  3. To the family of Denny, Just happened to see Denny\’s obituary in today\’s Daily Breeze. I was floored to see that Denny had passed away. I met Denny many years ago at Torrance High School, he and Dana took an adult education class that I was the Instructional Assistant in, his neighbor\’s, the Campbell\’s, daugher, Stephanie Harper was the instructor. He and Dana always were happy and had such a wonderful relationship. Years later I needed a barber for my Dad, I asked Stephanie and she told me about Denny being a barber. I took my Dad there for years, until he passed away last year. I always enjoyed talking to Denny, he always proudly spoke about Dana and his son Steve. Whenever I passed his barber shop I often thought of dropping by just to shoot the breeze with Denny, he was that kind of guy… I wish I had, just to thank him for being so kind to my Dad and just to shoot the breeze with him. My deepest sympathy to his family. Sincerely, Nancy Shimada

  4. RoseAnn and Family: Our family was so sorry to hear that Denny passed away this week. My son was still getting his hair cut by Denny and they would have many talks about baseball and Denny used to encourage Tony Jr to do his best and get some homeruns for him. Years ago I worked the Central Redondo Little League with you and Denny and I still remember Denny carrying loads of supplies from his car into the snack bar. He was a great man and loved kids and it was truly an honor to have known him. He will be greatly missed in this community. Our prayers are with you and your family. Tony, Gail, Danny, Kristine and Tony Jr. Chavez
