Got the call this morning while driving to NRG. Dennis will be truly missed by all.

I personally appreciate him getting my head back in the game. Without telling me, he made me realize to enjoy my days shooting at the range. He always asked " having fun today?". RIP my friend.

Thumbs up We Love you Coach Dennis. TC & MC

Hey DC,

I missed your call this week. I never got to say how much I loved you. How much I valued you and your presence in my life. How much I care about you and those who I have gone through my life with, like Jojo and the Girls, and Alan and Glenn and Robert Sr. and the entire family and Brain and Lamar, and Taranski, and Jimmy and Boyet, Ding and unckle Mike, uncle Dan, Rob Leathman, Wayne Garber, Edrick, Reggie and Tata and Ms.Val and Caloysk and Magie N Voigt, and Shawhan and Hawk...and the list goes on. To me, those were and are still the good old days. That was our life, that what we chose. Shooting and hanging out. And then shooing some more, after eating....
All those hours, all those rounds down range. All that advice. All that fun we all had. It ment a lot to me. It touched my heart. All the time on the phone. We wre going to set the world on fire one day

Who whould have guessd we'd up up at MIT together after rising to to the top in USPSA, GM status together....then MIT, man we had the world by the ba_lls. All that sucess AND the friends and friendships tht God graced us with. We were rich. Not in the monetary sense, but rich in the real sense, real friendship, better than gold and pearls.

I rememeber back in the day. At SWPL, shooting fast and hoping for ponts. Then you taught me to shoot faster and pray for points. You fixed my open gun and shotgun with target tape that is still in place to this day and working great. I'm amazed at your insight. I'm amazed at your life. I'm glad we got to share ours together. You never let to many people inside your life, If I never said it before, thank you for letting me in. Thanks for sharring our time on this earth with me, accepting me, just as I am, as I always accept you brother.

"1 Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things".

Now, as a man I can easily say, I love you brother Dennis.

John 3:16
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life."

I'm already looking forward to seeing you & me. In our new heavenly bodies, Slim for me and you

With love and respect, your friend, 2 alpha, alpha mike, alpha mike, charlie delta, 2 mikes......... TC & MC.

Wow...I used to BS with Dennis at the steel madness matches on Sundays and whenever I would happen to be out on a Saturday to help the SSA. I hadn't ever got around to trying IPSC. Dennis told me stories about shooting the big matches with all the other well know guys. He also told me a little about his work with training our armed forces. Last time we talked, he was excited about some carbon fiber accessories he was building for his race guns. Dennis was a very nice guy and was willing to help out the newer people to the sport. I didn't know him very well, but we seemed to share the passion for guns and always greeted each other when out on the range. I haven't been out to Raahauges in a couple months, so this is the first I heard about his passing.

He will be missed.
