  • I am so very sorry to read about Dennis passing. Dennis served the Town of Kearny well and I was so happy that I got to work with Dennis, as a member of the Town Council. I also had the privilege of again working with Dennis when he was Commander of Post 1302.
    I extend my deepest sympathies to Dennis’s family. Rest in Peace my friend.
