Dennis loved sharing stories of his years playing softball and umpiring baseball and softball. “Mr. Sullivan” loved coaching basketball, soccer and baseball at Regina Coeli School. One of his favorite things was being one of Santa’s Helpers, which he did for many years. He will be remembered for having a joke to tell everyone he met.

Some people are sent from heaven, and we can’t explain why. We want to thank our four angels- Lori Olney (his at-home nurse), Mike Guziolek (his physical therapist), Gary Stoll and Pat Patton. They comforted Sharon and pushed Dennis when he needed it.
