Dennis Van Austin

Saturday, October 23, 2010
Dennis was my wonderful brother-in-law for more than 25 years. I have known him since he was 8 years old, when he and his 4 year old brother Greg would accompany me and his older brother, Dick, to the movies and ice skating. He was a fine, compassionate man, who held the family together during Dick's untimely death 20 years ago. The world was a better place with him in it.

Knowing Dennis has been one of the many blessings from my lifelong friendship with Michelle. Dennis was a part of many adventures throughout my life. Touring NYC, eating escargot, and loving Dr. Hook music are just a few.
Dennis could always make you feel like what you were doing was important and interesting. He was a source of love and laughter and he will be missed.

I will always remember Dennis and all of his wonderful stories and most of all I will always remember him being the one who introduced me to my wonderful husband. Thank you Dennis I love you and will miss you always!

Dennis was the most passionate man I've ever known. He was passionate about love, life, antiques, food, story telling, wine, outdoors, friends and family. Michelle was always his greatest passion of all.

The girls and I have fond memories of Dennis. We had great trips to Midland to visit his mother. We all learned a great deal from Dennis.

The last time I spoke to him was a couple of weeks ago. He mentioned that Dave and Nancy was on vacation for a month and how helpful they had been to him. Nancy seemed to have taken him under her wing and he enjoyed playing golf with her (when he was able). He also spent lots of time speaking of Michelle, catching me up on her and her job and how her employers treated her as family.

Michelle is Dennis' greatest legacy. He especially enjoyed her 'writings' (poems..etc) He laughed about how they could get on the phone and time would pass so quickly.

Michelle, I love you dearly and know this will be a significant void in your life that no one will be able to fill. You should find comfort in your memories and knowing how much he loved you and every visit, every note and every call was the greates gift you could have ever given him.
