Dennis Alan Aldred died peacefully at home in the presence of family. Dennis attended Bradley University, graduating in 1962, with a degree in Chemistry. College also was the place he met his future wife, Betsy, whom he married in 1963. That fall, Dennis began working on his MBA at Illinois Institute of Technology and graduated in 1966.

Dennis and Betsy celebrated that accomplishment by purchasing a VW Bug in Stuttgart, Germany and touring Europe for the summer. That fall, he began working as a consultant for CorPlan, a division of IIT. Because of his familiarity with Europe, Dennis got many assignments of European hospitals and chemical companies. After several years, he branched off to begin his own company, Medical Technomics.

Besides doing studies and consulting, Dennis saw a growing need for disposable laboratory equipment and eventually opened a manufacturing plant outside Warsaw, Poland. In addition, he started another company, CompuCart, for importing computer desks for school and home.

During off times, he enjoyed being engaged in his daughters’ activities, and later, his four grandchildren’s lives. He also enjoyed archery, motorcycle riding, camping out west, hanging out with the York High School Class of 1954, and later, summers at the Lake House on White Lake in Michigan.

He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Florence “Betsy” Bliss Aldred; daughters, Jennifer (Pam Masek) Aldred, PhD., and Sarah (Chris) Aldred Fleege; and grandchildren, Lucas Fleege, Justin Fleege, Elliot Fleege and Olivia Elizabeth Berry.
