  1. Dennis Quinn was a warm, honorable, and compassionate human being who gallantly fought his illness for 11-1/2 years and never complained about his condition. He worked for the same firm for 47 years (even though it changed ownership several times) and was an ambassador for the parking industry and City of Chicago. He will be missed by his family, friends, business associates and peers in the parking community. The world is a little darker today without him.

    Below is his obituary:

    1. John well said. I worked with Dennis back in the mid 80’s and found Dennis to be very pasionate about not only his family, but his job. He was truly a company man. I learned a lot about the parking business and how to handle many personalities in respect to employees and clients. I played a number of rounds of golf with him while enjoying many family activities over the years. His laugh was contagious. Please RIP Dennis!
