On January 3, 2017 Dennis was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. The past few months have been a time for all of us to grieve, but also a time for Dennis to celebrate his full life and reminisce with his family and friends. We have started this page to be able to provide updates to a large group of people, as Dennis was well connected with so many from all over the country. Please feel free to leave messages for Dennis and his family here. At this time his overall health has started to decline and it is becoming more difficult for him to respond individually and to have personal visits. We are hoping this page facilitates communication for those who care about him and want to stay updated regarding his situation.
