Denny was a creative and innovative master craftsman and could build almost anything he envisioned from stained glass, to jewelry and jewelry boxes, furniture, work benches and machines and he could fix anything. He just “knew” how. His mind was like a sponge, as he could retain nearly anything he read. Denny was interested in so many venues - art, (he painted pictures and drew his own designs), anthropology, archeology, physics, astronomy, music (most all kinds as long as it was good) and had a gift of playing by ear. Denny regretted he couldn’t read music, but he could play by ear and developed several arrangements for styles of music he enjoyed such as classics “The Masquerade” “Stormy Weather” “Still Crazy After All These Years” “Georgia On My Mind”. He was disciplined and adored a challenge. The more complicated the better.

Denny had a deep, bass voice and friends remember so well his version of “Bo Jangles.” He had a wonderfully unique sense of humor and had a splendid gift of telling stories. He had the accents right on and delighted his audience.

He loved nature taking walks and enjoyed theatre, movies, concerts, museums, parks, outings and was up for exploring almost anything. He loved animals and, especially, his wire fox terrier friends. His 21st birthday present from his mother was Cindy, a wire fox terrier and he raised 6 of them in his lifetime.
