JUNE 16, 2022

An award-winning and beloved teacher and mentor in the Department of English at WVU for more than thirty years, Dennis died on October 31, 2021.


June 16, 2022, would have been Dennis's 71st birthday. 

The celebration of his life began at 4 p.m. (Eastern time) in E. Moore Hall on the downtown WVU campus. Dennis's friends, students, and colleagues filled the room on a sunny, 96-degree summer day, with more attending via Zoom. 

  • The program.

  • Mark Brazaitis's beautiful eulogy (link will open as an mp4 file and will run about 14 minutes)

  • A vintage playlist from a mix-CD that Dennis made several years ago. He titled it "Back to the Beach." Enjoy!
