Dennis was always a positive, fun loving, carefree individual that people wanted to be around. We did not see him that often, but when we did, it was always a fun time -- numerous stories and jokes!! He will be missed, but always remembered.

Dennis was inspirational and a good friend! I think he used his saying "IT DON'T MATTER" when I'd have concerns and wondering what to do on my interior and exterior redecorating. . . .and you know what? He was right! It didn't matter, everying worked out at the end. Such a easy going guy!!! I shall miss him!

Our deepest sympathy to the Family. I'll miss him at the reunions, he always had funny stories to tell us... but he's in a good place now. Every time I saw him he was always upbeat, funny, kind, helpful. His personality lit up the room and made everybody laugh ! He will be sadly missed. God Bless
