Wilma, Joe, Lurissa and all the grandchildren he was so proud of,

We were so sorry to learn of Dennis’ passing. We have been gone for two weeks or we certainly would have been at the funeral home to pay our respects. I worked with Dennis for all of his 24 years and he was the most dependable and talented guy there! We sure missed him when he left.

Our deepest condolences. May our Lord and Savior bring you comfort and peace.

Denny told me one time that I played the best tambourine (in church). I loved his sense of humor!
