  3. I worked with Dennis at PricewaterhouseCoopers when he was in New York. Dennis was an excellent accountant but, more importantly, a true gentleman. His job was not easy in New York but he took it on with grace and enthusiasm. He was an excellent trainer and developer of people who later had much success in the profession. Even in his late career, when he no doubt was experiencing great pain, he always had a smile and a kind word. He will be missed but he will be remembered.

  4. To Dennis’s Family,
    I treasure the wonderful memories enjoying time with Dennis and his family professionally and as friends. I met and worked with Dennis in Phoenix in the 70’s era and we quickly “connected” as both being Midwest farm country boys. We kept in contact throughout our varied careers with Dennis going to New York and then Marcus with his health issue and then Houston after falling in love with Rosse Mary and me going to Virginia and then Boston, then Omaha, then South Dakota. He was always adventurous….agreeing to go to a frigid November “big time” Cornhusker / Oklahoma game in Lincoln with me and loving the experience. It was a true pleasure to witness a positive change in his health and outlook when he met Rosse Mary.
    In short, a wonderful person. I was blessed to spend time with him.
    My heartfelt sympathy and warm wishes to Brian and Kerry, Rita, sisters Doris and Joyce, Rosse Mary and entire extended family.
    God Bless.

  5. Hi Rosse Mary. We never met but I wanted to tell you of the many years and times I spent with Dennis at C&L. Dennis followed me from the Los Angeles office to the Phoenix office in the 70’s and 80’s which was of great comfort and help. Dennis was always ready to help on any job especially under difficult circumstances in Phoenix. I also remember spending time with Dennis and his children. We were going to join Indian Guides but ended up with our own little group which we call Accounting Guides. Dennis was always loyal to the firm and his friends and is of the highest integrity. My sincere condolences to you and all of his family.

  6. To Dennis’s Family,
    I first meet Dennis & Family with my Brother John L. over a New Year Day
    get togather in there home in Phoenix. It was College Bowl Game Day and I
    remember there was a TV in every room of the house to view all the games.
    The food, laughter & warmth reminded me of the great Midwest hospitality.
    Every September my Brother John and I would venture off for a two week motorcycle journey to places we had never seen, on one trip to the Rockies
    Dennis offered the family Condo for a place to rest for a couple days.
    Such a welcome relief from the KOA campsites with warm beds, hot shower and such beautiful surroundings. My sincere condolences to you and all of his family.
