Edward Francis Dennee is remembered by his many friends as a warm and gregarious man, one who was always concerned about the needs of others. Born in Hamilton in the early 1920s, Frank Dennee served in Burma during the Second World War. Later, he continued his education and worked in finance at Stelco. Mr. Dennee traveled extensively and developed a discrimination taste for opera, dance and theater. He was a well-known bridge player and a valued member of the Board of Players’ Guild.
He died in 1993 and, without any immediate family to consider, left his estate to friends, and to several local organizations involved in the arts, health care, social services and animal welfare. The Foundation also received a gift.
