I have so many wonderful memories of Dennis, especially when he and Dennis and Michelle lived near me in Marseilles in a beautiful two and a half story home that I used to visit often. My favorite memory was when Dennis spent literally two days putting a hard drive in a computer that wasn't made for the change. I realized then that computer guys are different than the rest of us and that the challenge was what made the task interesting for him. He was such a good friend and we would talk for hours at his house over the wonderful tea that Michelle would make and bring up for us. There were also wonderful Rotary memories when Dennis preceded his wife Michelle as President of the Marseilles Rotary Club sometime in the 90s. I got to be secretary for both of them and jokingly called them the "Dynamic Duo" or "Batman and Robin," but they truly were superheros in reference to their concern for the Marseilles community. It is an incredible shame to lose half of the wonderful relationship that Dennis and Michelle had and everyone loses here, wife, children, grandchildren and friends, that is except heaven. Dennis is probably updating heaven's registry right now.

I will miss having him to tak to and get insight from on computer realted issues. He was the BEST Excell programmer I have ever worked with, and his passion for that was an insperation.
