He served in the US Army 1st Division “Big Red 1” from 19701972.
Throughout his life he was employed as an instrument technician in various paper mills (PA and ME) and electric generation companies. He retired from the Warren Generating Station, NRG Energy (formerly GPU), after 26 years.
Leaving behind his loving wife Bev, he is also survived by 2 children, a son, Jason A. Mowrey (Emily) of Warren, PA; a daughter, Mary E.

In addition to his parents, he was proceeded in death by his brother, Charles (Rick) Mowrey of Wilcox, PA.
Denny will be remembered by his family and friends as the kind of man that was always willing to bend over backwards to help those in need. He had a heart of gold and was known to be a great influence on many, including his children’s friends. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved archery. The only thing he loved more than the outdoors was being at home with his wife, children and grandchildren.
There will not be a traditional funeral service as Denny had decided to donate his body to the Cleveland Clinic Body Donation Program. His hope was that, even in death, he could continue to help others. The family is holding a celebration of life in honor of this great man’s life. The celebration will be on September 1st from 3pm6pm at the 905 Cafe, 905 4th Ave., Warren, PA; or through the Cleveland Clinic Foundation by going to giving.clevelandclinic.org.
