  1. Dennis was my friend and barber for over 30 years. I loved chatting with him about the topic of the day. We respected each other’s views even though we sometimes disagreed. He was a fixture in Edmond and I believe he knew everyone. He will be missed.

    I was so surprised to hear of Dennis passing. I want you to know that I am thinking of you today and in the days to come. Today I am reflecting on good memories of the fun times we had back in the good ole days.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. May you find peace and comfort in good memories.

  3. Dennis was the best barber I will ever have. I looked forward to the conversations we had when I was in his chair. I will miss his wit and wisdom. He was a solid guy in all the right ways. Myself and the Edmond community will miss him.

  4. Dennis was a long time friend and neighbor. We loved to talk about Edmond and our mutual life events. His faith was strong and although we won’t see him for a while we know we will see him again. His heart is now as strong as his ready smile. May he Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory…

  5. Dennis was a wonderful Christain man. For 31 years I enjoyed the time we spent together in the chair. Talking about Christ and many other topics. He will be missed.

  6. I can’t remember getting a haircut from anyone else other than Dennis. We kidded about who was the most frugal person in Edmond and how precious knowing the presence of The Lord. We exchanged our medical challenge situations and I knew things were much more serious when he called me one evening about a month ago. I am confident Dennis personally knows how real the love of Christ is more than ever before.
    The best of all, God is with us!

  7. Dennis was one of my dearest friends. For over 30 years I sat in his barber chair’ as we shared the ups and downs of our lives. I was sitting in his chair when he received word of his father’s passing. I prayed with him, at that moment. A few years later, Dennis prayed with me, upon my father’s passing.
    I first met Dennis when our daughters were classmates in junior high. They were teammates on the track team.
    Dennis was the epitome of what a man should be. He loved his Lord, his wife, his children and, certainly, his grandkids. We would have bragging contests about our kids and grandkids. (It always ended in a tie!)
    He was a tremendous example for many, many customers , friends and family.
    I will truly miss him.
    God Speed, Dennis you have received the prize!

  8. Dennis was a wonderful man. His kindness, gentleness, and love of God was always in the forefront. His stories about family and travels were always fun to listen to. Dennis will be greatly missed. Our prayers for the family.

  9. So sorry for the loss of my old neighbor and barber. What a fine man. Gave my sons their first haircuts like he he did for so many of us.
    God be with you all Dennis is in His glory.

  10. My late husband, Fred, was a client of Dennis’ for over 25 years. He loved their conversations, though not always in agreement:) Dennis was wonderful while Fred was in ICU; visiting him several times and praying for him. May God be with you, his family, during this very hard time and bring you peace.

  11. Dennis cut my father’s, my son’s and my hair for over thirty years. We could talk about many topics; especially about our Savior and Lord. He married his wonderful sweetheart and raised a wonderful family. Dennis will be sorely missed.

    Dennis will be there to meet us in Heaven, since he is obviously there at this time. My prayers and thoughts go out for his family. My deepest condolences to each and all.
