    My sympathies to the family and friends of Dennis. I knew Dennis from Crystal Sugar 1974 to 1976. My Dad knew Dennis as a customer at his laundromat in S Fargo and my Dad loved talking baseball and politics with Dennis. My brother-in-law also worked with Dennis at Crystal Sugar around 1977-78 and they became friends. Dennis was easy to become friends with and I would have liked to play baseball with him in his prime. He was and is a good man.

    We will miss this wonderful Uncle very much. His love for family will never be forgotten. He only takes the best, and now he has Dennis! Love you Uncle Dennis!

  5. Dennis you will always be remembered for your kindness. Your pranks and the happiness you bought to our family. Will miss you.

  6. We used to take our bicycles to the gas station when we had a flat and he would fix it for free. Meant a lot for us because we rode bikes 24/7 back in those days.
