Dennis was a kind man. He always had interesting stories about working in the extremely cold areas and was informative about how to dress for those below 0 temperatures. I always enjoyed talking with him and his wife Kat.

I was so sad to hear of the passing of a dear co-worker, Dennis. He was the only person older than me who called me Ms Phyllis. LOL. Was such a gentleman and always polite. Dennis was highly regarded here at Williams. We send our deepest condolences.
