Dennis you will be missed by more people then you know. We cherished living in the same house as your mom, Debbie, Dawn and you. We also cherished the good times in Yonkers at the fields watching soccer, T-league, softball and baseball and all of the events that the Boys and Girls Club sponsored like the summer picnic/fair and the Halloween Haunted House. Rest assured that you will live on in the hearts of many. To the family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. May God wrap his comforting arms around each of you as you go through the grieving process. Our love is sent to each of you.
John and Sandy Werner.

Dennis you were among the many who helped me on my road to recovery and my walk with God. I will always remember Our time at Dunklin, the FARM, and our friendship as we continued on. I pray God bless and keep his children, comforting them. Dennis was always expressing how proud and how much he missed them while apart. See you in Heaven my friend! - Bill

Dennis was my childhood best friend and first love. I will always remember his chapped lips and crazy sense of humor. As of late, I have enjoyed chatting with him about his walk with Christ and his love for his kids. He will be greatly missed and always remembered.
