    Dennis was bigger than life. We could call him on a Sunday evening to fix something and he and Devon would come over. I am sure many others know what I’m talking about. When he came over, he would always tell us a something about Wyatt. He will be missed. It does not seem real. Thanks for being a great friend brother man.

    Dennis and I were friends almost 50 yrs. We met when we were 18 yrs old working at Milliken. We used to go to wrestling at the old auditorium. Played basketball together. He taught my wife and I how to water ski. He and Devon came by the house occasionally to catch up. This is tough my thoughts are with his whole family. I’ll miss him.

    We have known Dennis for over a decade and were so saddened to hear about his passing. He was just at our place last fall for quite a while building a storage building, so he is fresh in our memories. We could always depend on Dennis (and Devon) to do great work and take pride in doing so. Very often we would both talk about our grandkids and I know his were near and dear to his heart! His love for animals was also evident, especially Sassy who came along for the ride quite often. He certainly will be missed and we pray for comfort and healing for his family! God Bless Them!!

  • Dennis (Dink) was truly not only a cousin but a dear friend. We grew up sharing a passion for people and muscle cars. Our chosen careers left us with less opportunity to visit ….but then Dennis and his son Devon would come by to repair something or we would just stand around talking about old times…..or share a meal at Spice Diner. Goodbye for now Dennis. Love You from Danny and Linda Green
