I just now found out Dennis' passing through USATT Insider's eulogy of Liz when she passed away.

Dennis' eulogy mentioned his brief stay at Texas A&M. That was where I first met him through table tennis. He and I used to play constantly in the games room of the student union, known as MSC, or Memorial Student Center. This was 1959-61 timeframe. He was so good at tt that I had never gotten a game from him. He had also worked part time at the soda fountain of MSC. After I picked my order, we would make dates to play after his shift.

To my disappointment, he left A&M. The next year, A&M formed a table tennis team to compete with other Texas college teams. I was No. 1 or No. 2 on the team and we went to Houston for the intercollegiate competition. To my chagrin, Dennis was representing TU there. Needless to say, A&M came out on the losing end between the two schools.

Dennis was such a gentle person, soft-spoken but merciless at the table.

Few years later, I met him at an US Open and noticed his missing right arm, lost to cancer, he told me. Now he played with his left hand. Though we never played against each other then, I am sure he could have whipped me just as well as with his right.

Seeing Liz and his deaths brought back nostalgia that was buried in my memory for so long.

For all these years, I thought he was still living and hitting that little white (or orange) ball.

I will sorely miss him.

I will miss my favorite table tennis rival always.
