Born & raised here in Revere, Dennis attended Revere High School & graduated in 1960. Dennis had a passion for music and playing the guitar and professionally appeared at many of the Lounges and nite-spots lining Revere Beach Boulevard. He played and performed under the “moniker”, “Danny Richards” until his late twenties. He began working with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, in several various capacities. As a toll collector, he was stationed at Callahan Tunnel for several years. He began a lengthy association with the Department of Correction within their transport unit as a driver for clients and later the elderly, retiring in 2000, at age 58 yrs. Since that time, he has been his Mom’s appointed, care-giver & advocate. His beloved & adored Mother, Nellie (Dotolo) Grasso will observe her 102nd birthday on February 28th, 2018. Mrs. Grasso’s ability to remain at her Revere home is due largely to Dennis’ unparalleled efforts.

Besides his Mom, he is the devoted father to Lisa A. Lowell & her husband, David A. of Raymond, N.H. & Carla M. Grasso of Northwood, N.H. He is the cherished grandfather to Richard P. Lowell & his wife, Brenda of Concord, No. Carolina, Steven A. Lowell & his wife, Michelle of Port Charlotte, Florida & Christina R. Lowell of Raymond, N.H. He was the dear brother of the late Geraldine M. DeSisto. He is also survived by eight (8) great grandchildren; Austin, Mason, Brandon, Ally, Autumn, Reighna, Aiden, David and many cousins.
