Great memories of our teenage years in Woomera. I recall you and my sister Felicity worked at the CBA at Woomera West. Also the time you rang and asked me to meet you at Port Augusta, to assist in driving your recently purchased Austin A30 back to Woomera. RIP Mate.

Sue and Greg Hall -

Great memories of our neighbour of 23 years There was never a dull moment while Dennis was around! Full of energy, didn't like sitting still, passionate about his cars and for life in general. We recall your raucous laughter and your enthusiasm for life, and also your amazing knowledge. RIP Dennis.

I sat next to Dennis in grade 8 at Woomera he was a great mate very witty and highly intelligent. My sincere condolences to the family. Iā€™m sure you will make them laugh a lot up there in heaven.

Neil Smith -

Dennis, I worked with you in Loans Department for a couple of years and greatly admired your knowledge and fantastic wit. You were greatly respected in the Bank and always remained the life of the party. You also did great work outside the Bank. May you liven up the new place that you are going to.

Vicki Rankin and Peter Jesser -

Dennis was a wonderful supporter of our business the Old Barn at Sedan. Dennis was also our neighbour and always obliging with his role as Justice of the peace to sign documents at short notice. He never once complained about our music that he must have been able to hear from his house! The sudden loss of Dennis is a so very sad. We will miss you! X

Greg O'Neill -

Condolences to Dennis's extended Family, and apologies for non attendance at the Mass. Have a Cardiologist appointment at 1230 in Hutt St. I have a wonderful photo of Dennis and his Austin A30 parked in front of his parents place at Kadina, with Dennis wearing his 'Pommy' peaked cap and smoking a pipe. I am comforted that another old mate, John Quinn from our halcyon Woomera days will be present to rep. all of those from the past. RIP Dennis and God Bless.

Harry & Liz Kneebone -

To Tricia, Kellie & Michael, We are very sad to hear of the sudden passing of your dad. We have known Dennis since the early 1960's. He was a very good friend and mentor with restoring my 1926 Model T Ford and shared many common interests including Brewing Stout. Dennis's label was Merry Mac's Mad Muck & mine was Happy Harry's Horny Stout. He will be sadly missed by all.
