Denis passed away this morning at 9:15. He had leukemia.

He will be greatly missed by his brothers ans sisters, his son and two
daughters as well as his grandson and granddaughter.

His wife died a few years ago from cancer also.

I had been wondering why Denis had not started posting again after having come home from the hospital. I am so sorry to hear this and will miss him very much. This makes my heart hurt. My deepest condolences to you and to your family.

Oh, so very sorry Curly. I like his signature line "I'm a man of few words but I use them often". He had a lot to say and I loved to hear it. What an intelligent and gentle soul. I will miss him. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh my goodness. That is so sad to hear. My condolences to you and Orleansbelle. Denis will be missed by all at Gameboomers. He was such a great contributor to the Garden. Always presented insightful solutions. Good thoughts and prayers to the family.

Thank you everyone for your kind words.
I must add that Denis was figuring math problems with his daughter and son to the end, he had a great mind and a huge heart.
Rest in peace my brother, I love you to pieces.

I had wondered why I hadn't seen Denis around--this is sad news indeed. He (and his puzzles) will be missed.

I am so very sorry to hear your news Curly and Belle. Denis came across as a lovely man and I really enjoyed his humour and ready wit. God bless you both and I send my love to all your family.

Denis will be sorely missed by many of us: RIP

I am sure that there is an apt but irreverent quote in Terry Pratchett somewhere, but I cannot find one at the moment.

I'm so sorry to hear this sad news about Denis, Curly. You and OrleansBelle and the whole family have my deepest sympathy. I will miss him, especially his captions in the weekly squiggles.

Oh, my heart is breaking. I had so much respect for Denis and I so loved his sense of humor and, of course, his puzzles. I have thought of him often in the last few weeks and was looking forward to his return to the garden. He always managed to put a smile on my face. He will be missed. Remi and Belle, please accept my condolences. I will keep your family in my prayers.

Your sad news hurts all of our hearts, Remi. Denis was a real presence on this board, both a mathematician and a lover of the vagaries of the English language.

My sincere condolences to your family, Remi and Belle. Denis will be sorely missed.
