The family would like to thank Dennis’ special friends, Ralph Carroll, Richard Shaver, and Nelson Vest, who assisted him with many projects on the farm over the years.
To honor Dennis’ wishes, there will be a private graveside service for the family. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Riner Volunteer Rescue Squad for their dedicated service and compassion to the community.
