Dennis was a man of the sea.  From his first Boston Whaler at the age of 12 he worked and lived on the water in his restored Hattaras Yachts.  In Montauk he Captained, and was a talented master mechanic fixing anything that floated from local fishing boats to 100 plus foot yachts at Star Island Yacht Club.  In the past few years he ran his own yacht mechanic service “Mad Dog Marine”.

 

However Dennis’ true gift was to give absolute love, loyalty and assistance to his myriad of friends reaching back to days in kindergarten.  Dennis was also devoted to his family and we to him,
