    What an incredible loss for you, the family, and for all who knew Dennis. Such a sweet, kind man – always willing to help – and happily! I’ll treasure all his handwritten recipes for me (complete with cell phone # if I had a problem) – the many times he dropped off fresh vegetables for John and I – helping us strip wood floors and fixing garage doors – but mostly his unwavering friendship & bright smile. Miss him already…………

    Dear Korey and family,
    We have such wonderful memories of Dennis. One of our favorites is the following. When Darwin would be getting lights ready for concerts, Dennis would come in and stand in front to help check if lighting was right (because Dennis thought the shine from the top of his head was the perfect test!) He would come in a say, “Hey Darwin, are you ready for the glare test?” What a wonderful sense of humor. We are going to miss him so much. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. It was an honor for both of us to have worked with Dennis.
    With love and sympathy,
    Marlene and Darwin Nelson

    Dear Siltman Family,
    Our paryers and thoughts are with you at this time.
    Dennis was a wonderful person, always there with a smile and helping hand. We will miss his jokes and comments that he liked to share when seeing in him in the community or in the school. The School hallways will be little quieter know, but his presence will linger in all of us for years to come.
    Rest in Peace Dennis

    It’s truly sad to hear of such an amazing loss for all of us who had the pleasure of living with Dennis in what you can argue is the greatest time in our lives. While I have never had the opportunity to meet Dennis’ family, please know that you are in our hearts and prayers and we mourn for your loss. God Bless you.
