Sorry to hear of my old friends passing. Dennis was a gentleman in every sense of the word. Kind and generous, he helped me during my transition to the print business from broadcasting over 20 years ago. Denis always had a smile on his face and a positive word for those around him. That smile and British accent would light up a room when he entered. I have thought of him often since he retired and the sage advice he imparted on me over the years serves me well each and every day. Rest peacefully my friend in the Lord's hands. I know there must be plenty of crossword puzzles in heaven. My deepest condolences to his family.

Dennis was a positive and professional force when he worked with us at See Magazine. That impact was felt in the marketplace where he was loved and in the Company where he was a positive influence for change. I/we have and will miss him.
