Merciful Father, hear our prayer for Dennis and his family. Console us dear Lord, as we renew our faith in Your Son, whom You raised from the dead, strengthen our hope that he and all our departed love ones will share in His Resurrection, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.
Eternal rest grant unto Dennis, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.

Dennis will always be remembered as a class act and a true professional! He was an amazing resource for me when I entered the industry 15 or so years ago. I´ll never forget his patience, kindness, sense of humor and the straight shooter that he was! It was my pleasure to work with Dennis. Rest In Peace, Dennis! Loving thoughts and prayers to Peggy and Jonathan whom he loved so much!

I am so sorry to the family for your loss. I have fond memories of Dennis having gone through St Mike's with him. We only had nine boys in our 8th grade class. Dennis was a good friend and did many things together including playing golf frequently at Wampanoag GC just off of route 6. We also played a lot of basketball together. His soul is in my prayers as I say hello to him. Gary O'Connell
