I, too, enjoyed working with and knowing Dennis for many years at Lockheed Martin. He could always make me laugh and despite health issues, was always positive and cheerful. He loved his friends and his animal family, and I loved to hear him talk affectionately about his dog, WooWoo. He will be missed on earth but welcomed in Heaven.

Our condolences to Pat and the rest of the family.

God seems to take the "cream of the crop" too soon! Dennis was a great team mate at Lockheed Martin and always someone of the highest ethical character. His work and leadership had a lasting impact on LM and support of the products we produced to support our country and those that protect us every day, Most importantly he was a great friend and team mate. God Bless!
