He was truly an inspiration to all who knew him.
Always mindful and concerned of others, Dennis put the needs of many above his own difficult challenges. His accomplishments, although usually silent, will continue to be enjoyed by many. Always filled will an over abundance of generosity (and just to name a couple of his local contributions)… Dennis built the deck and stairway on Burnham Drive in Arcadia, so that everyone could enjoy the beautiful Lake Michigan beach.
