We are so sorry for your loss, Debbie. Dennis was a special person to us at Fred's Frozen Foods back in the 70's. He was fondly addressed as "Kutie-Pie" after a retail treat by a couple of our southern sales reps. Yet we knew Dennis as a very deliberate hard working sales manager with national accounts expertise. I am so happy to had chance to visit with Dennis and Debbie in late January 2020 just as COVID19 began to invade our country. God blesses Denny as he has entered the Gates of Heaven. God bless you Debbie for taking outstanding care of this man for the past 34 years. With respect and love, Don and Addy Miller, Tucson, AZ.
