Denny, So many times I would see your smiling face at Entex. You always had a hug and kiss for everyone.
My heart is confused and hurt for you.
Mike would have been devastated had he been here. Not knowing where he failed as a friend or boss.
The people you leave behind will forever be changed and the absence of you felt by all.
Rest easy, Debbie

I did not know you that well in the end
but if I had to find a word it'd surely be friend
and now you've flown off into the deep blue sky
leaving some of us to sit here and wonder why
no matter the reason i pray for your peace
with both hands clasped and down on my knees
you have many friends who will miss you forever
with memories of you we're sure to treasure

Goodbye Denny.. God bless your soul.

Denny worked for me for a short time at the Ramada. Every single day he came in with a smile. I struggled most days, stressed and overwhelmed, and he always came through with words of wisdom and comfort. His spirit will be so greatly missed. Rest In Peace, Denny.

May God shower you all with his strength, love and peace. Remembering Denny’s smile and charismatic personality makes me smile. I was so blessed to run into Denny a few months ago, not seeing him since high school. It was truly a blessing! Denny, enjoy God’s glorious love forever❤️

I can remember Denny Paul always making a point to try to see us while we were visiting there. Also, he frequently visited Pat when she fell sick.
