Dennis Michael Stralina was born April 15, 1960 in Chicago, Illinois to Fred and Georgianne (nee Kelly) Stralina. He passed away on June 9, 2019, just a few short months after being diagnosed with brain cancer (glioblastoma).

Everyone who knows Dennis knows he was a printer by trade. Dennis followed the family footsteps and started his printing career at the age of 18 and continued as a printer for the next 40 years. If you took time to truly get to know Dennis, you quickly learned printing was merely his occupation and a means to earn money and pay the bills. Dennis was all about taking care of his family. Dennis’ true vocation in life was being a father, husband, son, brother, friend and of course, a lifelong Cubs fan.

Dennis is survived by his wife, Maureen (nee Dolan), his children, Michael (Stephanie) & Susanna (fiancé Christian Meyer), his mother, Georgianne Stralina, siblings, JoEllen (Terry) Moore, Therese (Larry) Griffin, Mary Alice Stralina, Jack (Cary) Stralina, his mother-in-law Patricia (Bob) Hill, sisters-in-law Colleen Dolan, Kathleen Dolan, Eileen Dolan and brother-in-law Kevin Dolan as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and cherished friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Fred Stralina, his brother, James Stralina and father-in-law, Calvin Dolan.

Services will be held at St. Isidore Church 427 W Army Trail Rd Bloomingdale, IL 60108 on Friday, June 14, 2019. Funeral Mass at 9:30 a.m. with interment immediately to follow at St. Isidore Cemetery.

Dennis was a guy at work that would always acknowledge people with a friendly hello. He couldn't say enough good things about his family. He was proud of every step they took in life and always looked forward to the next adventure that was waiting for them. He was a great person to know will surely be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family.

It is a real honor to have Dennis as not only one of my closest friends, but a brother! I have never heard him say good-bye, he always said "See ya next time..." See you next time, my brother...
