The Saavedra Family 9/22/2012 10:19:57 AM Dennis was a great man whom I only knew as a singing waiter going back about 5 years ago. He was attentive, genuinely nice and had that wonderfully deep voice. He could really cover Sinatra and prowled across the Altobelli stage with 'rat pack swagger' as another singer has said of him. He was one of the main reasons my wife and I went back to Altobelli's and he shall be missed. Samuel Saavedra and Family June Dunaphant 9/23/2012 2:21:26 PM Dear Heather, I remember that you and I had a connection with another person we both knew, but I cannot remember who. I will sorely miss Dennis. He was always asking me how his voice sounded whenever I want to Altobeloi's after his first siege with cancer. I always enjoyed playing from his and also hearing his great wit and humor at the Lawrence Awards. I feel that I will find him up in heaven singing with the heavenly choir when I get there. I am sending much love to you and your daughtr. Jacki Reid Freeman 9/26/2012 6:24:26 AM Dennis was a wonderful person. I met him while working with Heather. His sweet and loving personality will certainly be missed.
