Me and Big Den, April 1979
My Uncle, "Big Den", passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer. He was such a GREAT guy. He was the biggest sports fanatic I know...an ex-NBA player (he played for the Lakers- woot woot!), and an avid ASU fan. I still remember standing under his legs and being in awe of Big Den. I remember the many times he and my dad would watch a game, and scream at the tv with their booming voices...I'm pretty sure people in the next city knew when our family was watching a game!!
My dad misses his big brother, as do so many other people whose lives he touched, including my wonderful Aunt, my two amazing cousins, and his adorable four grandchildren.
We love you Uncle Denny!
