Dennis was my PA at Dr Tolivers' office. I loved that ol' curmudgeon! He had a wicked sense of humor, knew his stuff backward and forward and cared for his patients greatly. It was an honor to know him.
Dennis, I shall miss you, say hi to my Dad for me. You two can argue and swap tall tales again.
Hugs

Dennis was my friend and mentor. He has helped shape who I am as a Physician Assistant. I was fortunate to spend one month with him during my year of clinical rotations as he precepted me. I learned so much medicine during that time and today still use what Dennis taught me. You will be missed my friend. You have touched countless lives, mine included and I am a better man and PA because of you. Dennis knew how much I loved and respected him. Now you know as well.

I am so terribly sad to hear of Dennis' passing. For nearly 10 years I've been blessed to know Dennis as a medical professional, a caring and compassionate man and proud American. Dennis always greeted me with a warm smile and a funny joke. He cared so greatly about his patients and always gave them the best care. I will miss him very much and send my condolences, thoughts and prayers to his family and loved ones. He spoke of his family often and loved you all very much and was incredibly proud of you all.

I knew Dennis and called on him for almost two decades. The care he showed for his patients was awesome. He had a great sense of humor and was always ready to hear or tell me a joke. He will be missed by so many Medical Professionals and Patients in our community. He served our country and helped to provide the very freedoms my family get to live under. Godspeed Dennisuntil we meet again

Dennis and his father enjoyed many hours of playing pool together at his father’s home. His father really liked German chocolate cake. When he became ill Dennis made sure he had his special cake every day.
May you Rest In Peace Dennis. Thoughts of comfort to the family.
