    He was a great neighbor and so good to our son Brett. Brooks our dog I know will go to the fence looking for treats and bones he would buy for him. Dennis will be dearly missed.

    I was saddened to see that Denny had passed away. I have known Connie, Denny and the girls for quite a long time. Connie and I worked at Clarkson together for about 5 years. Rest in peace Denny

    My heart sank when I heard that Denny had passed. Enjoyed working with him in South O back in the day. Now at peace, God Bless.

    Lt Denny was the best boss to work with. We had many great days working at the Southwest Precinct. He would always show up and help. He is at the top of my best memories at the Omaha Police Dept My condolence to his family I know and feel this tremendous loss?

      Toss and I go back many years and he liked COnnie as I was seeing her on occasion and I told him to call her and the rest is history. we drank beer while going to high school and at. A party Denny introduced me to Yvonne. 54 years later we got married after my wife died, so I guess we’re even. He always liked my Air Force uniform and asked if he could try it on, so it seemed normal in my estimation he would one day don a uniform of some sorts. he will be sorely missed I m sure. And now can wear an angel uniform with pride.

    Connie, I am so sorry to hear the news of Denny passing. My heart is breaking for you and the girls and their families. I always remember the love you two shared. I wish you peace my friend.

    Denny was a kind and wonderful, sincere cousin. He looked out for my parents and myself and my siblings. He was a great police officer and I know, from my mom, he served in the military. Eternal rest, Dear Denny! Mom can do the police dispatching in Heaven, while you do the patrol! I know I sound weird, but Heaven has 2 more angels from earth! ?

    I retired and started looking up names of people I was in the USMC with. Dennis and I were in Platoon 169 at San Diego. Wish I would have started this search sooner. God Bless you, Dennis. Semper Fi
