All the way back to the 5th grade at St. Paul's School. A good,quiet kid, was kinda surprised that he wound up a police officer; I'm sure he was by the book without being a jerk, without being brutal. Anyone who died at his age died too young.

I sat in the same row, a couple of seats behind Denny in somebody's (maybe Mr. Savage) 7th grade class. As I recall, Denny sat in the front seat of that row.

Everyone I knew referred to Denny as "Brows", because of his dark, bushy eyebrows that appeared to almost grow together.

Well, Denny had a habit of turning around, making a stupid face and rapidly "twitching" those eyebrows anytime something struck him as remotely funny. A number of us would crack-up and of course Denny would remain stone-faced and turn around before the teacher saw him.

I can still see him shaking his head in feigned disbelief, as those of us who laughed caught Hell from the teacher.

I would think Denny is still cracking jokes somewhere.
