I am so sorry for your loss. I lost touch with Dennis when I moved to Pittsfield back in 1985. He was in my wedding and I have many good memories of him. I just heard and missed the services. God Bless.

Suprised and sorry to hear of the death of Dennis. I enjoyed working with him at Ball & Socket. My condolence to his family.
So sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, I just read about Dennis' passing in the paper and am not able to make his services under such short notice.
However, I do wish to share with you the undeniable fact that Dennis was always a good friend to me and our group as we grew up during our childhood and into young adulthood as well. Though somewhat on the quieter side (and probably not such a bad trait to have as he brought a sense of humbleness to us all)Dennis had a very friendly nature about him and seemed to be smiling a lot when he was with us.
Of course, one of his best attributes in my personal opinion was his sheer natural athletic ability. As a former athlete myself, I can assure you that the combination of speed, agility and incredible leaping ability that Dennis possessed did not go unnoticed by his teammates and certainly not by the opponents we faced either. I cannot even begin to tell you how many times at the conclusion of a basketball game I would overhear the other team and some of their fans talk in amazement how our team had a guy under 6' tall that played like he was a 7 footer, or something to that effect anyway!
Unfortunately, the last time I saw Dennis was during the services for his Mom and it was quite apparent that he was deeply affected by her passing. I trust that they will now be reunited together above in Heaven.
With Sincere Sympathy,
