    I am sorry that I missed Denny’s obituary in the Fort Wayne Papers. Just read the notice in the Northwest News. I had many enjoyable and great times with Denny as a fellow member of Bishop Dwenger Class of ‘71. Wish I could have been there for the services. Gods eternal blessings on Denny’s soul and my sincere condolences to his family.

    Many times when I would pick up our heat treat at Precision,I had the opportunity to converse with
    Denny at length on various subjects. I always
    enjoyed these conversations and will miss him.
    His friendly attitude and willingness to help
    was a blessing.

    Denny coached my son for several years, and he became a better person and athlete because of Denny. He taught the boys responsibility, sportsmanship and what it really meant to be a part of a team. He will be missed, but fondly remembered by many.
