    So sorry for your loss and for those of us classmates/friends feel some of your pain. I have great memories and good times with Dennis. When I had my 65 Corvette he was driving west of town on 36 and wanted to see how fast we could go! He handled the 4 speed like a pro and yes we were flying, loved the smile on his face, a fellow Vette owner and lover❤️ See ya on the other side..Aloha, Judi

    Betty I’m so sorry to hear of Dennis’s passing.
    He was a soft spoken laidback guy who’s company I enjoyed.
    You and Dennis where both loyal patrons when I was running Fleetwoods.
    Dennis would always stop in for a few after work beers and then he would order a pizza, from Freddy’s, to take home for his dinner.
    I always order his “Gleason Special with Sauerkraut” every time I’m in Seneca.
    He will not be forgotten.
    Rest In Peace Dennis
