Dennis Borghese - Memorial

For over 38 years, Dennis Borghese from The Pet Den in Commack, NY provided the finest pet care and products to customers all over Long Island and farther.  Dennis has touched generations of lives with his caring personality and selfless love for each animal and person he met every day.  He was truly a remarkable person who made time for all of his customers, family and friends whenever they needed.  When he had to close the Pet Den in 2014 it was a devastating loss not only to the community but to Dennis as well.  

Since his sudden passing from heart failure on February 21, it has been overwhelming to see the response and tremendous support from all who knew him.  With this unexpected loss, the last thing any family wants to worry about is finances.  Nothing can replace Dennis in the lives of his loved ones and those he impacted over the years; however, making sure that his family is cared for is a way we can honor his life and legacy.  We thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, in advance for your generosity and truly appreciate any and all contributions.  Please keep the Borghese family in your prayers and may your compassion be a reminder to all of the kind hearts like Dennis in this world.
