I worked with Dennis for quite some time and talked to him just a short time ago asking for his help and, of course, he was always willing to do that. Thank you for sharing that great video. I learned things about him I did not know. My biggest revelation was the great "Family Man" that he was. He will be missed by so many. Prayers to all of the family.


Dennis was a great friend but he was also a great teacher. He taught a lot of young people to be carpenters. If he liked you he would go out of his way to help you. Dennis help me more times than he or I could remember. I have known Dennis for over 30 years.he will be truly missed.
Dennis give Mike a hug for me and save me a seat. Until we meet again.

Dennis the Menace-was my nick name for him - he was always a blast to be around on the course. Dennis and Barney made a lot of clutch shots and we all laughed. He loved his family BIG ! His memories will keep our hearts warm forever. Love you all.
