Dennis Mockensturm

Dennis Mockensturm, age 69, of Maumee, passed away on Thursday, July 16 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio in Toledo after a courageous four-year battle with cancer.

Born in Toledo on August 25, 1950 to Kenneth and Dorothy (Sutter) Mockensturm, he was retired after many years at Yark Automotive. Dennis was a member of Northwest Ohio Street Machiners for many years as well as the Maumee Eagles. He enjoyed participating in car shows and cruise-ins.
