    August 23, 1951 – April 6, 2011 Monroe, NY

    Dennis J. Serpi, a lifelong resident of the area, passed away after a short illness from complications of bacterial meningitis at the age of 59. Son of Jack and Valerie Daggett Serpi of Sarasota, FL, he was born in Nyack on August 23, 1951.

    Dennis graduated from John S. Burke High School and attended SUNY at Potsdam. He was the Owner/Operator of Master Class Shooters Supply, Inc. in Monroe and formerly of Serpi Construction.

    Dennis was a life member and avid supporter of the NRA and High Mas*ter Shooter. He was on the Board of Directors for the Monroe Chester Sportsman Club and was multiple win*ner of the New York State Governors Twenty Match for 10 years running. He also served in the Army National Guard. A perfect day for Den*nis was cruising in his Corvette with his “Doll” Alice by his side.

    He is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Al*ice Hazlett Serpi; beloved mother-in-law, Jane Hazlett of Monroe; sister, Sharon Linder and dear brother-in*law, Butch of Monroe, Joanne Weiner and husband, Gordon of Ft. Myers, FL; sisters-in-law: Nora Turnbull and husband, Kevin of Warwick, Mary Schmoeger and husband, Tom of Saunderstown, RI, Sally Gordon and husband, Louie of Monroe; brothers-in-law: Artie, Bill and Neil Hazlett of Monroe, and his great buddy, Tony. He is also survived by special nieces and nephews in*cluding Brad and Kim Linder, Tom (TD), Jennifer, Jo*seph Turnbull, Michelle and Christine Schmoeger, Sa*mantha, Nicholas and Victoria Gordon, Jeff, Jon and Josh Weiner; great grandniece, Olivia and a never*ending list of loving friends. He was predeceased by his father-in-law, Cornelius Hazlett.

    A Memorial Mass in celebration of Dennis’ life will be held at 10 a.m., Saturday, April 16, at Sacred Heart Church, 26 Still Rd., Monroe.

    In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Dennis Serpi’s name to the Wounded Warriors Project, 4899 Belfort Road, Suite 300, Jacksonville, FL 32256.

    That is the finest eulogy I have ever been honored to know; I am sorry for your loss. As an aside I pray that at least one person has the same sentiment towards me and my life upon my demise.

    Prayers sent.

    It sounded as though he was a great steward for the shooting sports and a good firearms advocate.
    May you treasure the fond memories you have shared with him.
