I want to send out my prayers to the family of Robert Dennis for your loss. When I first heard the news I was sadden. Robert was more than an outstanding Marine, he was a great colleague, husband, and friend who had convictions beyond any person I've ever met in my lifetime. When I first met Robert at Camp Johnson, I realize we both shared the ideal of Family First! Robert believed that the family must be right before the Corps, and his positive values resonated with all that met him. As a retired Marine, I reflect on the life of Robert and realize that God blessed us with angel who wanted to help those who are in need. I pray that God Bless the family of Robert Dennis. RIP Robert, we miss you!

To The Dennis Family, I was so saddened to hear about your loss. May your special memories bring you comfort during this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, and I'm so sorry for your loss. Robert was one of my Corporals at 2D ANGLICO, it was a pleasure to have served with him. I can still see that grin...
Rest in peace my "Angilcan Brother".
The Final Salute
“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.
This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to MSG Robert Lee Dennis, Jr. our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Robert. And to Robert it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during Operations Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom and other deployments while serving 20 years in the U.S. Marine Corps. Robert, you are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot and a Marine warrior: courage, commitment, generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace. Semper Fi.
On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Robert's family and loved ones.

Rest in peace Robert, you're paid in full.
