Dennis loved cars and it didn’t matter if they were model cars or real-life size, but his favorite make of car was the Chevrolet, which earned him the nick name Mr. Chevrolet. He loved cats and if a cat showed up on the doorstep Wendy knew there was a new addition to the family. Dennis could be described as meticulous, passionate, good hearted, and of course funny. What Wendy loved most about Dennis was his heart for people. His greatest love was spending time with family and friends making memories to be cherished for a lifetime. Dennis also had love and respect for the men and women who served our country past and present. He never missed an opportunity to shake a hand and give thanks for their service.
