I worked with Dennis at Handy Foods back in the early-mid 2000's, he was a really kind guy with a great sense of humor. I worked in the dairy, though I would always find an excuse to swing by produce to talk with Dennis. It was always a pleasure to spend time with him, and I'm sad to hear that he is gone. Much love to the family.
