“We were unaware of Denny's passing until this evening. The service was beautiful. We are sorry we missed it. We always enjoyed visiting with him in the NAPA store and often times Velma was there and we could reminisce about the past Harley club and all. Denny just worked on our bike this summer and we didn't realize he was ill. May God give you peace and strength during this difficult time. Love Wendell and Caryn Riedemann”
