I know Dennis will be missed by hundreds of people from BIW. Respect, is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Dennis. In my 23 years in dept. 19 I worked for many different supervisors, I have to say he was the one that I liked and respected the most.. SO sad to learn of his passing, we lost a very good man.
