Kelly & Dennis

Kelly and Dennis met in Forestville, 2nd bar stool on the right at the Forestville club. Sparks flew immediately especially when Kelly found out he paid taxes and voted. She knew she had to marry this man. They got married July 3rd 1994 in the biggest little city, Reno. Dennis was so proud of his two sons, David and Jeffery and his two daughters Melissa and Emily.  
     This has come as a shock to all of us. All of you know Kelly and know how kind and loving she is. She is always doing something for others whether it be collecting turkeys for thanksgiving to feed the needy or literally taking the shirt off her back to give to someone else. She never asks anyone for anything. Now is the time to help her. To pay it back. To pay it forward. Kelly does not need to be worrying about this financial burden.  Kelly we love you and we will be by your side through this. RIP Dennis, the man, the myth,the legend!
