Not sure what to say?

The greatest husband a girl could have, our life together was so wonderful, we had 55 years, 1 month and 17 days. We were very lucky in that time we Never gave up on our marriage or walked out on each other, for all those years we stood by each other. You were my one true love, right now my heart is hurting but I know you are at peace and waiting for me. We will be together again soon my love.

A good friend and a good guy. What fun we had. I know every time I eat a tenderloin I will think of you. Rest In Peace, Dennie❤

We are saddened to hear of Denny's death. We will always remember him as such a kind person and family man. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.

Our thoughts and prayers at this time . Dennie was one of Larry's best friends. Enjoyed our times at the Bunker Hill Drag Strip. We shared an apartment also for a short while. (He and Larry done these things.) May you rest in peace and one day you and Jane will be together again.

You were the best Grandpa I could ever ask for! You fought till the very end. I am so glad you passed on your strength to me! I will never forget our memories that I am so thankful for.. up till the last minute. Love and miss you forever Grandpa!!

Rest in Peace.
