I heard some of you couldn’t hear my speech this morning, here it is for everyone to read. 😌 Welcome everyone, I’m Aimee, Dennis’ youngest daughter. I wanted to say thank you all for joining us today as we celebrate the life of my Dad, your brother, your uncle, grandpa and friend. I know he’d be happy to see all of your faces and probably has a smile from ear to ear right now. God has a path for everyone. My Dad’s path in life was not your average path, not like the nicely paved path full of trees, wild flowers, deer and maybe a turkey or two. No, not his. His was one helluva rollercoaster ride. Filled with ups & downs, highs & lows and sometimes God threw in a curve ball to keep him on his toes. (pause/smile) Throughout the years, I’ve heard countless stories of my Dad. Funny ones, naughty ones and a handful or two of them that just left me down right speechless. And oh boy all the stories I heard last night (SMILE). But after finding out his infamous nickname, ‘Dangerous Dennis’ it all started to make sense. He was quite the guy, always up to something. Whether it was picking on his siblings at the farm as kids. Taking care of his pigs, riding horses, and heck even causing some ruckus with his friends - ha, how many cars did he roll again? He enjoyed hunting, fishing, playing baseball – I heard he had quite the arm. He loved spending time with his family and raising his three daughters. Oh the adventures that he had. He was a simple man, and didn't need much to be happy. He loved the little things in life. Enjoyed making people smile. Being kind. And spreading his love. He would always end each visit or phone call with, “I love you and God Bless You” no matter what obstacle he was facing that day. One of the things he loved the most was his family. (PAUSE) He treasured each and everyone of you, and was blessed to have so many of you close by. He loved to be around you all, hear your laughs, the stories, learn what’s new, and giving knucks was his jam – he soaked up every minute he could get with all of you. I am so thankful for my Dad and all of the things he has taught us girls. Like how to ride a horse and why you should avoid electric fences. (SMILE) He taught us how to fish, how to hunt, shoot a gun, and how to drive on a gravel road even if it was a few years before we actually got our license - he always wanted to teach us something new, when he had the chance. He showed us the country way of life, and the value of family and prayer. I’m also thankful for the lessons that went unsaid. He has shown me over the past nineteen years how to stay positive when life gets hard. He went through some extreme difficulties but when you’d ask him how he’s doing, he’d just say - ‘oh I’m doing alright’. Sometimes even, he’d say, “Put this hearse in reverse man, I’m not ready to die.” (PAUSE/SMILE) He’s shown me how to find the good in all things. And to always be kind. I thank him everyday for that. Dad you were loved by many, (PAUSE) we will all cherish your memories forever in our hearts and the continuous love you gave us. Now, the day has come, to say our final goodbyes as you walk your way into heaven. Dad, you are free now. Fly high in the heavens! I hope you’ve already found your horses Toots or Trixie and an open field to ride your heart out in. Give grandpa & grandma a hug for everyone, and keep shining down on us. I pray that you forever rest in peace. I pray that you watch over us girls. Like you’d always say, Dad, I Love You, and God Bless You. 🙏 Till we see you again ❤️ Love your girls.

Seeing the picture of Dennis in the baseball jersey instantly reminded me of the days of our cousin and friend groups hanging out in Lake Henry and St. Martin. Dennis was my cool older cousin always comfortable being his fun and friendly self. Always kind. Always considerate. Always with friends around him. He loved life and everyone around him. My sincere thoughts and prayers to the entire family. Much love, Renae (/Schmitz)
