Survived by his wife Lalia, 3 children, 5 grandchildren and a step-granddaughter. “After training, he came home in 1964 to open his practice in Dartmouth, NS, where he spent his career between his office and local hospitals, including 25 years as chief of obstetrics and gynecology at the Dartmouth General Hospital. It is estimated that Denny delivered over 7000 babies throughout his career. He was passionate about teaching sexual education, both at Dalhousie medical school and to the public on his cable TV program, Let’s Talk About Sex. Denny had his own signature kindness and generosity that everyone loved. He went to the funeral of every nurse and doctor he had worked with, and no matter what the conditions were, he always had a joke to tell.”
