My Great Brother Denny was always there for me through his and my lifetime together. He was 12 years older than me but we got along great together. If I every needed any help and support he was there for me. I remember when Him and joy came out to see us in Idaho a couple of years ago we had a great time and that was the last time I seen him. before he passed. He will be greatly missed Love you my Brother always.

With tears and sadness I write this after learning about Dennis passing away. Even though it has been so many years ago that I last saw Dennis, I remember well the sound of his voice and the way that he would phrase his words. He was a kind and thoughtful man. I hope you are gaining strength to move on and move forward. Love you.....(DK)

When I look back on our life together,he was a great provider, wonderful father, loving husband, and awesome grandfather. We had such a fulfilling life together. I remember the holidays and vacations we spent together as a family. I was so blessed to be able to spend the last fifty years with my best friend. He will be solely missed. His friends will miss having lunch with him and long talks and his choice words of wisdom. His grandchildren will miss his willingness to listen and help out when ever needed. His great grandkids will miss his kisses and hugs. I will miss having my best friend by my side. His daughter will miss his advice and guidance. You will always be loved and never forgotten my love.

My Dad meant the world to me. He taught me to be self sufficient. I think he knew I would need everything he told me. He told me he was proud of me. The way I was able to make a life for me and my kids. He told me that God gave him the best daughter. He was my hero. His family and his love for God were what was important to him. I will miss being able to tell him what funny or cute things my Grandkids said or did. But I know I have the greatest angel looking over me and my family. Fly high Daddy. I love you.

Dennis was and will always be loved far beyond any words can ever describe. He devoted his life to his family, friends and God. He was always there for his family through hard times and would never turn someone away. Dennis was a hard working, dedicated and strong man who was never afraid to express his individuality. As i grew older he not only took care of me when i needed him but was there to talk to at the end of a long day. He always gave me his honest opinion and advise, even when it wasn't always asked for (*laugh*) but in doing so not only helped me in difficult times but shaped me into the woman i am today. His strength carries on through me which then will be carried on by my children. And even though Dennis didn't always show his emotions on the outside i know that not only myself but his family was loved more anything.

Dennis was an amazing grandfather, he was always there to listen to me and did his absolute best to understand me and my point of view while also holding respect for our differences. He was always so nice and willing to help me if i ever needed anything no matter what it was, his legacy to me will live on with his huge selfless heart and all the good he did. He taught me the great importance of family and how we should always be there for each-other no matter what happens, no matter the hardships we faced that we should never turn our backs on family.

My grandpa was a great man. He was a hard worker, faithful, respectful, and a generous person. My favorite memory with my grandparents was the first time I went to church with them. I was truly inspired by his love for Jesus Christ just in the way he worshipped him and talked about him. From that day I accepted Jesus into my life and was later born again. I will be forever grateful for that seed he sowed in me that day. I want to thank you for being such a wonderful person to me, your family, and friends. One day we will meet again in heaven but until then I will pass your wisdom down to my children and future grandchildren. I am going to miss your laugh, your advice, your passion, and most of all your smile. I love you so much.

Dennis,
May you rest with our Lord. You were taken from this Earth too soon.
I had the pleasure of getting to know you over the last few years and you're an amazing man full of wisdom and knowledge.
My prayers are with your family during this difficult time.
