I've worked with Dennis at ODW. He was a good man. I'm sorry for your loss.

You knew my parents before I did. You and your wife (Theresa) had a baby shower for my mother when she was pregnant with me. I had my very first boat ride at only a couple months old on your boat. I had my first bonfires at your house and my first smores. I remember standing to close to the bonfire, roasting a marshmallow and the fire hurting my eyes so your sister Donna covered my eyes and helped me finish making my smore. I remember playing hide and seek in the dark running back and forth between your dad's house and yours with Brian, Daniel, and a couple other kids. I remember alot of good times spent at your house when I was little. You were such a hard working and sweet person. I will keep these fond memories and cherish them always. Rest In Piece Dennis Fugate
