So sorry that we've lost Denny! He was a life-long friend, teammate in several sports, and an all around great guy! He'll be missed!

We would like to express our sincere condolences to you and your family.

Denny was always a joy to be around. A true gentle man. I'm sorry for your lose.

My heart is broken. Denny spent many weekends at my families home when he went to Alabama and he was ALWAYs my favorite friend of my brothers. He was a kind and gentle man who will be dearly missed. Rest in peace my friend.

Loved by my whole family
