Dennis and Pat were great friends of my stepdad Frank and my mother Peggy Higgins. I will always remember Dennis and Frank and their “deals.”
Dennis was a true gentleman.. I remember his warm demeanor and his uplifting personality. Dennis was a kind soul who will be missed. My condolences to the family .
I visited with Dennis at times in recent years – usually at a family event (a wedding or other family get-together). The two of us shared some common interests. We would talk and laugh about business, family connections, and his radio-ministry. I always felt good (happy and optimistic) after spending time with him.
I’ll miss him – I believe the world is a much better place because of Dennis.
– (I admired his knowledge and his approach to his many business dealings).
If you never believed that Angels walked the earth. Now You Should! Dennis always gave of his time at the “Right Time” for many. If he did not provide an answer he gave you direction to seek it in the right manner. His protection of others went unnoticed and his accomplishments were unselfish. All the Glory given by Dennis was to His / Our God.
I can’t honestly say if Dennis made me a better man, But I can certainly say I’m a better man for knowing him.

Dennis I remember walking into C & B Printing almost 40 years ago. I have learned so much from you over the years. You helped mentor me in business and life, just like you did for so many others. My success in business would not have possible without your guidance. I’m sure you are working on the next deal up in heaven. Thanks for everything. Love Jim Cramer
P. S. These bank meetings are not nearly as much fun without you.
What a total blessing we all had with Dennis! He lived the fruit of the spirit fully. Thank you all for sharing Dennis with all of us. Love DJ
Dennis, you will be missed by so many fortunate people that knew you. I am so happy to serve as your commercial lines agent these last few years, you have been one of my favorites to have the honor to take care of. Upshaw Insurance Agency has you and your loved ones in prayer.
You were a man’s man, a man of integrity and the wisdom of Solomon. You were a gentle caring man who’s laugh was catching. You will be missed but not forgotten.
We love you Dennis!!
Many people have been led to salvation through Jesus Christ after hearing God’s Word on Radio by Grace. My husband, Wes, and I heard Pastor Bill on Radio by Grace. That led us to go to Grace Church and then to believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior. Thank you, Dennis, for making Radio by Grace possible. We can’t wait to get to Heaven and see you again.
We love you and are praying for you, Cindy and your family.
Love, Linda and Wes Henry
