Dennis and I met when he worked for Diebold. He and I had lots of laughs and great lunches with other Diebold friends in the time I was in Atlanta. He was one of the first friendly faces as we were on a team together. We always kept in touch and reconnected on Facebook as well. Rest well my friend. My sincere sympathy to the family.

Some of my more fond memeries of "Daddy Dennis" are lots of Tetris wars and just plain hanging out as a kid. I have known this man since I was a Sophomore in high school. He has been a father like figure to me for most of my life, and we have shared many ups and downs. I will miss him greatly and love him more. I have had tons of good times with this man and his family. He will forever be remembered in my heart and soul. If you were to ask who one of the perfect men was in my life, Daddy Dennis is one of the top three on my list. My condolences and lots of true love to a huge part of my life. I love you all!!!
