dennis fanucchiIn May, 1964, Angelo and Edna Fanucchi purchased Granada Bowl in Livermore.  Son Dennis, was just 19 years old, who would have believed that it started their son to a brilliant career that would span nearly five decades.

Dennis was extremely active in the Bowling Proprietors Association at all levels, local, state and national.  He served as president in the local and state associations and two terms on the National Board.

His dedication to the bowling industry harvested him a career of service awards which included BPAA Presidents Award, induction to the Alameda County Bowling Association Hall of Fame. In 1999 he received the “Decade of Service Award” from the International Bowling Industry Magazine and the Bowling Management magazine in their 10th Anniversary issue name Dennis in the top ten of bowling proprietors in the country.

In the 1990’s and early 2000’s Granada Bowl hosted 3 State Tournaments, each time setting records for the most entries from one center. The records still stand today.

Dennis, his sister Sandy and brother-in-law Tom Crane sold Granada Bowl in 2008. They are all enjoying their retirement years.
