A childhood friend and the godfather for our son Whitey has been a source of information. Whenever in doubt, "ask Whitey" was our response. And, he always delivered! When we moved to Maryland he was my contact for news about Kimberly, high school sports and Wisconsin Badgers football and basketball. He also had good parking spots for the Wisconsin games. I assumed he would always be there. I will miss him! Even now he has provided news. His obituary indicates that a steak sandwich was his favorite food, but I always thought his favorite was "burgers at the Red Robin."

I feel as though I have lost a family member with Whitey’s death. And my very deep and heartfelt condolences go to the magnificent Sue, such a strong, loyal and loving wife, as well as Nicole and Reg. We will all be missing Whitey, not only for the fun friendships and great conversations, but the loss of a man who loved his locale and history. Whitey’s total recall of our youth, Kimberly’s folks and history , and just what it meant to grow up in the Fox River Valley after WW2 was a gift to all of us. Will always miss you, Whitey.

Dearest Reg, Mary and extended family - our deepest sympathy goes out to all of you in your time of grief. We had the pleasure of knowing with your father and know that he will be missed in our community. When our daughter was young she always referred to Dennis as "Mr. Vitamin" as she couldn't quite pronounce his name yet! That memory will always stay with us. Much love, hugs and prayers to you. - Lee, Joy and Isabelle St. John

My sympathy & prayers to Suzie & family. Whitey was a grade school & High School friend. He was always ready to talk to you & was kind always. Our class was close knit & we all knew each other well, a bonus of growing up in a small town. Please accept my thoughts of compassion for your loss. He was a gentleman & a scholar!!

Dennis was our first lawyer and I'm glad he made it a good experience. He was recommended by my mother because she used to babysit him :) . He was indeed a kind and gentle man, as well as a great and fair lawyer. RIP Dennis.

Dear friends, please accept our deepest condolences on the loss of your beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, colleague, and community member. He will be missed by so many!

We share in the loss of Denny, and want you to know how much we enjoyed and respected him. Ed has wonderful childhood memories of Whitey, and we both always looked forward to seeing him at reunions. I especially always loved the fact that he could only bring himself to wear black for Kaukauna events, never orange, but he was a faithful grandpa presence always. How blessed we all were to know him! He will live on in you all. He lived the life he wanted, and loved the people he lived it with, a fortunate man, indeed!

Dennis was one of those choir husbands who totally supported the choir. He was present at all of our masses, gigs, and parties. Dennis loved Silent Night at Christmas and preferred the “traditional” version. He also loved pasties with gravy. The Good News Choir disbanded back in 2014, so we haven’t seen Dennis and Susie as much since. We miss you both! See you in heaven, Dennis.

We have been reminiscing for the last 2 hours after reading that Denny has died. Yes, we still read newspapers...he would like that ! We hope that you all will soon come to the point in your loss where you can giggle as we have over this man's humor and his goodness. There are many memories, be it basketball with Bob, business related, family related, that bring appreciation. To this day the expression "if it tastes good, spit it out" is still repeated often in our household. We are so very sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Bob and Coke

What a great gentleman, a class act that most people can only wish to be brought up in the same conversation. I never heard him say a bad thing about anybody at anytime! I wish I could be more like him everyday
