I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I knew Dennis from his golfing at Monroeton. He was a kind person and a good friend to everyone out there. He was always smiling and just enjoyed being able to play. He will be greatly missed. Prayers to your family in this difficult time.

We have shared many hours at church services and warm and loving evenings at their home, where you were always made to feel welcome by Dennis, Alice, and the family. Dennis was a big kind-hearted man who would do anything he could for someone in need. Dennis loved his family dearly and fully, and his friends deeply, but mainly he loved His God and church family, and his Country in which he served. We will always remember his warm smile and kind heart. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. Heaven gain is our loss.
