I have so many fond memories of Uncle Denny. He was such an incredible and lighthearted man who brought so much joy to the family through the years. Growing up, I always enjoyed celebrating family occasions and holidays at his home with Aunt Linda - so warm, busy and full of their family and friends. He will always hold such a very special place in my heart. I send love and my deepest condolences to Aunt Linda, Matt, Andrew, Doug and their families.
