My prayers and love to the family. Dennis impacted my life in many ways. He gave me my very first job as a teenager. I can't begin to count the hours he invested in me teaching me to hunt and fish. There are so many stories I could tell...such fun times. The one thing that stands out is that Dennis Burgess was patient and took time to help me along as a young boy. I dearly loved him and will always have special memories of our hunting and fishing experiences .
