Denny was the kind of person you were always lucky to have called your friend! My wife Theresa & I are from Illinois & met Denny a few years back at a little dirt track in Ohio. It did not matter that we were 3 states apart & only able to see each other a couple of times a year. We could pick up right where we left off that’s a sign of true friendships. Denny introduced us to his loved ones, Family & friends! Whom were all special & amazing just like Denny. Denny used to always ask Theresa if she was going shopping, what is funny is that while we were shopping for race souvenirs we would also run into Denny shopping as well. Denny we are so blessed to have had you in our lives we will miss you our friend but you will never be forgotten. Love you always Theresa & Casey

I met Denny a few years back at the Races and he was always a great guy to be around. When hard times would hit he would be there to give hope. I'm proud to say he was my friend and will be missed. RIP my friend
