I remember Dennis from high school, he graduated a year ahead of me, I graduated with Denise in 1971. I was very sorry to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers for Denise, his children and grandchildren. Christine Allen Nunley

During our over 30 years of friendship, I always enjoyed our casual conversation about current events, sports and family. Dennis loved his family very much and was so proud of Denise and his three sons Craig, Brad and Chad. His biggest enjoyment came from talking about each of them, along with his three daughter in laws and 6 grandchildren. They made him so happy and proud that I can still hear the excitement coming from his voice as he gave me the latest on each. What a good friend Dennis was to many of us and he will be greatly missed. Dale Bishop

Deepest sympathy to the family. Many fun memories while our sons were playing sports. From Craig and Chad playing baseball to Chad and Adam playing on the first Batavia 10-0 football team. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time, Vic, Sharon, Chad and Adam Mosbacker.

Dennis loved talking about Batavia sports. Fun times spent together on vacations, the Ridge club and at school sporting events. We are so blessed to share grandchildren and be a part of the Kelley family. Prayers and hugs to Denise , Craig, Brad and Chad, along with their family.

Many a New Year's Eve was spent with the Kelleys and Rosenhoffers together, our parents playing cards and the kids of the two families 'rough housing'. I spent (or misspent, kidding of course) many a youthful hour with Dennis and Lindy...good people and I am saddened to learn of this. Heartfelt condolences, Gary Rosenhoffer
