Life Story / Obituary
Mr. Dennis Lee Marzuki passed away Monday, September 10, 2018. He was born in Illinois to Albert & Viola (Schindlbeck) Marzuki. He was a graduate of Grand Haven High School and served his country in the US Air Force during the Korean War. Mr. Marzuki had been employed at Bastian Blessing Co. in Grand Haven, MI for much of his career and capitalized on the skills he had learned and opened his own successful business called Restaurant Installation Services. This venture allowed him to travel the country and later retired from while he worked alongside family, friends and former colleagues professionally installing restaurant stainless steel kitchen equipment. His full retirement provided more time for his passion of fishing on the big lake, traveling, collecting and entertaining family and friends with his famous fish fry.
If Dennis wasn’t in pursuit of his passions you would find him on his boat called “The NO-MI-NI” and also assisting charter boats in Grand Haven, MI. because of the enjoyment of watching others catching the big “King” Salmon. Most recently, Dennis looked forward to heading south for the winter to enjoy the beautiful sunsets and tranquility of fishing on his lake home in Central Florida.
Dennis Marzuki was survived by his daughters, Nicole (Rick) Nowicki of Grand Haven, Michelle (Shiloh) Eck of FL, Noelle (Gabriel) Knowles of PA; (5) grandchildren; Britt, Breanna, Cauryn, Lindsey and Aiden. Dennis is also survived by his nephew Brian Stuhan and former wife Barbara Marzuki. He was preceded in death by both parents as well as his sister, Bonnie Stuhan. He was a friend and longtime companion to Irene Arbogast and her children, Jim, Kelly and Terri as well as their children Justin, Jordan, Connor, Christopher, Brett, Kristen and Michael.
SERVICE: A celebration of life for Dennis Marzuki will be held at a later date.
If desired, family and friends can make a memorable contribution in Dennis’ name to the local foundation Sportsmen for Youth.
