So deeply saddened by news of Denny´s passing. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his beloved Mary Lou, his children and all of his families and countless friends. Was privileged to have worked with Denny at the Glenview Park District Health and Fitness Center, and most recently blessed to work out alongside him early mornings and banter back and forth about our favorite topics - family, sports, and the goings on outside the gym. I´ll never forget jumping on the bicep curls´ station after Denny had finished his set, only to discover I couldn´t even budge the weight he had left set up. While you wouldn´t know it, at 80 years old he was as strong as an ox. Denny was the Salt of the Earth. He had not a single enemy - the ultimate testimony to a life well-lived. Fare thee well, our friend.

Mary Lou, you and Dennis were such bright lights in my early years of priesthood at OLPH. May Dennis be with Christ the Light of the World even as you read this expression of my sympathy and the promise of my prayers. +Wilton
