Dennis J. Toscano

Dennis J. Toscano, of Liberty, passed away unexpectedly on April 10, 2021. He was 60.

He was the son of the late Rocky and Kathleen (McLaughlin) Toscano, born on December 26, 1960 in Bronx, NY.

Dennis was one of a kind, earning him the title of The Paintriarch! Recently named best painter in Sullivan County, he took as much pride in his work, as he did in his family. He was a shirt-off-your-back kind of guy that would literally do anything for anyone! Dennis was a survivor, a provider, a confidante, and a true boss! He was given years that he thought he didn’t have and was robbed of years that he thought he did! He was a father, brother, uncle, cousin, and so much more, but made everyone feel like they were his best friend. Dennis enjoyed life and being active. He could often be found playing one of several sports, either handball, basketball, volleyball or even skateboarding. He was a baseball coach who loved to help others and enjoyed listening to music and dancing. A true passion for Dennis was riding his motorcycle and he was a member of the Striders Running Club. He was a longtime friend of Bill W, since May 15, 1982.

He is survived by his children Joseph Toscano (Tricia), Ryan Toscano, step-children, Amy Clark (Felando) and John McDonough (Wasma); their mother Ruth Kearney, and his girlfriend Andrea Reale; siblings Patricia Inman (David) of Swan Lake, Rocky Toscano (Ronni) of Asheville, Rose Toscano (Scott)of Liberty, Jean Toscano (Joe) of Charlotte, Regina Marvel (Shaun)of Naples, Jolene Toscano of Liberty, Ronda Ottino (Scott) of Neversink and Robert Toscano of Liberty; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and grandchildren.  

Dennis is predeceased by his parents, Rocky and Kathy and siblings Robert and Frank Toscano and Christine Rubio.
