  1. Danniel, I’m so shocked to hear of your Dad’s passing.
    He loved you I know, as when I visited for your school reports etc he always told me what a good boy you were.
    He cooked beautiful food for you and Sarah of which I was envious.
    Dennis was a good man who took his faults ‘on the chin’ and let you get on with your life..
    Dennis, I will remember you always for your hospitality and our friendship which developed from my Home School Visits over the years.
    My condolences to all your family .. Rest in Peace Dennis.

  6. Dennis came to me in a dark time of my life. I had just lost my biological father earlier that same year and was on the verge of homelessness. Dennis kind as he was opened his home and his heart to me. He taught me to be strong and resilient and I am forever greatful.

    He made me laugh and cry, we clashed and became best friends. I wouldn’t have it any other way. And soon he look to me as if I were his daughter and he my dad.

    He always shared stories of his past and I was fascinated to learn more about him. And when he’d get on the beers you could guarantee night of laughs and memories.

    No matter what he’d always take my side when it came to danny and I’s little disagreements. I loved that and would always gang up on danniel together.
    It’s hard to accept that you are really gone, you’re never going to see your youngest son get married nor meet your future grandchildren but I know you will be  watching over us with your darling Vicky.

    You are going to have a place in our hearts forever  and live on in our stories we tell one another. 

    Gone but never forgotten,

    Rest easy Dennis x

  7. I miss all the times we had I wish there was more. I wish I was there because maybe might of been something I could of done to prevent this I don’t know. Everytime I walked into the house you were there to give me a hugs and kisses but now I walk in all I feel is Pain. I am Hurt that I’ll never see you again I’ll never be able to hug and kiss you I’ll never be able to tell you how I have been. I don’t know what I am to do I am so lost without you in my life. You keeped saying to me and Beck. “When am I going to have another grandchild” and I keeped saying we are trying. When come down I was hoping it was a big mistake that someone had made and you would be waiting for me at the door after seeing all the calls on the phone from me. But when I walked into the kitchen and saw the chair and we’re always in I started to cry so I walk out and went to your bedroom but that was so much were because as soon as I opened that door I got a big wiff off your smell but you were nowhere to be seen. And I sat on your bed and cryed my heart out. I could not believe that you died it hit me so hard it hurt. I have lost another part of my life when you left I just hope that you are where you can be loved as much I love you down here. I hope that your now with Mum, David, Dennis, Debbie, Nan, Pop and more I love you dad always love me, Bec, Di, Steve, and every one else who you have touched with your heart

  8. I will always remember how you treated me when we first meet, you treated me like We where old mates that you had known for a long time we even laughed a joked around and it came so easily to you because it was just in your nature and you always knew how to put a smile on everyone’s face and you would go above and beyond to help a mate out, you where always a hard worker and always had a job to do, you have a heart of Gold Dennis and there is no one else like you, so suffering fucking arseholes here’s a poem just for you Dennis

    God saw you getting tired
    And a cure was not to be
    So he put his arms around you and whispered “come with me”
    With tearful eyes we watched you and saw fade away although we loved you dearly we could not make you stay
    A golden heart stopped beating hard, working hands at rest.
    God broke our hearts to prove to us
    His only takes the best.

  13. Dennis, I’m still trying to accept that you have gone. No more late night calls after a night of drinking. No more laughing and joking over a cup of coffee. We had some great times together. I almost picked up my phone to talk to you yesterday and then I realised I can’t do that anymore. I thank you for loving me and your friendship, you had a heart of gold and will always have a place in my heart 💖. My condolences go out to your family. The Wurruk gang are all gone now, rest in peace Dennis. Love always Bettina.
