Mr. Dennis was a Godly man who spent his life trying to be a disciple of Jesus and honor His command to help others. He grew up during the Great Depression and knew what it was like to not have anything. He had a huge heart and was always doing for others and giving to the needy. He loved people and just had a way of befriending everyone. He lived by himself until just after his 100th birthday. He even drove up until the age of 98.
