Dennis P. Kusey

Died Jan. 10, 2018


Dennis P. Kusey, 65, of Sterling passed away unexpectedly Jan. 10, 2018, at his winter home in Florida.

Dennis was born in Standish on March 19, 1952. He was a lifetime resident of Arenac County, a truck driver, bar owner and member of the Moose Lodge in Skidway Lake.

While trucking he wore many hats, hauling milk and sugar locally, and various freight when over the road like conversion vans, automotive glass and engines, even watermelon in summer for fun. Most recently it was asphalt with his latest business, Over-The-Hill-Gang Trucking. His travels took him to many places that proved to provide many interesting stories he enjoyed sharing. He survived one accident and one tornado during his millions of miles. In his free time he loved to cook, fish, hunt and enjoy friends.

Dennis is survived by his sister-in-law, Judy Kusey; only sister, Maritrese (David) Black; brothers, Jerome (Shelley) Kusey and Mark (Julie) Kusey; five nieces, Sarah, Amy, Stephanie, Maddison and Elizabeth; three nephews, Steven, Matthew and Elliot; three grandnieces, Ansley, Kenzie and Emelia; and two grandnephews, James and Nolan. Also surviving Dennis are many aunts, uncles and cousins; and special friend, Robin Federspiel.

He was predeceased by parents, Steve and Dorothy (Forro) Kusey; and older brother, James Kusey.

Funeral Mass will be held May 19, 2018, at 11 a.m. at St. Stephen of Hungary Catholic Church, Skidway Lake. Father Lawrence Bok will officiate, with celebration lunch immediately following in the social hall behind the church. Interment of ashes will be at Clayton Cemetery in the Kusey family plot later that day.
