Dennis R. Pietrini
04/05/2022

On Tuesday, April 5, 2022, Dennis Roy Pietrini (76) of Hinsdale, Illinois passed away peacefully surrounded in love by his family and friends after a long and brave battle with Parkinson’s. He will be forever remembered by his wife Elaine and his children, Jennie (Roy) and Debby (Michael). His memory will also be treasured by his beloved grandchildren Lily, Joey, Dylan, and Drew. Being Italian, Dennis had many family members who will deeply miss him including his siblings Rich (Angie), Janet, and Bob (Marie), his great uncles Joe and Vince (late Kathy), his great aunts Angie and Rose (late Fritz), his nieces and nephews Joe (Katy), Tony (Michelle), Tom (Lauren), Rob (Eleni), countless cousins, and many dear friends. Paving the path to heaven are his parents, Samuel and Millie Pietrini.

Dennis grew up in River Grove, IL and attended East Leyden High School. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Illinois and his DDS degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dennis opened his own dental practice and faithfully served his patients and community for 42 years at Franklin Park Dental Associates. He was one of the first dentists to use a laser when conducting dental procedures.  He dedicated his time and effort to training various dental personnel from 30 plus countries around the world.  He was also the 2001 president of the Academy of Laser Dentistry.

Dennis’ dedication to his country and community included serving as Lieutenant in the US Navy and giving back to many Italian American charities. He served as President of Casa Italia, and he received numerous awards throughout his life including the 1998 Italian Cultural Center’s Man of the Year Award, being inducted into Leyden High School’s Wall of Fame, and the 2013 Chicagoland Italian American Charitable Organization’s Humanitarian Man of the Year Award. He was also an avid golfer. Dennis spent decades trying to master his golf game on golf courses throughout this country and across the globe.

Dennis will be remembered as a devoted husband, loving father, and doting grandfather. He was a great listener, a jokester to his core, a caring and thoughtful friend to many, and he made everyone he met feel special because he was humble, kind, and never shy to tell you how much you meant to him.

We are certain he’s being welcomed into the kingdom of heaven by his friends and family that have gone before him with open arms and his golf bag.

Visitation Friday April 8th from 4 to 8 pm at Adolf Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Ltd. 7000 S. Madison Street, Willowbrook.

Funeral Service Saturday April 9th, 11:00 am at Christ Church of Oak Brook, 501 Oak Brook Road, Oak Brook, IL 60523
