I remember Mr. Dennis well. As a former student at Garretson, I recall how he always made us feel special and used humor to make his point. If he hadn't been a teacher, I'm sure he could have been a comedian. He made a positive difference in the lives of so many.
To Julie and Mr. Dennis' family,
Was sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
Mr. Dennis was a real teacher. He inspired many kids to be the best.Mr. Dennis taught my a uncle,aunt,brother,and sister and myself. He will be remembered for his personality and his beautiful smile and a love for his kids.
Mr. Dennis will be missed. He taught my a uncle,aunt,brother,sister, and myself and a host of others. Mr. Dennis had a great impact on many of us. He was a real teacher.
You were one of the best. I know that it was because of your that my graduation speech was chosen. May your teaching days never end....
Bill was my teacher at Garretson School in 1953. I worked with him in his walnut orchard in Alamo. He was a fine man and I remember him well. After graduation from high school, I served in the Navy for 20 years.

I loved you as a teacher and as a nice person. I appreciate everything you've done for us; as a teacher, a soldier, and as a great human being.
I want to thank you, Mr. Dennis, for all your excellent teachings. You were THE BEST ! I, too, was one of the members of your Knuckle Head Club. Adding your wit to your teaching made learing so much easier. God Bless you Mr. Dennis and Rest In Peace.
Thank you Mr. Dennis for being such a wonderful teacher. You and Mr. Gladstone were my very favorite teachers. I was a student of your's in 7th grade(1965-1966) at Garreton grammar school in Rodeo. 7th grade was a hard year for me as my father had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. You paid a little extra attention to me in knowing that. You made my days full of smiles with your humor and knuckle head club. I never struggled in your class because you made learning easy and fun. Your son Jeff and I would write each other little notes and we even sent a photo of ourselves to one another. This was all your doing of course because you knew it would also be a fun distraction from the reality of my home life going on at the time. It saddens me I never did get to see you again after those young years in school. You were never forgotten though. My condolences to your family. Rest in peace Mr Dennis.
My favorite teacher ever! (Garretson graduating class of '66). I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. He challenged us to learn but made it fun. He was a large part of my decision to commit my career to education. What a great mentor. He'll forever be remembered.

Thank you Mr Dennis for your service to our country and for being one of my favorite teachers ever!!!!! I was one of your students in Rodeo at Garretson and my family still speaks of you to this day. You were the best and I was fortunate enough to be in your "knuckle head club" You were an excellent educator yet allowed us to have lots of fun. We respected you so very much. I only wish I had stayed in touch or found a way to get ahold of you over the years. Rest in peace Mr. Dennis
Thanks Mr. Dennis for your service to our country. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends.
