Dennis M. Litwinetz, 75, passed away peacefully at Rose Monahan Hospice House, while surrounded by the love of his devoted family. Dennis was born and raised in Nesquehoning, PA, a son to the late Michael and Olga (Sobol) Litwinetz. He was a member of Nesquehoning High School’s Class of ’61. It was during this time he met the love of his life, his high school sweetheart and future wife of 50 years, M. Jane Trevena.

After high school Dennis honorably served in the U.S. Navy and upon his return enrolled in Penn State University where he earned a BS in Computer Science and later, a Master Degree from University of Lowell graduating with high honors.

Dennis worked most of his career as an electrical engineer for Digital Equipment, Compaq, and Hewlett Packard Corp and held patents for his work. Even in his retirement he enjoyed tinkering with old computers. He looked forward to going out for Sunday morning breakfasts and was a New England sports enthusiast as well as a loyal follower of Penn State football. More than anything Dennis loved spending time with his family.
