SHARON — Dennis J. Togninalli, 66, of Sharon Valley Road, died Friday, June 5, 2020, at Hartford Hospital.  Dennis was the husband of Kim (Breithaupt) Togninalli.

He was born in Great Barrington, Mass., son of the late Stella (Inferrera) and Guido Togninalli. 

Dennis and Kim were married on Oct. 27, 1984, and celebrated 35 years of marriage.

Dennis worked at Becton Dickinson Company in North Canaan. 

He was employed at BD for more than 40 years, working in the shipping department.

His professionalism and love of his community will be greatly missed by all.

Dennis enjoyed bowling, going out for breakfast on Sunday mornings, mowing his lawn and sharing photos on his phone with his many friends.  

However, his greatest passion was his three girls. They were his pride and joy.

In addition to his wife, Kim, Dennis is survived by his daughters, LeShawna, Tianna and Shanea, all of Sharon; his brother, David Togninalli and his wife, Roseann; and his nephew, Ryan, of Burlington, Conn.
