Denison, 73, was found yesterday in the kitchen of his home on the John Tears farm in Benton.  Denison, who lived alone, had not been seen around for the past several days and neighbors reported his non-appearance.

Under-sheriff,  Walter Clark was called and the body of Denison was found lying on a couch in his kitchen. A wood fire in his stove had been burned out for some time.  Dr. Rolf Carow, Keuka Park, coroner's physician, said death was due to heart attack. Coroner Vick Winship released the body to Thayer funeral chapel.

Surviving is a sister, Miss Minnie Denison of Geneva.  Funeral will be held tomorrow at 2 p. m. in the Thayer funeral chapel. Rev. Francis W. Glenister, of the Baptist church, will officiate.  Burial will be in Briggs cemetery, Benton.
