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.
