Barrett Township News, Events, Public Notices: Villages of Mountainhome, Cresco, Skytop, Buck Hill Falls, Canadensis
Philip Paul Dente, II, 79 Canadensis, passed away on Friday, January 20, 2023.
Born February 5, 1943, in Exeter he was the son of the late Philip “Fritz” and Josephine (Pepe) Dente. Philip was the husband of the late Patricia (Phillips) Dente.
He was the owner and operator of The Village View and was a former supervisor of Barrett Township. Phil was an avid Eagles fan (Go Birds!), a devoted father and grandfather, and cartoonist who loved golfing, card games, spending time with his family, and spoiling his grandkids and great-grandkids, not necessarily in that order.
