I am sad to see that Dennis has passed. I took Tae Kwon Do from him and Linee. He was a good guy and it was a pleasure to have known him. I wish to express my condolences to his family. The world is a poorer place without him.

The world truly lost a Fantastic man in Dennis. I've known him since middle school.We worked together at Allied, General. I never saw him without a huge smile, and he always asked about my 2 kids even calling them by name. With his personality he made many friends, and I will always be PROUD to have been one of them. Adios Amigo.

Heaven gained a great man when Dennis arrived. It has been my pleasure to know him if only for a short time of his life. It was evident that he loved and cared for his family, each and every one. He was there whenever needed. He was a leader and example of what a man, husband, father and grandfather should be. I admire his fight with cancer because from the time he learned he had it until his body would no longer allow him, he spent as much time as he could with his family making sure they all had precious memories to hold in their hearts until they are reunited in heaven.
