Denny was an avid Phillies fan and enjoyed traveling with his wife to Clearwater, FL for Spring Training. He loved vacationing with his family and friends, especially at "The Chalet" in Ocean City, MD and Siesta Key, FL. Denny was active in the Thursday Men's Sr. Bowling League at Bowl-A-Rama. He enjoyed sipping a good Manhattan.

He will be sadly missed by his wife, his children, Jeffrey D. Bastian, husband of Caroline, Exeter Twp., and Denise M. Chelius, wife of John, Whitfield, and by his four grandchildren; Drew and Benjamin Bastian, and Cody and Cassidy Chelius; and great-granddaughter Luna Bastian, who were the joy of his life.
