I met Dennis through RTF. He and I spent many hours driving to and from RTF and ROC meetings. He always had a way of bringing my spirits up when I was down or bringing me down when I was worked up about something.

A truely good man.

I can't express my gratitude enough for the family opening the door yesterday to everyone. I left work at 5:30 and drove over two hours to go see Dennis and his family. They welcomed me with open arms and wanted to hear how everyone knew Dennis. For that, I am truely thankfull.

Dennis is a great man who touched and inspired a lot of people, I'm honored to have known him.

I will never be able to wheel the Con again without thinking of Dennis. He touched my life, and everyone else he came in contact with.
I know that Dennis no longer feels any pain, he can see 20/20 again, and he can skip down the trailer like a teenager.
I won't shed a tear of sadness for Dennis, as I know he is in a much better place....and I am sure he is already making friends...


You will be missed Dennis....but never forgotten...

I'm at a loss for words. I can hardly see to type.

We are all lucky to have know Dennis. He was one in a billion. I am proud to say that my children were able to meet him.

The respect an love we have for Dennis is unmatched. He has given so much to the trail, mostly by shaping its future by leading and "mentoring" the other users.
I would not be as involved or passionate about our land issues ( I wouldn't be who I am today) if I had not grown to love Dennis as my dear friend (and now Brother.)
That smile could always change your day...
I really have no words to explain how important he is in my life. Dennis we love you.
You got that right Sister, words are woefully inadequate. We are all blessed by the gifts Dennis gave each of us.

Memories amongst the tears.....

Dennis was many things to many people; Mentor, Teacher, Father figure, Friend, Brother and, to me, my Inspiration! I had the pleasure of meeting Dennis 7-8 years ago at a Rubicon work party. I was tired, dirty and complaining about one thing or another when Dennis made his way down the trail, offered me a cold beverage and pointed out how lucky we were to be working in such a beautiful place. "Beats workin'" I think were his words. Over the years he was always there with an encouraging word, a hand on my shoulder and a kick in the butt when I needed it. He never let his physical limitations hold him back. Even as his eye sight deminished and his legs lost strength, he soldiered on- never complaining. Yes, Dennis is my inspiration, my hero and my friend. I'm truely honored to have known this great man!
