Denny was in my homeroom, but I knew him better through my brother Jack.  Denny and Jack were on the Weightlifting Team together.  I have really fond memories of Denny's big smile and big muscles and am sad to learn he is now gone.  So I can only hope that Denny and my brother Jack, and Mr. Roma are still pumping iron in Heaven - but most likely they are enjoying some hoagies from the Drexel House.

  Some times when someone passes you look for the best things about him and only write of those.

  I coached Dennis in weightlifting and will write only of that AND I don't need to exagerate for him.

  In 1961, I was second in the NCAA w.l. championships.  I had worked out for 10 years or so and

in squatting which I considered my best lift, I went from the 200's to 300's and with years more of 3X

a week workouts, I finally made 400 lbs and peaked at 420.

    After switching to coaching, I entered a meet with Dennis and managed only 380 in that meet - I

weighed 165 lbs  . . . DENNIS did 500 ! ! !  and weighed 150 lbs.  and hadn't been working very long.

    DENNIS WAS THE STRONGEST HUMAN BEING I EVER KNEW -

   ASK LEW TORRIERI FOR STORIES. THEY WERE BEST FRIENDS AND LEW SAW WHAT DENNIS

  COULD DO IN A FIGHT WHICH HE NEVER STARTED - HE WAS NOT A BULLY BUT OTHERS

 ONLY BULLIED HIM ONCE ! ! !

    AS I SAID - NO EXAGGERATION - DENNIS WAS HERCULES REINCARNATED ! ! !

What a great tribute to Dennis by Vern!  I remember when I first met him feeling very intimidated by him...at least until I got to know him personally.  He was a gentle giant.  Makes me sad to see yet another classmate leave us for the greener pastures of paradise!  RIP Dennis...

When Drexel Hill wrestled against Beverly Hills, I remember that Dennis was a very strong wrestler.

MIke Ersbamer was his opponent from Drexel Hill.  I wondered why Dennis did not go out for the high school team, but I guess he enjoyed weight lifting more.

One of my friends from Beverly Hills told me that he was a good kick returner also.

I never really knew Dennis well enough to call him a friend, other than a smile, hello and a few words over our school years. But, I knew him well enough to say he was a very nice person. 

My deepest sympathy to his family and friends, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
