    I worked for SAIC in STL from 1998-2003. During that time, I worked closely with Dennis and a few other USACE people. I always thought that Dennis was very sharp, and respected his opinion/direction. Sorry to hear of his passing. Condolences to his family.

    I remember Dennis always carried note cards in his pocket so he could write down notes during the day. He was so thoughtful trying to remember the little things.

    I had the pleasure of working with Lindy and Dennis acquiring their new Florida Home. I really learned a lot from Dennis' attention to detail. He wrote EVERYTHING down so he could do a THOROUGH analysis of the data. A very impressive man. The Halloween parties at their home were awesome. Life has cut his short. The memories will never die---God bless you Lindy and the surviving family and friends. We miss you Dennis!
