Dennis meant the world to me and my family. I was sorry to see him leave, but knew how badly he wanted to take care of his mother. Promising one day to return. He taught my son some wonderful things, like whistling while you work, which my son does. My children cherished his stay with us. He was a good friend, always there to lend a helping hand. His laughter was contagious and always had a kind word to say. We’ve known each other for nearly 40 years and my heart is heavy with grief. I loved him like a brother and the thought of not hearing his laughter, whistling or silly sayings seems so unreal. To his family I wish peace and healing light. He was one of a kind and will be missed by Syu many

We knew Dennis from our childhood. He was our neighbor, friend and was like a brother to us. Dennis had a way about him to make us smile, laugh and to heal our hearts when we were sad. Dennis, you may be gone however you will never ever be forgotten. We will have you tucked close in our hearts forever. Till we meet again. Ride in Peace our dear friend. Love Melody Perry and T.P.
