Dennis loved his family and friends. He was "famous" for being a homebody, never failed to extend a helping hand, restoring cars, a talented furniture maker, playing his guitar and listening to country music. His love for planting flowers and starting up the pool for the season was an important part of his home; surrounded with beauty and the swimming pool he couldn't get enough of. He was an avid lover of "old cars" and was known for tinkering in his garage. To see the smile on his face when spending time with his grandson was just simply priceless. His face always lit up with a happiness we all hadn't seen in a long time; lil' man Gavin who made his days more complete from the moment he was born.
