I remember Denny as a very thoughtful, kind, interesting and genuine guy. Meeting him initially could have been awkward as our family visits to Donna's were special and, with the passing of Jerry, could have made it less so. We quickly learned that seeing Donna was only enhanced by seeing Denny. He would randomly show up in a roadster, or give you a tour of his property. Denny even encouraged my son, who was learning to drive, to go back and forth between he and Donna's properties. He had a magical ability to be there but not step on any toes or change plans. I always enjoyed that we would visit in midsummer and sit on the porch and chat even though it was hot. Plenty of refreshments and barbecue always made the evening cool down attainable. He was personable and optimistic. He always spoke well of others and I will remember him by his engaging and upbeat personality. l am sorry we didn't come back more in recent years and would have loved to see Denny coming across the field on an ATV again.
