Dennis C. Bramos, age 86, died peacefully on Sunday, July 16, 2017 at St. John Hospital and Medical Center in Detroit. Dennis was born on June 3, 1931 in Detroit, the son of Constantine and Julia Bramos.

As a teenager, Dennis worked at his father’s restaurant in Detroit as a short order cook. On July 22, 1946 he enlisted in the US Army at the age of 15. He worked as a cook in the Army and received the Army Occupation of Japan Medal and World War II Victory Medal. He was honorably discharged on December 8, 1947.

When Dennis returned home, he worked at US Rubber (Uniroyal). In 1958 he started working at Kroger and retired in 1994 as the Co-Manager of the Kroger store on Harper at Old 8 Mile in St. Clair Shores.

Dennis’ hobby was fishing—he loved to fish! He was devoted to his grandchildren and enjoyed all of their activities. He spent many hours watching their sports games. The family liked to go on long car rides, vacationing in Florida (where he would fish) and going to the pool.
