There are so many memories of Denny I could fill up the whole website. He meant so much to me as a dear friend and someone you could get solid advice from. He told you like it was. My sons Garrett and Silas really enjoyed going up and talking to him they looked up to Denny so much. Denny might not knew it but he taught them so much just by listening to him. There was alot of times when Walter would mow grass and be gone for awhile I always knew he was at Denny’s talking so I always asked when he came home how he was doing. I will miss him and I know my Walter and the kids will also. My prayers go out to Sue and the family that they find peace in this time of sorrow. Get your wings Denny you deserve them and try not to give God a hard time.
