Dearest Denick Family
How blessed this world was to have such a man as Mr. D. Rarely do we see such loyalty to family, country, church, friends and those in need. A proud man he was and rightly so. I have had the privilege of his daughters friendship for over 50 years and will never tire of the stories, lessons and wisdoms passed on through her. God Bless you sir and thank you.
PS: Say hi to Mom and Denise 💖

Mr. Denick was a caring and gentle man who welcomed all. He will be remembered by me as someone who welcomed Drew's friends into their home with kindness. We are happy you will be at home with Mrs. Denick but sorry for the hole left behind with your presence.

I am so going to miss having fun dinners with him and always his big hug! I am so thankful to have known Jude’s Dad and his loving helping hands when we painted my house and he built me a pump house in my back yard as a surprise ! He was a thoughtful and loving soul and he surely will be missed! Now he is with our Lord and I’ll pray for him every day!

Dad was a dedicated Husband, Family man, and a Patriot. He loved his church and his heritage. American lost a real American Hero. I have been blessed to have him as a Father. He made me what I am today. So Dad, this is not a “goodby” but a “until we meet again” in heaven. I love you Dad.
