I wanted share with the family that I worked with Dennis for many years at Overnite Transportation. We made a lot sales calls together and worked closely together on many different things that pertained to the operations of a trucking company over the years. Dennis was one of the best freight men in the business and if there was a Hall of Fame for Transportation Professionals, he would surly be a member. My condolences go out to the family. Dennis may you rest in peace. Rusty Murray
