We met in the Marine Corps. Fine man who loved to read. We taught electronics in adjacent classrooms in San Diego and 29 Palms California. Later I became an officer with the San Diego P.D and talked Dennis into a possible L.E. position knowing he wanted out of the Marine Corps. Years later I was informed by another agency of his death. Never forgotten Denny !
