Obituary for Dennis “Denny” Morgan Epps

Dennis “Denny” Morgan Epps

July 24, 1942 - September 29, 2015

Loving Husband, Father, and Grampy….Denny’s courageous battle with cancer ended on September 29, 2015 in the comfort of his home.


Denny was born in Indio, California to Joe and Ruth Epps.  He spent his younger years in banking before retiring from HAFB after 20 years.


He married his wife, Judy on July 8, 1988.  They resided in Roy where they spent time together making wonderful memories with family and friends.


Denny was a man of many jokes and great advice.  It was impossible to be around him without smiling and laughing.  He enjoyed his weekly breakfast and lunch dates with the guys and getting out for a round of 18 holes with his brother-in-laws, Darold, Bill, Henry and Boyd.  Denny was also happy when watching the Sci-Fi channel, putting peanuts out for the birds and going out with family for dinner and fun.


Denny will be remembered by his wife and soul mate, Judy; his two daughters, Kelli (Mike) and Dayna (Bob); his two grandsons, Myles (Bree) and Jordon; his great granddaughter, Ruby; as well as any and all who had the pleasure of knowing him.


He was greeted on his next journey by his parents, Joe and Ruth; his brothers, Joe Jr. and Michael; his granddaughter, Nikki; his four legged friend, Scooter; and his golf buddies, Bill and Darold.


A small Graveside Service will be held at the Roy City Cemetery, 5200 South 2300 West, Roy, Utah on October 7, 2015 at 2:00 PM.  A Celebration of Life will follow at 4:00 PM at the Ogden VFW, Post 1481, 910 12th Street, Ogden, Utah.


The family would like to give special thanks to Boyd for taking him to all of his appointments and to Bob for encouraging him to keep fighting, also a special thanks to all the medical staff involved in his care.


“How lucky we are to have someone that makes saying goodbye so hard”.


Services under the direction of Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836 36th Street, Ogden, Utah.

Judy, my heart goes out to you and your family. I so enjoyed getting to know Denny in the early 80's and then the man he became when he married you a few years later. You added so much joy and love to his life. I remember him being so delighted to be with you. I can't help but think he died too young. We're thinking of you and sending our love. Teresa, Allie and Alex

I met Denny in 1975 right after he moved to Ogden from California and liked him from the start. He had a smile and a personality that could light up the room. When I first met him I told him he needed to be a salesman because he had the personality that people liked right from the get go. My only regret was not being around him more. I am glad that he is now out of pain from that horrible disease that took his live much to soon. GOD BLESS!
