Dennis and I worked together for many years at Elco. He always had a way of finding something good in everything. We were also friends away from Elco and I remember working with him on a few of his many building projects and afterwards we would have a cold beer together. Deb and family, so sorry for your loss and you are all in our prayers and thoughts. RIP my friend, you will be missed.
