Our hearts are broken. It is so hard to imagine our lives without Denny as he was part of our family for many years. His love, friendship, compassion, ever-present support and on-going teasing will forever be part of us. We are thankful to have known Denny and shared so many wonderful times in his company.
I'm sorry that I won't be able to see and talk with my good friend Denny anymore. He was a big part of my life and I always enjoyed our visits. I'll always be grateful to him and especially honored to have been there the last time he told His story. I also want to correct the error in the obituary. Denny had 30 years years of sobriety. He got and stayed sober in 1989.
Denny was a special friend. We shared many lunches together while he was the maintenance supervisor at Boardwalk Apartments in Lawrence Kansas.
We remained in touch throughout the years and always had stories to share about our motorcycles and families.
My prayers are with the entire family.
Peace, prayer and light for Denny.
Denny hade been my sponsor since I got sober at Cherry St 07/15/93. 26 years

Denny was a good guy! I had the pleasure of knowing him and working with him for several years. He cared so much for other people, that's why he had so many friends. He will sure be missed. Love you Denny.
My condolences to all the family, especially Pam and Amy, who I met long ago when Denny was in Lawrence. I gave Denny some electrical work when he was first sober and was at the first meeting he held in his home at either Blue Rapids or Waterville, KS. Can't remember which town, but even the noisy coffee maker fell silent when he asked for a moment of silence-God's fingerprint. Denny's sobriety date was 12-31-88 and Kath and I went down to give him a 30 year medallion from the Manhattan, KS The Week That Was group- as he had requested- in early 2019. Denny had a contagious laugh and was a great story-teller. He made friends easily and helped many people in AA. Our lives were made richer by knowing Denny and for that we will always be grateful, but he will be missed. God bless and keep you Denny. Easy since i'm sure you are in heaven now.
He was a unique man; A blessing to many people's lives. He will be missed by many family and friends.
I meant Dennis,as the name I knew him by. We we connected about three years ago and talked about our memories of past.I miss your phone visits and RIP Dennis!
