  1. Our deepest sympathies go out to Inge and Gine and all of Dennis’ relatives. Dennis was a wonderful person, husband and father. Unfortunately, we only met him in 2003 during our first visit to the USA. Inge lost a warm-hearted companion. He leaves a big gap. We will keep him in our hearts.

  2. Dennis was my shift supervisor when I worked security back in the late 80’s. Dennis was always helpful and friendly with a smile on his face. Rest in peace.
