Dennis George DeClerk passed away unexpectedly on July 21, 2016. He is survived by his beloved wife of almost 33 years, Barbara Carey DeClerk, and by Barbara's four sons, Michael Carey (Michele), Patrick Carey (Tricia), Timothy Carey (Michelle) and Christopher Carey (Maren). He was "Grandpa DD" to 11 grandchildren and brother of Jacqueline Cornellie (Charles).
Dennis had a long career in the construction business, never really retiring from the work of building something from nothing. His first job was in his father's company, DeClerk Industries, and ultimately he was a business owner of his own. His most notable enterprise was Stress-Con Industries. Through these endeavors, he contributed to the construction of many great landmarks and projects in the City of Detroit and throughout the State of Michigan.
