Harvard St., Auburn, passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 15,

2021 after recently declining health. Denny was born on July 11,

spirit of strength and determination throughout his life, right up to

his last breath. He was a kind and sweet soul, gentle and quiet. He

enjoyed his time at The Progress Center, working on projects and

wonderful care-giver. Denny was predeceased by his parents and
