I worked many years with Denny at Guide. He was a great guy, good friend and will be missed by many. Bob Tetrick

Denny continues to be one of the kindest, most encouraging people that I have ever met. During my formative years, Denny served in several church roles, impressing on us all the need for a calm voice in times of trouble. His sense of humor is legendary and those jokes that I did not get as a child, put a smile on my face as an adult. Although I have not seen Denny in several years, he will never be forgotten.

I took Denny's place at Guide in the Materials R&D area when he retired. I met him before this when I was a vendor to Guide and then spent much more time getting to know more than just stories about him after I left and became a vendor again a year before they shut down.
Denny was a pleasure to know and a character. Some great stories were told and he was part of one of the absolutely best work groups I have ever been been able to work with. We played cards every lunch, and this area was very dear to everyone that worked there and they played for blood, it was so much fun!!
The best story has a history. They told me to not drop the ball, or in this dept. they briefly called it, "Don't drop the Denny". OMG. Apparently not long before I got there, they had a group team building and one was the "Trust Fall". Denny, not being a big guy, fell back into the groups arms, but rebounded so high they thought he was up, and when he fell backwards again they dropped him. He was okay, so no harm done, but this type of thing fit this group and well.
I am sorry to hear of his passing, he and so many others made this a wonderful work place of hard working, very intelligent people, with great humor and sarcastic wit to match. It made the time pass quite well and I learned a lot. I miss that...
