So glad we got together for our fortieth reunion this summer and had such a good time. You're the first of our class to leave us, but you will not be forgotten. Keep on truckin', Dennis!

I will always remember Dennis for his zest of fun in life. He could take a less than fun situation and make it the best of it. I always admired his ability for "street sense", which was making the best of situation by thinking out side of the box. Maybe he thought outside a little bit to far sometimes, but never less, a quality that many may not have. I hope his family and friends will remember him in their hearts forever. God Bless.
