I worked with Dennis since 1981. He was a good teacher and one of the best tour guides of the plant. His knowledge of rope making was one of the best in the industry. He was so detailed and thorough with his explanations, that some didn’t understand. I remember one e-mail that I was copied on and Dennis had a two paragraph answer to a question. The originator of the message replied back and asked Dennis to check a box, Yes or No. He was so good at what he did and he will be missed. I hope your fond memories will bring you comfort. Prayers for all the family.

Deepest condolences to the family and friends who knew him well. Dennis was a great guy- very knowledgeable and passionate about his job, as well as the scouting programs that he was involved with. I knew him through both of these, and I I now he will be sorely missed in these places as well as at home. Dennis always had time for questions and he taught me a great deal. It was an honor and a privilege to have known him.
