Dennis was born in Johnstown, PA on the 26th of December 1938 to the late John and Elizabeth (Galayda) Yamrose. He had one sister, Joanne (Yamrose) Murin who passed years earlier. His brother-in-law and dedicated life-long friend, Albert Murin still resides in the home in Johnstown; where Dennis grew up. His loving wife, Rosalie passed two and half years earlier in Fishersville, VA. Dennis graduated from Franklin High School in June 1956 and enlisted in the United States Navy on the 19th of June immediately after graduation.

Mike, Vickie and family,
My love and prayers to you all. Growing up with Denny and Rosie being best friends with my parents, Beulah and Sherman Cash, seemed we were always together. I have so many happy memories of Denny and his fun sense of humor. My your hearts find peace.
All my love,

My condolences to your family in this time of loss. I am afraid that I just learned of his passing and regret that I could not pay my respect, in person.
My name is Brian Craig and I hunted and fished with Denny, on many occasions. I first met Denny at Frank McCutchan's, in Rockbridge County, probably in the mid 90's. I was an invited guest of Jamie Curry with whom I attended high school. Jamie and I spent many wonderful days on Jump Mountain hunting with Denny and enjoying many great stories being told at lunch time or the end of the day. Jamie and I spent numerous nights out at the camp he had in Millboro with Denny, and fished many miles of streams and rivers together.
He was always a pleasure to spend time with and was a fabulous story teller. He was also a great host and always enjoyed feeding a small crowd. During the last several hunting seasons, it was not uncommon to get back to the camper and find Denny, smiling from ear to ear, with a great, hot cooked meal ready to eat. Denny being "in camp," whether as a hunter or just a welcome friend, always made time there more enjoyable.
I will miss seeing him and his great big smile.
