Dennis became my handyman after being recommended to help me finish up some things in my home to put it on the market. We soon became friends and shared many stories with each other and similar beliefs. He treated me so fairly in all our business dealings. More than that he was so kind and always came to help me in a pinch. I appreciated him and wanted to make sure he always knew that. My condolences to the Schwader family! He was a great man and will be very much missed.

Dennis was so full of life no matter the hardships that came his way! He loved helping people and tried to see the good in all! He was always excited whenever someone else accomplished something! Just down right good people! I’m proud to say he is my friend . We would paint, wood work, shoot guns and sometimes just speak what was on our minds ! I know family and friends were everything to Dennis. My condolences to his entire family! I’m truly gonna miss that guy!

I am heartbroken to hear of the passing of a dear school mate to me. Dennis graduated a year before me. He lived around the corner from me. We became good friends and I will always remember him picking me and my friend in his hot rod to take us to school when he saw us walking. I also remember going to his house and meeting his parents who were so fun and kind! He was a great guy and friend! RIP Dennis! ❤️
