  1. Prayers to the family of Dennis. I remember him in his junior high years. From the skating rink and (where he excelled) and meeting up with him on his bike. He was wild and adventurous along with fun and exciting. He would try anything at least once. Sometimes it worked and other times it did not! I saw him a few times later on and he seemed somewhat reserved but his eyes still show some of the young mischievous charm. Rest In Peace Dennis. Hope you can speed skate your way through Heaven!

  2. Only one word to describe Dennis, ornery. You knew where you stood with him, and he pulled no punches no matter who you were. He lived his life the way he wanted to. We’ll miss ya buddy, and thank you for donating his organs, Diann. It helps make a hard time a little easier knowing you’ve helped someone else. That was a truly selfless thing to do. The Old Pub keeps getting more and more lonely.
