Ralph “Hap” Denney

Ralph “Hap” Denney

Ralph F. “Hap” Denney of Uniontown, formerly of Connellsville, went peacefully to be in the presence of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday August 8th. He was in the comfort of his home and lovingly surrounded by his family.

Hap graduated from Brownsville High School in 1959. He went on to serve in the Marines Corp Reserves. He worked for Columbia Gas after being honorably discharged. Hap spent most of his career with CRH Catering until his retirement.

Hap and his wife Marlene are dedicated members of Abundant Life Church in Uniontown.

He was preceded in death by his parents Ralph and Mary Louise Soxman Denney, his sister Linda Cordaro and her husband, Guy, and brother Col Joel Denney.

He leaves behind his soulmate, Marlene. They were married for almost 57 years. He is also survived by his children Mindi Kay Breakiron and husband Garret, Tye and his wife Jessica, along with four grandchildren that he was so proud of, Zane, Zack, Caden Hap and Brynn. Also surviving are his brother Sam and wife Stephanie Denney, and sister-in-law Nancy Denney.

Countless people and professionals have helped Hap along his journey. The family would like to give a special thank you to the medical staff of the UPMC Transplant Team, Dr. Bruce Johnson and Tammy Tokarczk, CRNP; Dr Richard Cook, Sr. of Uniontown; and Denise McCormick, RN of Amedysis Hospice.

In lieu of flowers, the family would ask for donations to be made to UPMC transplant services. Additionally, please always consider the life giving gift of organ donation.

Hap leaves behind a legacy of humility and loving everyone he came in contact with. He was a disciple maker many times over and a true leader of his family.

Celebration of life will be held at Abundant Life Church in Uniontown, PA at 5:00pm on Tuesday, August 11th.  Please note, the church will be practicing social distancing measures.  The family would like to greet those in attendance outside in the pavilion following the service.

The arrangements have been trusted to the Andrew D. Ferguson Funeral Home & Crematories, Inc., 80 Morgantown St, Uniontown, PA 15401.

Your memories and condolences may be shared with the family at adferguson.com or the funeral home Facebook page.

So sorry to read about Hap. When I attended Abundant Life Church, he was always so kind and welcoming, he made me feel special as I’m sure he did with everyone. I will be praying for the entire family.

Dear dear Mar and Family, our hearts are with you even though we couldn’t attend the Celebration of Life for Hap. Circumstances beyond our control prevented us from attending. Dan had another stent and two balloons done that day on his coronary arteries. Hap was one of God’s miracles at Abundant Life as are you, Mar.

Know you are always in our thoughts, prayers and in our… Read more »
