The last time I ran into uncle Dennis was about 10 years ago. I went to shake his hand which he promptly brushed aside accepting nothing less than a hug. It is a moment I have cherished since then and always will.
Until we meet again, Rest In Peace sweet man.

I only knew Dennis through work, however, he was always an upbeat, great guy to be around. He was always laughing and willing to help someone out.

Truly a good spirit. I am very sad to hear of this news.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends

Dennis was an amazing man. I worked at the subway on weber and kinzie for about 5 years 2 years ago. He was the first customer in the store every morning 7:30am sharp. Always smiling always happy even when you knew he was having a ruff time. He would sit in that back corner with his paper spead out enjoying his soup sandwich and coffee for hours. Taking the time to look up every once and a while to smile. He would pretend to be santa for my nephew who was 3 at the time listening to his christmas list and all his little boy stories. You made every day brighter. I knew I could count on seeing you. The last 2 years seeing him at the mall, on the bus and train and out for walks our talks were always genuine. He was a true kind soul that I know was always the real santa at heart. May you rest in the sweetest of peace dennis your always in my heart.
Thank you for making such an impact on my life and that of everyone who was lucky enough to know you. Mason will always miss his chats with santa.. :(

We were saddened hearing the news of Dennis's passing. Known him for years he attended alot of the gigs that I played. His love of music was evident! When Karan attended gigs with me Dennis would sit and dance with her while I played. Later in years Dennis's brilliant smile and AIR GUITAR that he always presented when we went to say hi at Zehrs always brought smiles and now wonderful memories! We will you miss you our friend !!
