We played in the band together at Easton some of the best years of my life. For some reason he was nicknamed "The face of intelligence " Sorry for your loss.

Denis was my neighbor and friend. He always had a smile for me. Every week he would cut his grass and I would stop and talked to him. I always enjoyed our conversations. I’m gonna miss you old man, may you Rest In Peace in the Glory of our Lord.

I have very fond memories of Denis during our years together at Warren Easton. He was one of my husband Gordon Bahan’s best friends. They played in the band together which was one of his favorite things. He was a special person that was always kind to everyone. He will be missed.
