Denny completed his formal education at Nansen Elementary School and Percy L. Julian High School. He continued his education by attending the Chicago Fire Department Academy. Upon completion of the academy Denny began his career as a Chicago Firefighter. He really enjoyed working as fireman and advanced to Lieutenant.

Denny met and married Kimberly and to this union two children were born. Denny loved playing baseball and was coached by his dad. He also had a passion for bowling, traveling, fishing and cars.

Denny was known for his caring nature, infectious smile, and cheerful spirit. He had friends that were like brothers to him. Denny had such a humbling soul and that’s the person he was, loved by many.

Denny made his transition to eternal life on Saturday, February 13, 2021. His beloved mother Delaine Bright and brother Andrew C. Freeman preceded him in death.

Denny leaves to cherish his memories two children; James A. Bright, III of Alsip, IL and Delaine K. Bright of Spring, TX; father Arby James (Vendella) Bright of Chicago, IL; three sisters: Terry Bright of Alsip, IL, Diane (Milburn) Sims of Bolingbrook, IL, and Tamera (Hosea) Germany of Forest Park, IL; one brother Jeremy Bright of Chicago, IL; two aunts: Diane Dillard of Chicago, IL and Paula Dawkins of Grand Rapids, MI; three besties forever: Derrick, Ernest, and Sean Jones; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

His legacy is the joy and laughter given to each of us throughout his 56 years. Today, there is joy in our hearts because Denny has been elevated as our guardian angel.

Denny gave us a wok for a wedding gift. He would always ask if we were using it. It’s been 23 years and we’re still cooking in it. We’ve definitely gotten good use out of it. Thank you so much brother Denny. Best wedding gift ever!
You will be missed dearly. Gone, but you will never be forgotten. Memories of you will always and forever remain in our hearts.
Rest peacefully in heaven!🎈🕯❤️🕯🎈
