The 6 years we had were much fun, exhilarating, exciting, and always full of surprises, but as life often does, things change, people grow up , grow apart, grow another human being. You were a perfectionist, I am still OCD in many ways, but I did learn many things from having known you way back then. I believe that we shall see you again in paradise on earth, where Rev 21:4 will be fullfilled. Then you will also finally meet your 2 grandsons, who will greet you with love and open arms. For the past will be forgotten. For other family and friends, find peace in Philippians 4:4-8.

Where do I begin? I met Dennis 40 years ago and was lucky to call him my brother-in-law. He was a great man, father, son, brother and uncle to many, he will be missed by all of us.

We maintained a connection over the years even when the “official” sister-in-law title was gone, I don’t think either of us ever felt we needed anything official, we were friends. He shared his struggles with me, he felt comfortable talking to me because I shared and understood his pain.

He’s left us mortals here but has joined his beloved mother, Betty, who will welcome him with open arms and he will continue to be loved for eternity.

RIP Den, love you!

Have to share this photo, he had a great sense of humor...”helping to build the wall”.

— So, like Joseph Gill, I had the great fortune to meet Dennis while we were working as photographers at Boeing.

Never could I have asked for a better friend, nor did I know a kinder person, who was so positive and generous towards everyone he met. I'm sure many people feel as I do!

Dennis, I will always miss your great humor and the many jokes we shared together. Say hi to "Okanogan Jerry" in the sky for me and thank him for letting us use his character greetings when we called each other after not talking for a while.

So long brother, please smile down on us mortals as you will always be fondly remembered and cherished!
