So sorry to hear of the passing of Denny. I haven't seen him in many years, but from the photos, I would have known him anywhere. Looks so much like his dad. The Kempf's were neighbors and Denny was a playmate. A funny memory from when we were kids. Denny found keys to one of the sheriff's cruisers. He was about 12. I hopped in the cruiser with him and we went up and down the alley by the Sheriff's office, giggling all the way. My sympathy to all of the family!

Joan, Denise, Greg, Rob, sorry to hear of your father's death. Denny was a wonderful dentist and friend. An appointment with Denny was always painless because of his great jokes and stories. Your family was an important part of our life and our trips to Put-In-Bay were memorable experiences. Thinking of you and sending good thoughts to all of you. Sincerely, Dick Elsasser

Having gone to dental school with Denny and then to have him as our family dentist in Elyria, we have many years of jokes and stories about our families, Put in Bay., his tales and adventures. We even shared a front desk person in Barb who worked both offices ;and our love of OSU football. Joan was in dental wives with Judy and so we are very saddened by the loss of our colleague, our dentist, and our friend. To Joan and your children and grandchildren, we have placed you in our prayers. Bob and Judy Skillicorn Elyria OH 44035
