John and I thought about Dennis last evening. My heart is heavy. I still teach the ham classes to keep his dream alive. Every class I teach is for Dennis.

Didn't know Dennis personally, only seen him from time to time, but any time we lose a fellow member of the wheeling community it is truly sad my thoughts go out to all his family and is many friends. RIP Dennis, sounds like you were one hell of a guy. To all his family and friends reading this, I am sorry for your loss.

Only met Dennis one weekend; the weekend we hauled the materials in to Spyder to build the radio tower. He was right ahead of us most of the way in, towing in a trailer full of supplies. He scared us more the once with his CJ5 about going over. He never flinched. Got to know him better that night, and on the way out Sunday. He truly was a great man on all fronts.

To his credit, my 13 year old son says he wants to get his Ham license (a Dennis license). Is there a minimum age to get your license?

Dennis touched many lives, including mine. He continues to be an inspiration to many.

I didn't know him long, I wished I had the opportunity to.

As far as kids getting their hams... Jen and Eric Lillunds son got his when he was about 13.

I don't remember if I ever posted this..

I wrote it, but it never got printed becuase the magazine was going through a "transitional" period at that time.

I know date-wise it's a week early, but the Holiday weekend had me sobbing at my desk this afternoon.

I can't believe how much I think about him every day. Still. I can't believe this marks the fifth anniversary of his passing.

I think about Cheryl and Randy and the rest of the family, and catch glimpses of a Yellow Tux every now and then in town, always trying to see if it's Randy or someone else driving his Jeep in Auburn.

I never knew how much one person could have an effect on a life, many lives. I am still in awe of him.

I love you so much Denny - I pray you are watching over us all, and guiding us as needed.

Miss you so much...The Beebster

Yup...

I probably wouldn't be involved with RTF without Dennis. He'd call and give me pep talks on Trail Patrol...which got me more involved.

Was thinking about this yesterday, Kurt. Dennis would be real proud of how his trail looks.

I miss him too

Barb and I will be toasting to our good friend with a shot of Patron.
