I got to know Dennis when he started traveling with our company doing bus excursions around the country. He was unique and liked to joke but he also showed a lot of respect to those working and helping. He was one of my favorite customers and he will be missed. He never let the Hostess carry ice to the bus. He enjoyed being with USA Tours and really wanted to get out this year but his health kept him from traveling.
