Even though I hadn't seen Denny for quite a while I will always remember him as one of my very best friends. He will be missed by everyone who knew him. I could tell dozens of stories about things Denny and I did together as I'm sure everyone else has their share too. I'll never forget him.


Denny proudly served his country
