I only met Dennis once, my son and I flew to PA a few months ago and purchased Dennis's 1969 Hurst / Olds. What a class act, we could tell that he wasn't feeling the best, but he smiled and made us feel comfortable. Just remember Dennis you can ride with me ANYTIME! Now your pain is gone and you are in good company in heaven. REST IN PEACE Dennis. YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED!
