Denny loved to tell his stories, and he had a lot of them.  Many were comical, some adventurous, while others were shared to impart life lessons to those he loved.  He led his life authentically, enjoying what it offered, fishing trips, baseball, music, nature, gardening, and family.  He was blessed with an abundance of great friendships, faithful camaraderie, and some amazing adventures along the way.  His strong love of family, friends, and his overall enjoyment of life, as well as those endless stories, made the world a better place for those who knew him.  He was one of kind, well loved, and will be greatly missed.
