Den and Jan were the best “bonus” parents that I could have ever asked for... Having met their daughter, Sarai, in my earliest years of elementary school and becoming an “adopted” member of the Spohn family, I was privileged to know Dennis in a way that many did not. He was an amazing man with a sharp wit and refused to take no for an answer. He instilled a love and appreciation of beautiful automobiles in me and could spend hours talking cars with my husband, as it’s a shared interest. He took immense pleasure in the little things... tinkering in the garage, enjoying the afternoon sun with his dog and faithful companion [Scout], going for a drive in one of his beloved hot rods or just watching the kids play. One of my favorite memories was the day we brought my brand new 6 day old grandson to his house for him to meet- he was all smiles. He loved my family as his own until the last and I will forever cherish the memories we have together... Uncle Dennis and Aunt Jan, because when I had my oldest daughter they were way too young to be grandparents according to Jan, are together again and watching over all of us. I love you, and while I’m sad and missing you, I know that you’re not in pain anymore and for that I am grateful and it makes my heart feel just a little bit lighter. Til we meet again, Dad...

I have known “Spohnnie” since we were kids. I have been keeping him in my prayers for sometime as I knew he was suffering. Another Vietnam Veteran passes on as his war never ended. Wishing him peace in the after life.
