Dennis Eugene Gerringer

Age: 49

September 28, 1945
December 25, 2012
Florissant, Missouri, USA

He was a quiet man that kept to himself, yet would engage in profound conversations with people from all walks of life. He was like a wise old owl that would wander through the vast wilderness, taking images with his eyes to share these stories among others he would find in good company. He was a man that would dive deep into meaningful research on just about anything. He took pride in his independence and surviving on his own, but also felt joy in seeing reflections of his influence in the academic success of his children. He appreciated the softer beauty of simplicity, while also seeking the harder truths in life’s complexities. He would probably want to be remembered as a wise and genuine person to all he met.

Name's Final Message

Before their passing, these final words were shared with loved ones...

He never had the chance to pass one along to me personally, but according to my sister, he believed everyone deserved a chance and that in any situation, goodness can be found. She also mentioned that he believed that as we confront the world, we must show it love before all else.

There are no final words mentioned. If you are a family member and have knowledge about final words or letters to the family, friends, or others, please go ahead and share them with us.
