Not sure what to say?

Lynn and family: So very sorry to hear of Dennis' passing. It was quite a shock reading of it in the most recent edition of The Broad Ripple Gazette.
I have fond memories of playing card games (Euchre?....too many years ago) with Dennis, my sister Janet and you, Lynn. When I "re-connected" with you briefly this past decade concerning your Montessori school, I regret that we once again lost touch.
Again, sincere condolences and very sorry I wasn't aware of his passing or...

Dennis and I were second cousins who did not know each other existed until the fall of 2004. Our grandfather's Omar and Edgar Boone were brothers. My wife Mary and I drove to Indianapolis to make contact and called him. He welcomed us into his home and invited us to a celebration at his and Lynn's church. I had the honor to have our picture taken together with me holding our great grand father Moses Boone's black power rifle which hung on a wall of his house. We helped each other join the...

Robert Dennis Boone was a wonderful guy. I know a lot of people called him Bob, and some Dennis, but Sparky and I affectionately called him Denny-Bob. He and Lynn were kind to me, accepting and generous. He chauffered my bride and me in the old Caddy to our wedding in 1992, just to be nice. I'm very glad I knew him, and sorry I didn't see more of him before he passed. I am deeply saddened by the news. My deepest condolences to Lynn and the family.

My first memory of Dennis is watching him roaring up to Briscoe Quad at IU on a motorcycle, and thinking "who IS that guy"? I don't recall exactly how we actually met but we became fast friends. We reconnected when I moved to Indy in 1975 and we began to hang out, playing cards, bumper pool and watching IU basketball. I loved him like a brother and know he is greatly missed by his family and friends.

We are so sorry for you, Lynn and Matt, Joanna, and John. Dennis was a beautiful, sensitive, and
compassionate person. We will be praying
for you all and may God give you peace at this very,very difficult time. Luigi and Celia

So sorry for your loss. I worked with Dennis at Enterprise he was a funny and nice man. Thoughts and prayers for his family and friends. Debbie Garriott

Dennis was present and welcomed my brothers and me into SAR in November 2015. I reflect on his pride in his family and his heritage, and remember him well.

It's hard for me to say "Dennis", since when I first met "Bob", as a Freshman back at Eastwood in 1966, "Dennis The Menace" was popular, so he told me to call him "Bob".

So ever since, I've called him "Bob", or "Robert". It became something of a joke after he decided "Dennis" was OK.

All of us have lost a great friend.

Bob and I were about as different as two guys could be, and a...

You will be missed my dear friend. You always entered laughing. Thoughts and prayers to Lynn & the kids. Darin & Joyce Ettner
