Obituary: Dennis Kodesh

Dennis Kodesh died at home March 15, 2020.

Dennis Kodesh, 78, died at home March 15, 2020, surrounded by three generations of family. He is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Marilyn; sons Brad, Neil (Shanee), and Greg (Elissa); brother Eric (Tessa); and five grandchildren: Morris, Orly, Henry, Solomon and Flora.

Dennis was born Sept. 27, 1941, in Johannesburg, South Africa, to Edith and Harris Kodesh. In 1984, he emigrated with his wife and children to Atlanta, where he rooted himself in the Jewish community and developed lifelong friendships with other South African emigrants.

An avid reader, Dennis passed along his love of learning to his three sons. In his later years, nothing brought Dennis more joy than spending time with his grandchildren. He was a devoted husband, caring father, and beloved zayde.

Due to the health crisis, the funeral and shivah period will be held in private. Dennis will be honored with a public memorial service at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Congregation Beth Tefillah or Jewish HomeLife. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
