I met Dennis many years ago when I joined the Centurion Cruisers Car club. He was one of the first members to warmly welcome me to the club. We spoke about his GTO. I could tell he was a gentleman with a caring heart.
About eight years ago, just a week before moving to Florida, I was a Lieutenant in the department of public safety in Brookhaven. One afternoon while on patrol, I saw a 1967 Chevrolet military police car driving down the road. I knew it was Dennis so I pulled behind and turned on my lights and siren and pulled him over. I got out of the radio car and I approached his car. I could see he was a bit nervous, I said Dennis it’s me Gene, I’m just breaking your chops . We stood on the side of the road and laughed and talked for about 15 minutes. He thanked me for showing up in uniform when he hosted the veterans Thanksgiving dinners. We left each other with a smile and a handshake, and I never saw him again in person. Although We kept in touch through emails over the years. He will be missed. Eternal rest grant unto him oh Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.

R.I. P my brother Vietnam Veteran, it was an honor to know you and I am so sorry to hear of your passing. We were fellow members of Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 82, many, many moons ago but kept in touch on Facebook. I will miss you my brother.

I am so grateful that you were part of my life. Playing music with you in The Brooklyn Time Machine was a great experience that I will never forget. We proved that older guys can still rock. I will miss you and will always remember the good times we had especially during our rehearsals and gigs. Someday we will rock again so keep your guitar in tune. You are my band brother and friend and I will never forget you. Jimmy the Reed Man.
