“Denny was the reason I decided to work for UIS, “commented Lori Giordano, UIS admissions director. “He never forgot about the primary duty of this office, helping people become students and improving their lives through education. He never forgot those enrollment and application numbers represent real people.” Others who worked for Denny commented on his dry sense of humor, his friendship, his love of cars, his insight on transfer admissions counseling, and his ability to boil down extremely bureaucratic matters into the human equation. He left an impression because he found a connecting point with each person he worked with.
Denny leaves behind his wife, Patricia, and his daughter, Andrea; as well as his parents, Charles and Geraldine, and his siblings, Linda and Rochelle. He will be greatly missed.
