So sorry for your loss.

Guy and Pam Stalvey

What a special human being. Pam and I were looking forward to visits after retirement, riding the trails in Georgia and he promised that you Leslie and he were gonna visit as soon as we got settled up there. I'm thankful I don't have long to work without him there, needless to say it will never be the same. God bless and keep you Leslie, DJ and Diane and give you strength, comfort and peace during this sad time. We love you all.....

Hands down the best neighbor/friend you could ever have. He would do anything for anyone. He always kept us up to date on the latest happenings and always had a good joke to tell. So blessed and honored to have shared so many good times over the years. Dennis you will be missed so very much. We love you ❤️

Sending my most sincere condolences to Leslie and D.J, I worked with Dennis for 27 years and have heard many stories, but I will always remember him telling me about all his toys and how they had “all the bells and whistles “ how he loved and took care of his family. Rest easy Teston, you will be missed.

Leslie, I was so sorry to hear of Dennis passing. Always good to me in the credit union. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.


Dennis was an incredible man. He used to tell me stories and I could always remember to this day he would tell me the longest word in the dictionary was “IF” oddly enough, I have lived the last eight years of my life with his motto. He was an amazing husband to Leslie and a wonderful father to DJ and he is going to be missed incredibly
