He went on to attend college at Umass Amherst, and had a career at Raytheon, and in his later years at the J.V. Fletcher library.
He had an infectious sense of humor and a genuine love for life that shown through in how he treated people. Each day was lived to its fullest with moments of joy for himself and for those he interacted with. He had a phenomenal taste in music, loved fishing, gardening, brewing beer and most of all spending time with his friends and family.
A celebration of Dennis’s life is being planned for a later date. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to the J.V. Fletcher Library Memorial Gift Account in his name. I’ll see you in the sky above, in the tall grass and the ones I love. The world is a little less bright without him here, you will be missed."
