I am deeply saddened to hear of Dennis's passing. Dennis and I were colleagues at Montgomery County. We kept in touch after his retirement. He spoke often about his family and his grandkids. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was a fun guy to be around. He will be missed by his friends and colleagues at the County!

Dennis was a wonderful, intelligent, kind man. He hired me in 1983 to start the Buffalo Telephone Company. That was a career of a lifetime. Those were the happiest days of my life all thanks to Dennis. He would hand out turkeys at Thanksgiving, weekends at Darien Lake,and lots of BTC celebrations. Dennis almost ran for mayor of Buffalo at one point. I will never forget him. To Judy and Dennis and Michael and Amy ---hold on to your memories and be proud of him
