Dennis Clifford Bischoff, 56, St. Leon, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013, at Good Samaritan Hospital, Cincinnati.
He was born Feb. 24, 1956, to George and Ruth (Alig) Bischoff.
He married Sandra Wiedeman Aug. 27, 1977, at St. John’s United Church of Christ, Penntown, and she survives.
He graduated from Southern Ohio Business College and, while still in school, was employed at Kroger as a meat cutter. He had also worked for Farm Bureau Insurance and Wendy’s before he found his true calling as a real estate agent at Bischoff Realty.
Dennis was an active member of St. John’s United Church of Christ and Harrison (Ohio) Rotary, and was very active in the Southeastern Indiana Board of Realtors. He enjoyed spending time with Sandra and their Mini Memory Keeper Business, and playing cards. He was often seen on the sidelines at his grandchildren’s sporting events, cheering them on and loved spending time taking walks with the grandkids. Dennis was a people person who never met a stranger.
