Dennis Emery Neidlinger, 68, of Schuylkill Haven, formerly of Llewellyn, Branch Township, passed away of COVID-related complications on Tuesday at Geisinger St. Luke’s Hospital, Orwigsburg.

Born on February 5, 1952 in Llewellyn, he was a son of the late George and Wanda (nee Guida) Neidlinger. He attended Minersville Area schools and pursued his passion for cooking in the food service industry as a chef.

Denny, as most people called him, was an avid hunter and fisherman, having made the newspaper on two occasions: first, for harvesting an albino deer; and later, for catching a record-setting fresh-water eel. As a younger man, he enjoyed hiking, including several adventures across the country.

A loving son, brother and uncle, he was preceded in life by his parents, two brothers, John and George Neidlinger; three sisters, Shirley Legeza, Carol Morris and Deborah Baynes; three nephews, Joseph Neidlinger, Eric Neidlinger and John Felmey; a sister-in-law, Sharon Neidlinger.

Denny is survived by his niece, Jean Neidlinger Ehlinger (spouse, Ben), Schuylkill Haven. More like a daughter than a niece, Jean was Denny’s caregiver and “sidekick”, always there for his needs.

He is also survived by three siblings, Brenda Neidlinger Kukish (spouse, George), Llewellyn, Randy Neidlinger, Harrisburg, and Bonnie Barry (spouse, James); numerous additional nieces and nephews; great nieces and great nephews.

Denny touched our lives in a very loving and compassionate way. He will be missed and loved always.

Sleep well, old soul … we love you!
