became good friends with Dennis in the early 70s when we were in the tullahoma national guards Always a good person and always seem to be in a good mood. Came to see him on different occasions when i needed my riding mower worked on and parts for my mower when i did the work myself..He also sold wood for fireplaces and wood heaters.Bought a truckload of wood and he helped me load it on the truck.I appreciated that very much.I have good memories of him and he will greatly missed by all of us who knew him.
