I was always happy to work with Denny at the Dubuque Works, as stated in his obituary, you knew how he felt, he didn’t sugar coat anything. I always appreciated Denny’s support of UAW Local 94, he was a great representative for his fellow employees. I hadn’t seen Denny for a couple years and wondered how he was doing. We all hoped for the best for Denny and admired the way that he handled his health situation.

I’m out of the area for the winter or I would be at the service, I’ll remember Denny and his family in my prayers. Dan White, Past President of UAW Local 94.
