Keith and I only met Dennis and Margaret a relatively short time ago when they both came to the Plant Centre but what a delight the meeting turned out to be and subsequent visits became a meeting of friends. What a true gentleman. He was such easy company. He was so appreciative of the smallest things, he had a generousity of spirit and such a love of life and, when, on more recent visits, he must have been feeling wretched, he never once complained but remained so positive. I really wish I had known Dennis for a lot longer but I feel extremely fortunate to have met him

My life has been enriched by knowing Dennis - the kindest, most generous person I have have ever known, a true gentleman in every sense of the word.. Memories are many and varied: simple memories are vivid, the quiet moments, the fun, the smiles and laughter, the growing enjoyment of his garden; fantastic memories of beautiful holidays together and with his family; the comforting memory of the love he had for his family that spilled over to all he came in contact with; lastly the memory of the quiet uncomplaining acceptance of his illness. The pain will ease and the smiles return but you will be forever in my hearty and thoughts

I took over the job that Dennis had left some time before and didn't meet him in a professional capacity. Our first meeting was when he joined us for an office Christmas lunch. He was a vibrant, cheerful and amusing man, who had so much life in him. He packed a great deal into his life after his retirement and one of the greatest things was his love of his family.

There are simply too many to pick just one, but the memories of his kindness, his concern for others, his love of life and his ability to always look on the good side of everyone and everything, even during his long illness, will stay with us forever.
