Dennis loved to tell this story about me: Early in my career, when I was responsible for Direct Mail at the Trump Taj Mahal, let's just say there was a little mix-up with the mail files and the wrong direct mail offers went out to about 100,000 people. We caught the error too late and had to spend a few thousand dollars to send out a correction. The mail was late and we definitely had a dip in slot revenue for a few days. At the time I think we thought it cost us maybe $100,000 in lost revenue. Dennis called me into his office. I thought for sure that I was going to be fired. I went in there accepting responsibility. Much to my surprise, he began the meeting by saying what a great job I was doing! I told him that I thought he was going to fire me. He said, "I can't fire you, I just spent a half of a million dollars on your education!". That was 20 years ago and I've heard him tell the story 2 dozen times, and every time the cost of my error went up. The last time he told the story I think it cost the Taj $5,000,000!
I always appreciated the fact that Dennis gave me a shot. He was one of a kind and I will definitely miss him.

Dear Aaron and Gomes family. Please know God is with you and your family always. I am so sorry for this tragic, unexpected loss. I have had the honor and pleasure of knowing Aaron since 2005 at The Mirage. I am sure Dennis, god rest his soul, could not be more proud of him and all his family. Aaron talked so much about his father, I feel like I knew him as well. He had the most loving father a person could ask for like I did. Anytime I have mentioned the name Dennis Gomes to anyone, honor, integrity, honesty, caring, and respect are what I hear ALWAYS! True visionaries of gaming, and of this world are few and far between. While he will be missed, he most certainly will never be forgotten.

Dear Barbara,
Words always seem inadequate at a time of such boundless loss. Howard and I are so very sorry. May the beautiful memories of your life with Dennis and the love and support of your family and friends provide comfort to you.
Fondly,

I think you know by now Dennis was --by a million miles--my favorite casino executive ever. My respect and admiration for him on a professional level knew no bounds, and on a personal level--well, he simply was one of the best people I've ever had the privilege of knowing. I will never forget him...

Larry brought Dennis to my Mom's house in LV for Thanksgiving many years ago.
Dennis loved my Mom's pumpkin pie, and talked about how good it was. He knew me only a little through Charleen, but he liked me. I had a black belt at a young age. Dennis had his also, or was near receiving it. We shared this in common. He told Charleen he respected me for my achievement, and I respected him for his. I know how intimate Charleen and Larry are with the Gomes family. And Jamie and Jordan, and I feel for all of you. The loss of Dennis Gomes hurts everyone, even those who knew him through others. He touched my life and many in a positive way. He was a friend to all.
