It is with great sadness hearing of the passing of Dennis. He was a close colleague and mentor for many years at The Raytheon Company. His professionalism, integrity and quiet manner was just a reflection of his inner core. To his children I send my condolences, I know how much he loved them. I have written his name in the book of prayers at the Jesuit Campion Center. My admiration for Dennis is everlasting.

Cathleen, so sorry to hear of your dad's passing and sorry that I cannot make the funeral. I have fond memories of summer weekends spent at the Cape house. Your dad led such a rich and adventurous life surrounded by the people he loved most. I'm thinking of you, Marianne and Denny.

Dennis was always helpful to me when I was with the FBI and worked with him when he was at Raytheon. His shoes were hard to fill when he retired I succeeded him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
