On the same day (June 1st) that John Hager's photo obituary appeared
in the San Diego Union-Tribune obituaries, also was Dennis
Dennis raced my car at Cajon Speedway in the 80's and was also
involved in working on several other cars there. He was just 45 years
old. Dennis suffered a heart attack while doing some work over at his
parents, Ken and Dorothys, house in Lemon Grove. The Guest Book for
Dennis can be viewed at www.SignOnSanDiego.com
He was a very funny guy and will be greatly missed as will John Hager.
