    Really sorry and saddened by the loss of Dennis. It was shocking and unbelievable when I read of his death in the paper. Dennis was so pleasant and always eager to please customers as he practiced his home improvement skills. I initially became acquainted with him through his affiliation with the Bud James Construction Business. Dennis will be missed.

    So sorry over the sudden death of Dennis. I knew Dennis through his working for Bud Janes Construction Com.
    I did accounting work for Bud and knew Dennis well.

    Dennis and Bud did so many home improvemen for my wife and me. We could always count on a job well done. I will also miss our weekly meeting at the farmers market
