Pat and family - I was saddened to read of Denny passing this week. I worked with him in the contracting side at Toledo Trane Services for many years. He had many qualities that made him so likable - he was always a gentleman, kind, honest and always ensuring that a job was well done. He will be missed. My prayers are with you during this difficult time. God bless your family. Dianne Brandt

I have been searching for Dennis for a few years on Facebook and such. I happened to google him today, and found this obituary. I am so sad. Dennis was my boss at Trane, and I absolutely adored him. I looked up to him. He helped me through a tough time in my life as well.
