Condolence: Sharon and family you have our deepest sympathy. Denny was a one of a kind person. He had a hardy hello everytime we come home. He was a WONDERFUL example of how to be a great husband and Christian. The town of Armstrong has lost a valuable citizen. Leo and Anita

Condolence: Sharon and all who loved Denny...what a character that man was and what a hole it must leave in your hearts. He left us all with such wonderful memories and a lifetime of inspiration we could only hope to mirror. I am so very sorry for your loss but what a blessing he was to all who knew and loved him. I can only imagine the shenanigans he is getting into right now...our loss heaven’s gain. Find comfort in God’s peace.

Condolence: Sharon,So sorry to hear of Dennys passing.Sue was kind enough to contact me. I will always remember Dennys as one of my very best patients at the VA and to this day I use him as an example to some of my patients who are having a hard time adjusting to diagnosis that is not pleasant. He was such a great man enjoyed talking with him food and coming to the lakes and all the resturants.You are in my thoughts and prayers..

Condolence: Denny was an inspiration to all who knew him. I will always remember his determination to live life large even though he was paralyzed from the war he fought so bravely in. He is a true example of a person we all should be. He was also blessed with a great wife that stood by his side and took good care of him. My deepest sympathy to Sharon and all family.

It is with a heavy heart we send our condolences to you. Dennis, where do we begin, one of the kindest man we had the pleasure to know and appreciate and a loyal customer to Stan when employed by Kemna Mtrs.
Always with a smile and joking around with us, this man loved life and the people in it. Heaven will never be the same with his arrival, R.I.P. Denny, you will be missed by so many. Love and hugs Sharon

Condolence From: Geri and Gary Schirm
Condolence: We moved from Armstrong 30 years ago but this is one person that we always remember with very fond memories. Sharon and Denny were quite a pair, always smiling and laughing. When we visited back in Armstrong, Denny always had that big grin and a wonderful "hello". In our travels, we have never met anyone that impressed us more than Denny, he was such an exceptional person. Our prayers and thoughts go to Sharon and their extended family.
