I extend my sincerest sympathy and heartfelt prayers. I cannot believe that Denny is no longer with us. He and Doug were at my home just last week. I felt so fortunate that I had finally found the perfect plumber. I regret that I will be out of town this week.

Dear Pat and Family, And he was so worried about me twelve years ago when playing softball! Who would have thought that his health would cause him to go so young. He was always so vibrant and devilish in his ways. We will all miss his Irish wit, his smile and his wonderful sense of humor. I will be wearing my shamrock scarf in his memory at the funeral. Please accept our condolences and prayers. Love to all, Billy and Cecelia Smith

Dear Pat and Family, I am so sorry for the lost of Denny. I will always remember all the good times we had together. Our trips together. Our plane ride to St. Thomas together and what fun we had. I am so glad I was able to make it to Sarasota for Michael's and Jessica's wedding. It was the last time that I was able to be with him. Denny will always be in my heart and in my prayes. He was like a brother to me, I have know him since my childhood. I am so glad that you all have each other at this most difficult time. Denny was a good husband, father and grandfather and friend to all, we will all miss him. Love, Karen Dillon Korelitz

We're so sorry about losing Denny. I remember the times he and Pat would come to hear my band play. He always had a smile on his face singing along to many of the songs. I appreciate the support that he gave me playing music. He really knew how to have a good time. His family was his treasure and he always showed love for you guys. We will miss him. See you tomorrow. Love, Uncle Robert & Aunt Gloria

My prayers are with you, and I will always remember Denny, and the times I had with him, going out on the boat in the Ohio River. I remember as a kid always looking forward to seeing uncle Denny, and how much fun he was.

It is so hard for us to comprehend that Denny is no longer with us. He was far too young and full of life. Denny has been a part of my life since I was about 5 yrs. old. I don't believe that I can remember a time when he was not a part of it. He was always so good to me and my family . He went out of his way to show us a good time. I am so glad that Denny and Pat made it to Tucson to visit. I will always remember that visit. I am also so thankful that we were able to all get together for Michael's wedding. I have a special memory of Denny when I was a child that I would like to share. I was only about 6 or 7 and Denny used to go out into our back yard to throw baseballs. I was always so fascinated with the fact that he could throw the ball so incredibly high. I loved to watch this. He would always catch the balls in his mitt. One time he missed and came into the house with one of blackest eyes I have ever seen . There's so many memories that I will always carry with me. He will not be forgotten. Love and prayers to all of you, Connie

Doggone it, this just ain't right. After all that fighting and work he did getting thru the last several months, Denny was supposed to be around a long time. Since God always has a reason, I suppose He needed a plumber really bad up in heaven, but I think He could have found someone else. Now that Denny is all well up there, he no doubt has God's plumbing problems fixed already, and they will never have any more plumbing problems in heaven. Talk about a guy full of life and energy, I met Denny when he was still a young man, and I knew right away this was not a guy I wanted mad at me, so I made sure I treated his sister-in-law right. But then again, I don't know that I ever saw Denny without a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eyes, especially when he used to take us out on his boat on the Ohio River, old Denny the river captain. He will live in our hearts forever, that man who took the world by the horns. Sure gonna miss you Denny, don't let God work you too hard, take some breaks, you deserve it.

Aunt Pat and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Denny was far too young for something like this to happen. I will always remember the great times I had when I was child, and would sleep over. Uncle Denny was always up for a good time. I wish I could be there with you all. Love, David

I haven't seen Denny since I was a kid. My memories of him are very sweet ones. He treated me as a little sister the few times that we were together. A great guy, we all were lucky to have you!

I haven't seen Denny and Pat since the late 60s but they are one couple and he is one friend that don't get forgotten. We were buddies in High School, roomed one semester at UD and generally had a great friendship. Denny was a giver and a true friend. He was the original Energizer Bunny and never knew the meaning of slow down. Life is truely too short and I am sad that I never got another chance to see an old friend. Those of you on the daily update distribution list know first hand what a great father Denny was as evidenced by the love and ddevotion of his children. While his life was too short, he was truely a lucky man to have spent it with Pat, their kids and the whole moore/Dillon family. My thoughts and prayers are with each and every one of you.

I am so sorry that I was not able to make it down to Georgia but you ALL are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Kari, Keith, Lauren and Noah Bowers

Dear Moore Family, My deepest sympathies are with you. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I have just the best memories of you all coming to Hugs in Madison. I remember your family laughing together and enjoying each other. I loved to wait on your family, Mr. Moore didn't treat me like waitstaff and it showed his true character. I have never forgotten Mr. Moore and I am truly sorry for your loss. Boo
