Dennis loved life! An avid gardener, he entertained many passersby and guests with his plant knowledge. As a foodie, he could tell you the where and when about many great meals he enjoyed over the years. There was never a movie that he did not enjoy! His irreverent sense of humor and boisterous laugh entertained his family and friends at many gatherings.
