Alan England Denison 2022

Alan died December 28, 2022 at Norwichtown Rehab and Care Center after a long struggle with Lewy Body disease.

He was predeceased by his parents Gilbert L. and Mildred England Denison. Alan is survived by his loving partner of 47 years, Larry Millhofer MD; his sister, Jill Johnson and her husband Merle; and nieces: Dana Durrua, Amy Benoit, and Kerri Johnson. Dorothy Millhofer and Lynne Millhofer Sheppard were pillars of support during the final years of his illness.

Alan was a graduate of UConn Storrs where he was President of his fraternity, Lambda Chi Alpha. He was a pioneer in leading the fight for gay civil rights in Connecticut. In the 80's he, practically single-handedly, ran a gay helpline, published a gay newsletter, founded a local support group and ran a gay bookmobile. He marched on Washington three times. Alan loved Broadway musicals, camp, dogs, cats, and gardening.

There are no calling hours. Burial will be in Maplewood Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the charity of one's choice.
