Wow! Hard to believe he is gone. We had fun in classes together. Though he didn't agree with my view on certain subjects we respected each other's right to their opinion, an especially rare trait in today's world. Class of 1970 has lost one of their spiritual leaders. It is a sad day...

I was saddened to hear about Dennis' passing. I will miss seeing him at the class reunions and the Old Timers Picnic. He always had a passion for people, and it showed in the path he took in life. -- Earl Midlam
