You don't know me from Adam, but I went to high school with Dennis (Big Daddy "D"). I haven't seen him since the day we graduated from high school but he has never passed from my memory.
Even in high school he stood out as a leader - quarterback, baseball pitcher, class president. He was focused, intelligent, close to a few, known and admired by many and made being on the honor roll look easy. He was a great dancer and had a style and way of being that was unlike any other.
It is a shock to those of us who knew him to hear of his passing - he who was so vibrant and full of life. I appreciate being able to see his life through the pictures you posted and it is good to know he found for himself a life-long love and created such a beautiful family.
It was an honor to know him and my hope is that these thoughts about him bring you joy.
