Dennis Michael Corso

24 octubre , 19515 abril , 2020

Dennis Michael Corso, 68, of Bloomfield, died peacefully at Saint Francis Hospital Sunday, April 5, 2020. He was born October 24, 1951 in Hartford, the beloved son of Charles J. and Nesta (Cerasole) Corso. He spent his early years in the South End of Hartford and then moved with his parents to Rocky Hill and in 1982 he became a resident in HARC’s first group home in West Hartford. Dennis was the joy of our lives. He was the ultimate love giver, enjoyed meeting and greeting people and relished entertaining his extended family at family gatherings by leading sing-a-longs of classic songs as well as his improvised variations. He thrived under HARC’s loving care and prospered many years in their supported employment program at the Legislative Office Building. Dennis loved going to work, participating in Special Olympics, weekend get-a-ways and summer stays at Camp Horizons. But he always enjoyed returning home to his loving housemates and group home staff who allowed him to live life to the fullest. His unconditional love and generous spirit enhanced the lives of all he encountered. Dennis is survived by his brothers Thomas C. Corso and his wife Karen of Avon and Robert A. Corso and his wife Linda of Scottsdale, AZ; his niece Kara C. Nelson and her husband, Scott of Glastonbury and nephew Christopher T. Corso and his wife Lauren of Canton and his great nieces and nephews: Connor, Jared and Brett Nelson and Elizabeth, Charles and Melissa Corso. Due to the current health care crisis, all services will be private. A Memorial Mass and celebration of Dennis’ life will be held at a future date. Memorial donations may be made to HARC, Inc., 900 Asylum Avenue, Hartford, CT 06105. To share a memory of Dennis or to express condolences, please visit www.desopofuneralchapel.com.

I had my 2nd interview at HARC back in 1996 for dinner at Dennis apartment in Rocky Hill where he lived with his condo mate, Ricky.
Dennis was the ultimate flirt. Not sure when he started being called 'The Love Doctor' but it fit. He had a charm that could melt your heart and hook you with just one of his smiles. I watched it happen on many occasions - total strangers in a waiting room or in the community just hooked in a second. He was irresistible.
Ask me to tell you the story of my first Holiday Party at the Rocky Hill condo in 1996. Pure Dennis.
All the Heart Throbs in Heaven have some Major Competition for the Lady Angels attention now!

Dennis was one of the funniest and most loving people I have ever known! My life is richer for his presence in it! He danced with me at my wedding! One of his hugs could instantly turn a tough day around! His family embraced the gift they were given and Dennis did not disappoint! My sincerest gratitude to his family for sharing him with all of us!

Corso Family,

It was with great sadness when I heard of Dennis’ passing. My son Jason spent many happy hours with Dennis, at camp, HARC events and across the condo as friends. He was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed.

Tom and Robert and family,
It was an absolute pleasure to be Dennis' supervisor at Asylum and more importantly his friend. He brought joy, laughs, and hugs to all those who knew him. Over the years, I would see him at the State Games playing soccer. It was like we were still at Asylum...laughing and hugging.
He loved you all dearly and spoke of you fondly. If only every family could having such an open and loving family member as Dennis❤
