Dennis was such a lovely gentleman.Martin & Marilyn Newsome
Dennis had so many interests, so many roles in life, he enthused and encouraged so
many people. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.Marilyn, Glenn, Adrian,
Martin & Elaine Vickers
We were saddened to hear of Dennis's passing, we remember him so well and full of
friendliness with always a warm welcome for whoever of us might chance to stray over
the road to his house or back garden. Ian, Eleanor, Jeff & Lindsay Pyrah
Having lived in The Fairway for nearly 40 years, it just isn't going to be the same
without Dennis, he was such fun and so smiley you just had to laugh with him and
have a chat albeit a short one, walking down the road won't be the same anymore -
a bit like the sun has gone in without Dennis. Sue Leeson
We always remember him lending us his lovely wooden sledge when our boys were little.

Dennis always worked for better things and conditions for people. I (Lynda) remember
the time we tried to change things on Hallam School Governors and the amusing situation
when we found they thought I was Dennis's wife!! Mike has many memories of working
in the engineering faculty with Dennis over 30 years and many conversations in the
St Georges common room at lunch and on the 51 bus. Mike & Lynda Brown
Dennis made us so welcome when we came to live in the fairway 37 years ago. I (Mary)
was soon a member of Hallam Ward Labour Party and encouraged to take part in campaigning.
For so many years Dennis was at the centre of Hallam's activities and especially
its electioneering. Helen remembers how Dennis helped her when facing job Interviews.
David talks about games of cricket and football in the garden of No.2! Peter remembers
how Dennis took photo of him standing on the chimney on one leg! He was always so
kind and a good friend to the Balbi's. We shall miss him. Mary, Peter, Helen & David
Dennis as remembered by his neighbours
We will remember his cheerful greetings even when not very mobile & his enjoyment
at seeing the dog with her tail wagging. We are so glad he was able to enjoy our
2011 Christmas Party meeting several very old friends and some much more recent ones.
Alan, Julia, Becca, Beth & Hannah Butler
