his dog Rex. Dennis owned /operated DW repair a garage in Middleton which doubled as a home for little wanderers too. He would fix your car and help mend a broken heart. He helped teenagers that needed some direction in their life. Den was the best friend that anyone could ask for. He was the mentor that listened and gave you the inspiration and confidence you needed so you could walk away with your head held high. His generosity was selfless and endless. He has taught so many and touched so many lives. Uncle Den's legacy will live on in all of us for generations. He was the son of the late Arthur E. Willey SR. and Glenice L. Willey and brother to Arthur E. Willey JR., Timothy A. Willey, Robyn Stedman and the late David K. Willey. Also leaving many nephews, nieces and friends.
