I’ve learned to know Denny from our morning meetings at the coffee shop. He was very soft spoken and interesting to listen to his stories. We went out to dinner with Lin and Denny and got to know his family. He talked me into getting out of my comfort zone and go snowmobiling with him and some of his other friends. It really was an amazing and awesome time. All my photos were destroyed by the X-ray machine at the airport. Denny asked his other friends to share some with me. He was a Caring and Awesome Person to have as a friend. He loved his family and talked of them often. God just took a Good Guy Home and I Pray that he also helps the family and friends that feel Denny’s absence.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

We had a couple of crazy rides together on our Harley's. My prayers go out to your family. He will be greatly missed. Glyn Payton & family

Denny was an amazing man! A father figure and beloved friend to so many. I will forever cherish the memories created as a child when He and Linda opened their home to me for the summers! The corvette rides, trips to McDonalds... his amazing heart of gold! Truly an inspiration to all who were so lucky to know him! Love you all so much! #familyiseverything! Rita
