Remember years ago possibly 1971-1972 , I think our oldest son Allen Denny was maybe 10years old, Tony and his friend rented a room from Marjean and Henry who lived next door to us. Really nice fellows. That summer they took Allen over to Garfield Park to the pool and taught him how to swim and dive off the diving board. Really appreciated that they did that. Then Tony a year or two later became engaged to Jan, Henry’s sister and then we played monopoly with the four of them. Then they married, the children came along and over the years we would get together when we could and play cards and had a great time with this amazing couple.
Just a couple of years ago Tony and Jan had us over and we played a game, can’t remember the name of it but it was a Dutch shuffle board game and had fun playing it.
We both will miss Tony but we will see him again in our heavenly home with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We extend our deepest condolences to the family.
Sincerely in Christ’s love,
Michael and Suzanne Denny
