Dennis received a BA in Education from Merrimack College, North Andover, MA.

Dennis was very proud of ALL his students throughout the years and enjoyed them as much as they enjoyed him. His popularity with all the students speaks for itself. We couldn’t go anywhere without someone yelling out “Hello Mr. Harrington”. The students amusingly referred to the passes he sent out as “getting a Harrington”. He will be extremely missed by everyone whose life he has touched.
He is survived by his wife Linda, with whom they shared 40 loving years together and 3 sons, Owen, Sean and Liam. 1 Brother and sister-in-law Paul and Ginny Harrington. 2 Sisters and brother-in-laws, Peggy and Al Griffin and Linda and Bill Bickler as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins.
