Denny was the best neighbor anyone could imagine to live next to you. We were very fortunate to have that distinction over a decade ago. Anything that was not working right he was always there next to me figuring out how we could get it done. This lead to a wonderful friendship that continued well after we moved away. He was a man of service and gave me a great example of what being a Christian was all about. I loved the man like a brother and will cherish the time we got to spend with him. We were very fortunate to have met him and may he Rest In Peace. I’m very happy that he is now with his beloved Pammy. They were quite the team. Thank you for your service to all you crossed paths with to make this a better world. Love you my brother!
