I knew Dennis before he was the Dockmaster at the Riverwalk in Yorktown Virginia. Dennis did a lot of work in downtown Hampton working with events and help me put on the Get Hooked On Hampton Rockfish Tourney. Dennis also had a great voice, and I recorded his voice overs for several TV ads on our Trojan production vessel. Dennis was also a welcome sight for a long time as he worked the popular Sunday night crowed behind the bar at Maker 20 while David Carter entertained. Dennis could serve up a mean cocktail, but Dennis never touched a drop at any time during the years that I knew him.
Dennis was just a great guy who was liked by everyone, and he was doing a great job in Yorktown at the riverwalk. All those new docks under the bridge in Yorktown with all the shops, restaurants, and festivities- Dennis helped make it all happen. He was more than just a Dockmaster. He was great at putting on events, and had been doing it for a long while. Dennis was largely responsible for bringing to Yorktown such popular historical ships as the Kalmar Nyckel
So long Dennis, Hampton and Yorktown Virginia won't be the same without ya! You will be truly missed.
Memorials may be made in memory of Dennis to Riverwalk Go Green C/O Treasure of York, P.O. Box 532, Yorktown, VA 23690.
