Dennis, you and Sherry where missed the day you left Sav-on. I will always remember the first time I met you .I'm guessing early 70's. You where such a cutie I was embarrassed to go in for my scripts..that was when it was Jacks sav-on on the bottom of the hill. sI still use sav-on. I have alot of memories but to many to write. You where family to my family. You where always happy to help everyone. you had a heart of gold and where always extremely informative ,had a great sense of humor, I never thought you had a bad day! you always made people smile! You will never be forgotten Rest In Peace my friend you where a remarkable human being! Dawn Dougherty Murray

Dennis, you will be deeply missed. Will never forget the lake days. The dinners, barbeques, hanging on the dock, bar hopping on the boat, the "B" cruises, watching all the kids at the sand bar. I know you are met by many that have passed before. Marie
