Philip Paul Dente, II, (1943-2023) 79, 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.

He adored Willie Nelson (Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys), loved to play the guitar and, in his younger years, the drums. He made the best Grampy dogs and silver dollar pancakes and is and will be missed infinitely by his family and friends.

Philip will be lovingly remembered by his sons, Kenneth Dente and wife Maleana, Philip Paul Dente, III, Thomas Dente, Ryan Locher and his wife Angela; daughter, Heather Schratt and husband Shane; sisters, Anne Marie Mancini and Doretta Burgess and husband Brian; companion, Veronica Moran; grandchildren, Ashley, Denver, Lily, Ryan, Amanda Lee, Savannah, Logan, Braedon, and Damien, and 6 great-grandchildren. Philip was preceded in death by his grandson, Philip Paul Dente, IV.

A memorial visitation will take place from 2:00P.M. to 4:00P.M. on Friday, January 27, 2023 in the Bolock Funeral Home, 6148 Paradise Valley Road, Cresco Pa 18326 where a memorial service will take place at 4:00P.M.
