Dennis was a kind and wonderful man of character. I learned much from him by the positve attitude and approach he took with all the challenges he faced. He left a positve mark on all he came in contact with during his life.

Dennis and I served together in the 101st Airborne Division. Dennis was a medic. Frequently we would drive together from Ft Campbell to Pittsburgh. I remember on one occasion, we happened upon a horrific automobile accident. As I pulled the car to a stop, Denny grabbed his medic bag, jumped out of my car and provided immediate medical assistance to the victims until the Civilian medical personnel arrived. That’s the kind of guy he was, level headed and always ready to take charge. Rest In Peace Brother, until we meet again on the other side.

I met Dennis 10 years ago and he introduced me to the marketing world. His smile and his encouraging spirit I will never forget. I am blessed to know your beautiful daughter Caitlin as she is a reflection of you.

My prayers go out to each of you.
Heaven has gained another Angel to watch over us all. ❤️❤️
