Uncle Dennis, you were one of my favorite Uncles. Wishing we didn't live in different states so we could of spent more time together. One thing I loved about you is that you were always up front and real. You told exactly how it was. Some of my greatest memories were of when we would come to Ohio during the summer to stay with Grandma and we got to go to your restaurant , Spykers Townhouse. Also the times you and Aunt Gerri would spend with us at Pine Lake. I will hold all the memories close to my heart forever and never forget you. Take care of all our loved ones who have gone before you and give them our love. In my heart forever RIP 💔🙏👼

Uncle Dennis was always my champion as a teenager. He taught me karate as a young woman. He had a sense of humor that could make you belly laugh or want to dump water on his head
Love you and will miss you so much. You and Uncle Ron try not to torture my mother too much
