Dennis was one the most considerate, thoughtful, sweet, understanding, and lovable guys I have ever met. I have many memories of him that are all cherished memories. Elsie was a wonderful addition to our extended family. Love and heartfelt sympathy to Elsie and the family. I know he is in a better place without pain and in the arms of our Savior.

My thanks to Larry Knisley for informing me of the passing of Dennis. I can't believe it's been 59 years since we were together but my time with him was incredible because he was a special student. I was his band director in 1961-62-63 and first memory was assessing student talent level and Dennis was the pillar in the percussion section! He was also the set drummer in our jazz ensemble. He was so positive and always had a smile. He was a mentor to the younger percussion students as well and made my job as a young band director a lot easier since percussion was not my forte. Over the years i have often though about trying to get back together but wasn't able to pull it off and now, will be looking for Dennis after my time has passed. Best wishes to all in his family and have you in my prayers. Dennis was very, very special. RIP Sir!!
