Dennis Piluri, age 69, of Scottsdale, Arizona, passed away on January 5, 2019, in Phoenix. At the time of his passing, he was the proud owner of Great Western Sales, along with his brother, Robert. Dennis, Robert and Great Western, an organic fertilizer distributorship, have long supported the eco-agriculture movement. Their product, Organic Gem, has reached farms around the world.
Dennis touched everyone he met with his warm wit, loyalty and exemplary character.
Dennis was born to Seit and Mary Piluri on September 26, 1949. He joined the Air Force after graduating from Providence College. Dennis married Deborah on January 30, 1972, in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. Dennis loved to travel throughout the United States and could often be found on the beaches of Florida, Massachusetts and Hawaii. He loved life and knew the memories resulting from time spent with family and friends were more valuable and long lasting than any material possessions.
In lieu of flowers, the family encourages those whose lives were touched by Dennis to honor his memory by sending personal stories, remembrances and/or photos to P.O. Box 25955, Scottsdale, AZ 85255-0115.
