From: Joan Bellis Mar 6 2020 12:05PM What a unique individual.Endlessly curious-just enjoyed finding stuff out.You could ask him about anything and it wasn’t new. Clever, kind, handsome and funny. And real.Raising him must have been a hoot-with a string of “uh-ohs.” No way it wasn’t interesting. How proud his parents and family must be of the way he conducted himself. Very few could suffer so many overwhelming setbacks and keep a brave face.Love for others prompted that brave face. He loved and was committed to Dee from teen-age love “on.”He adored his boys and spoke about them with great pride. Always.Love made him courteous in the give-and-take of conversation.And it was central to his closeness to his whole extended family. As I understand it, that crowd-HIS crowd, is unmatched for excitement and fun. Someone really good is gone.And he was a fine,fine person to have on this earth. Of highest quality. Knowing him made us lucky people. Me,Elwyn,Ian and Gabe...allloved him dearly. Dearly. Thank you for your time here, Denny, we are better because of it. Joan
