I met Dennis a few years ago when he helped "teach" me about cattle. He so willing to share his knowledge and incredibly giving of his time. I was fortunate to have know him, if only briefly. My sympathy to you all, Liz Conmy

Sorry to hear about Dennis. Sorry I did not get a chance to meet my distant cousin...

Dennis was always a shining, smiling star of Milton. I always looked for him at the celebrations we all loved. In 1966 when I was in Milton he took to calling me "Robin" and I called him "Batman", I don't know why really. But it caused us to have a chuckle whenever we met again. I will miss him.

Our sympathy and prayers for the family and friends of our dear cousin Dennis Brown. Other commitments make it impossible for us to attend the memorial service. Dennis was always so kind and helpful. He truly loved his sister Linda and my heart broke as I watched him weep for her. Dennis, you have shown the love of Jesus to your family and community. May you never be forgotten.

To Kyle and Family of Dennis, I grew up in Milton and knew Dennis quite well; always had time to stop and chat - such a caring person. He will be missed by all. Thoughts and prayers to the family.
