I’m so sorry to read this this morning. Dennis was such a great guy. So many laughs shared on Saturday afternoons and during Griz games. Always a competition to see who had the whitest whitewalls on the Cadillac. Many Saturday morning out with Brillo pads scrubbing so at 10 am when I would see Dennis and Birdie the whitewalls were perfect!

Rest In Peace my friend
