Condolence & Memory Journal

So sorry to hear of the loss of Dennis. I remember him as a quiet person and Charles as the one that liked to kid around and make you laugh. I have fond memories of these two brothers as we grew up being the same age and shared an Aunt and Uncle (Buddy & Eleanor Johnson) Our hearts go out to the Passwater family members. April Woodard & JoAnn Jefferson (The Stanley sisters)

I use to drive Dennis around in his car because he was not 16 yet and could not get his drivers license. I drove him to Rehoboth, Milton, and other trips. Sometimes a whole car load of his friends. Sometimes we got into a race with another car. We had a lot of fun together. He was a very kind guy and never talked bad about anyone. He would always pick up a hitch hiker. One night his car broke down and we walked from Milton to almost Georgetown before we finally got a ride. He was a true friend and will be missed by all. Sorry for your loss.
