I am so sorry to learn of Dennis's passing. I haven't spoken to him in years, but my family spent a lot of time with him and his wife Diane when I was younger. He was my Godfather. Love and prayers and my deepest condolences to his friends and family.

We know words at a time like this are not enough and very hard. Know that we grieve with you for your loss and our thoughts, prayers, and empathy are with you, Diane, and Laura, and family. Dennis was a good neighbor, friend, and advocate for Brandt Beach and will be missed sorely by all. Our deepest sympathy and condolences.
