I had known Denny my whole life. We were neighbors and would go to Oak Knoll Park with his dad who would take all the neighborhood children. Denny was a good friend and,I am so sorry for his loss.

Dear family,

We are so sorry to hear of this sad occasion. May Jehovah comfort you all. I remember as a girl, spending the night with the girls and Denny and Sylvia coming home from a date! That is when I 1st met him. He was such a kind man and we look forward to seeing him again. Our love and sympathy to you all.

Denny was always so very kind to listen and share stories with me in my early adult years. His infectious laugh always made the stories so much better and funnier. He was a good man, and someone that I will miss. I only wish that we could have lived closer together as I would have loved to spend more time with him through the years. I am very saddened and will always cherish the memories that I hold dear.
Though our time together can only be measured in moments and our paths crossed but a few times, we were on the same journey and I felt like I knew him a lifetime. I will always remember you Denny, and may peace and comfort blanket your family during this time.

My condolences and prayers to the family. I worked with him at the Massillon Post Office and he always took the time to help me out when I was a new carrier. He was always so friendly. May he Rest In Peace .

I did not know Denny long, but I appreciated the time I knew him. He had a good sense of humor, which many may not have known. He loved the West, and as I was born in the West, we had a lot in common.

He will surely be missed.
