Dennis and Stanley were great friends back in the 50s when they shared a flat in
Redcliffe Square (Stanley died in 1992).
We enjoyed Dennis's wonderful sense of humour and his lively intellect. Ruth McMaster
My (Vincent) memories go back to the days at the Coal Board, the meetings of the
Association of Scientific Workers, and the many visits to your place. Vincent &
I had known Dennis since boyhood in Acomb - with many happy memories of cricket and
football on The Green and wanderings in Beech Grove woods and the surrounding fields.
Dennis remembered by friends old and new
He was a good-hearted friend, such a nice person.Lydia, Tony, Roman & Irena
We were sad to read news about Dennis ...... I (Premek) was quite touched for Dennis
was a part, very important for me personally, of the whole history of my "encounter"
with Sheffield which, when I think of it all, still feels nothing short of a miracle.
We still keep and at times browse through, Wainwrights Pennine Way Companion which
Dennis was wise to get us.
I would like to say he was influential also to my academic career and way of thinking,
by his enthusiasm for technical things and for living his life in which meeting with
people of all sorts and origins, trying new things, keeping an open mind, striving
to pursue ideas and questions until a clear and revealing answer comes out, ife which
he also taught me to enjoy. So I hope he'd be pleased to know that from those seeds
originating in his talks with a masters student of software engineering, in a few
months a "docent" will (hopefully) grow, named Premek. Premek & Jana
My (Geoff’s) main memories of Dennis go back to our time in the USA, which was such
an interesting and enjoyable time for both of us. I still have vivid memories of
my 2 years there and Dennis in many of them.Rita & Geoff Drake
