We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at McIlvaine-Speakman Funeral Home LTD.
Dennis Allen Korzinski Jr., 52, died Thursday, June 30, 2022 in St. Petersburg, FL where he resided.
He was born February 26, 1970 in Washington, a son of Sharon Lee Mullins Korzinski Anderson of Washington and the late Dennis Allen Korzinski.
Dennis was a 1988 graduate of Chartiers-Houston High School.
Following high school Denny went into the entertainment field, where he sang, danced and acted mostly in Dinner/Supper Clubs. Starting in Pittsburgh, he moved to Indianapolis, IN, Treasure Island, FL and finally ending in St. Petersburg, FL, often entertaining bus loads of tourists. Anyone knowing him new how he loved to show off and how much he was in his glory entertaining.
In addition to his entertainment, he had his own photography business. His artwork was featured in many area shows as well as a few with only his works.
He was also an accomplished cook and baker, always cooking holiday dinner at his home for all the family and friends that might be in town. Denny enjoyed helping at the local animal rescue, where he particularly liked caring for the skunks and was hoping to adopt one, saying they were just like cats.
Surviving in addition to his mother are a brother, David Eugene Korzinski and his wife Missy; two nephews, Tyler David Korzinski and Alex Lee Dugan; two nieces, Harley Lynn Korzinski and Destiny Marie Dugan, an uncle, John N. Mullins Jr.; three aunts, Terry Mullins Mersino (Bill), LuAnn Mullins Morris and Lois Korzinski Matthews Rattigan and many great nieces, nephews and cousins.
Deceased in addition to his father are a sister, Sheila Marie Korzinski Dugan; an uncle, Lewis Raymond Korzinski; cousins, John Neil Mullins III and Lewis Raymond Korzinski Jr.; grandparents on both sides of the family; and his dog Buddy.
In February, Dennis had traveled home to Washington to celebrate his birthday with family and friends. He had planned on returning in August to again spend time with everyone. On Sunday August 14, family and friends will keep that date with a gathering to honor his memory.
A special thank you is sent to all of Denny’s friend and families that had a wake for Denny at his home in Florida on July 3, 2022, and for their help to his mother and brother for helping pack his belongings and making important phone calls.
Thank you and Love You All
