"Hi there Joe and Randy,
I was sorry to see your dad had passed. I was shocked to realize that he has lived right across the street from me. The side of my garage faces his place. I never met him, but we waved a couple times. His neighbor to the north had told me his name was Dennis. I even stepped out when the Rescue arrived. I knew ?Dennis? had passed, just put it all together a couple hours ago. Wish I had known. Take Care and feel free to stop over. ?
"I worked with Denny at RoJohns in the early 1970's. Great guy, friendly to everyone. He was extremely proud of his family, always sharing what Judy and the kids were up to."
"Denny always treated my brother and I like we were his own kids.
Our Uncle Denny was truly special!!
He will be greatly missed!
Heart felt condolences to the entire family."
