    I worked right next to Dennis for about 4 years, He had the best laugh. I couldn’t help but laugh along because it was so contagious and jolly…
    He was such a wonderful person and all of at FCDJFS miss him deeply.
    All our prayers are with the family. Not all of us are able to physically pay our respects, but we are with everyone in spirit as everyone says their goodbyes to such an amazing, beautiful soul…

  6. I will continue to keep his name on my lips, and his spirit in my heart. My prayers and condolences to his family. He had such a wonderful heart. I will forever remember his smile, his love of family, and growth. We have another angel.

    My heart is broken. I will forever remember Dennis from our days working at Central Community House. His laughter probably still can be heard in those walls. My condolences to his family. May he rest in peace and may perpetual light shine upon him.
