Obituary for Denise D. Fanzo
Fanzo, Denise D., of Centennial, Colorado. Beloved wife Donald Fanzo. Denise passed on September 20, 2015. She was 63.

Denise was born in Emmett, Idaho to parents Jack and Ida Holbrook. At the age of 5 the family moved to Ketchikan, Alaska where Denise dreamed of traveling the world and made her own clothes to keep up with fashion on the "mainland". After completing high school and giving birth to her daughter, Denise moved to Washington State.

Denise held many jobs over the years starting out as a key punch operator and ending as an Information Technology Manager. It was through work that she met her "Sweetie", Don. After a brief romance, they married on January 14, 1983 in Seattle and enjoyed 32 years together. During this time, they lived abroad where they were able to fulfill her dream of travel, spent time in the Lake District of England and enjoy vacations to their favorite spot in Maui. But above all else enjoy each other's company.

Denise was an avid reader, a history buff and enjoyed genealogy. She knew a little something about everything and was a wealth of information. Her family has a saying that, "If we don't know the answer, ask Nana, she will know." And chances are she did!

Denise was a woman of faith who demonstrated unconditional love to her family. She is an inspiration to us all in the courage she displayed over the past 16 years. She always wore a smile and genuinely cared about others. Denise was a sweet, kind and beautiful soul who is already deeply missed by those who knew and loved her.

Denise is survived by her loving husband, Don; her daughter, Tami; "her boys" (grandsons), Carson and Landon; her mother, Ida; brother, Greg; nephew, Ryan and niece, Bridget. She is preceded in death by her father, Jack.
