I saw that Dennis passed away and I remember him from my military service locally. This was probably almost 45+ yrs. ago. I contacted Mike Goodman to make sure this was the Dennis D. Drenning I remembered and he said yes. I am very sorry for your loss. I live in about 12 miles out of Huntingdon Rt. 26

I remember Dennis was a very nice person.

DJ, Kim and family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Denny will always be remembered by me as one of the most supportive parents I ever had the privilege to work with in his children’s behalf!! Lol.. DJ I am sure you remember the stories... he was always positive and kind with a warm smile and welcome anytime I had the honor of seeing him. He will never be gone as he will forever be in your hearts and the hearts of anyone that knew him.
