Tenderhearted, would be the word I would use to describe my Uncle Dennis. My fondest memory is when I was around 3 years old, he came over for my sister’s birthday party and brought me a gift as well…it was a little red lantern.
I have attached a link with a few pictures of Uncle Dennis throughout the years.
Rest in Peace Uncle Dennis.

Denny,
We shared a lot of great times in the “good ole-days”, working on your cars (they are now all called Classics Cars) and cruising around towns in them. Finding our old Pan Head Harleys and then building and painting our custom HD choppers together in your dad’s shop. We were able to find a lot of fun things to do that left us with many friends and great memories of good times together. Trips up North, camping, car shows, the great inner-tube regatta down the Huron River, the gangs baseball games at Delhi Park on Memorial Day, fireworks at Burr Park, weekend parties and volley ball with friends and much more. Thanks for a life time of friendship and memories.
Rest in Peace Good Buddy!

Tim and Irene Eiseman

Our love to Gary, Gerry and families. We remember with fondness Denny’s summer stay overs at Grandpa and Grandma Pecks. We enjoyed contact with our”townie” cousins. Blessings and comfort to all of you.
