Dennis Robert Reppenhagen of Elsie, Michigan, passed away on October 31, 2023, at the age of 73, following a long, courageous battle with cancer. Dennis was born on May 16, 1950, to Robert and Lois Reppenhagen in Flint, Michigan. He graduated from Grand Blanc High School and later Ferris State University, where he earned his degree as a Registered Pharmacist. He always felt blessed that he spent his life in a profession that he was passionate about. It showed in the way he cared about his customers. He owned Grand River Pharmacy in Lansing, Michigan, before owning Harvest Market and Pharmacy in Elsie, Michigan, and later Harvest Pharmacy in Ovid, Michigan. He loved owning his own business and made strong, lasting relationships with many employees over the years. Dennis was a faithful deacon of Carland-Zion Brethren in Christ Church for many years up until his death. He was an avid golfer and often said he felt closest to God on the golf course.
