My deepest sympathy and condolences to family.
I worked with Denny for years and knew him as a kind and decent man. I always enjoyed talking with him and considered him a friend. He was a wonderful person and I'm sure he's been blessed with a place of honor in Heaven. Godspeed, Dennis.

What a great guy.

We had the pleasure of knowing him for several years and he always had a smile on his face with a wonderful attitude of being able to help when ever he could.
Heaven gained a great soul.

I'm so sorry to learn of Denny's passing! We worked together for a few years at Delco in Security. He was so much fun to work with! I have only fond memories of Denny and the pranks he played on me! Every morning I had a donut and coffee on my desk when I started work. At that time he had the dog shed, he would call "Joyzee" (as he called her) and get his grocery list for the way home. He was my best friend and I loved him dearly. May you find comfort in knowing he is with the Lord. What a kind soul and wonderful person he was.

Oh Kara and Leslie how my heart breaks for you. Your Dad was such a kind man with always kind words to be said. I would see him often at B&B and he always called me by name. I will never forget going over to your house as a kid and he razzing me. A kind kind man. My heart goes out to you both and your sweet Mom. Thinking of you all and praying for comfort.

As many others, I knew Denny from Delco, first as a guard then as a supervisor. He was a great man, always a smile and a positive word. And many jokes. Praying for his family and loved ones as you mourn. Heaven has gained a great guy. Memories are forever.
