Denny was Bobo when we paled around in 9th grade.  He was a really good guy and friend.  I saw him at our 40th Reunion and he was still a good guy and good friend.  May he rest in peace.

How shocked and sadden I am to learn of Dennis's passing way too soon. Dennis was

quick witted and always had a wonderful sense of humor. Thanks for making me smile

Dennis. Blessings to you and your family.
