Obituary: Denis James Earley June 2, 1958-Sept. 1, 2022
CONCORD, CA (Dec. 6, 2022) — Denis Earley was taken to the Lord on Sept. 1 at age 64.
Denis was born on June 2, 1958, to Denis “Butch” Earley and Lucy Earley (nee Brooks). He graduated from Chesterton High School in 1976 and received a bachelor of science and business administration (marketing) from San Francisco State in 1998. He also held many professional and software certificates and was especially proud of his Press Card. Denis was hardworking, industrious and never stopped learning.
Denis was a brilliant, boisterous, brave, generous, caring, handsome man with strong faith. He was a 4th degree with the Knights of Columbus, a general ham radio operator and an active outdoorsman. He also enjoyed going to church, metal detecting, geocaching, leather tooling, rebuilding watches, auto mechanics, working on his travel trailer, reading, visiting friends and caring for his brother John. Denis loved his dog Reno and, to a slightly lesser degree, dogs Gypsy and Brudermuir. Denis also loved Chesterton, Ind., family, friends, talk radio, reading and writing political commentary and competing in military rifle matches; he was an expert marksman.
He was preceded in death by his parents, and his brother John followed Denis into eternity on Sept. 16, 2022. Denis is survived by his sister Patricia Earley-Innis, brother Dan Earley, Aunt Kathleen (Murphy) and Uncle Norman Nicholson, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, too many Chesterton High School friends to count and loving wife Carol Earley with her family clan of Benedickt.
Denis was an all-around fine man and exemplary husband. He will always be loved and he will be missed. Denis, please rest in peace in the arms of the Lord.
