Uncle Dennis has been a part of my life since the very beginning and in my heart, he will continue to be a part of my family. He was always a source of happiness and unconditional love. The toys he would build for me and my brother as we were growing up were amazing. A good man, someone always ready to share in someone's joy and never one to bring a person down. I have nieces and nephews of my own now and I will strive to be as great an Uncle to them as he was to me.

One of my most memorable moments was when Dennis was Santa Claus and showed up to our house. I was very young and did not know at the time it was him. I fully believed he WAS Santa. It must have been because he had that jovial spirit and twinkle in his eye bringing joy and magic to my ❤️

Dennis is the eldest brother of the nine of us and the love of his life Dora always has been and will forever be his guardian angel! He will be so very missed and even though this earth has lost a Mr. Claus and Angel, we can only imagine how the angels and our Lord who now surround him, will rejoice in his love of life with humorous stories no matter how difficult the time and his creative ability! If there are any cars, woodworking, drawing, coloring, Christmas decorations or anything needing repair in heaven or just an angel or otherwise in need of encouraging words or funny stories to cheer someone up, they, as have we, will forever be blessed by his presence. We Love You Den Den and Dora, so very much! Deb Drinkwater-Hanrahan & Families
