In Memory

Dennis DeCarlo

March 23, 1958-March 18, 2021

Dennis DeCarlo’s recent passing was a surprise to many in our industry. His passion for the Fire and Life safety business was reflected through his countless years of volunteerism on the executive board of the Automatic Fire alarm Association of New Jersey. As treasurer through 2016, Dennis projected our state association with the title of Member association of the year in 2007 and once again in 2016. Dennis’s friendship and guidance will not be forgotten.
