    If you were in a room with Dennis for more than 5 minutes he considered you his friend. Always had a smile on his face and was the life of the party. Hope you’re at peace . You will be sorely missed.

    Dennis you was a great man, a true old school italian. I used to love coming by everyday to deliver the mail and talk about the old days around St.Thomas parrish..I loved conversating by the old jukebox and how you would show me your classic Caddys, always offering me coffee or a coke in a bottle. My day on the route now won’t be the same without you but I know you and all the late great italians will be watching over this old soul as you would call me. Rest in peace my friend, Kid as you always called me

    So sorry for your loss. Had many a conversations about life on the farm when I lived down the road from you on Smithville. Loved seeing Dennis at Films after that and will miss our hysterical chats. He was truly one of a kind.

    Yo Skank! Good Morning!
    How I am going to miss those words. Dennis described by many was a character.
    We became good friends over the years and I will surely miss him and our early morning phone calls. He was a talented craftsman and was extremely good at what he did. That kind of skill can not be replaced.
    I am so sorry for your loss, I am still at a loss myself. May you Rest In Peace my friend.

    An absolute original! No one made us laugh harder than Dennis Cap,
    Thanks for being a great and trusted friend to our entire family.
    Rest in Peace Dennis, we will miss you dearly.

    My condolences. Dennis was a gem. I remember when Dennis and his crew were upgrading our conference rooms here at Films. I’d hear him as I passed by “Hey…big guy…what’s shakin’?” I would stop to talk to him for at least 20 minutes each time, which would always end in laughter. We got a kick out of having the same initials…he’d say “You’re a DC and I’m a DC, practically family.” I swear, he should have been a producer because his stories were incredible! He had the most hilarious story about one of his crew member’s affinity for floss sticks. It always had me in stitches because I’m constantly using floss sticks. He’d bust my chops “Hey big guy, let me ask you a question…is that the mint kind?” My word, Dennis was the type of guy that made you smile as soon as you saw him. Life isn’t filled with too many people like that. The fact that in Dennis, God saw fit for him to cross my path, I feel truly blessed. My apologies, I know I’m rambling but I’m gonna miss him.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I feel so fortunate that I spoke with Dennis recently. I will cherish forever that 20 minute phone conversation. He had me in stitches! What a wonderful and funny cousin! I loved when he would come to our house with his mom, Aunt Millie. The two of them were like a comedy team! Rest in peace Dennis!

    Debbie and family, I am so sorry for your loss. The world will be less brighter now without Dennis. I know my Dad is waiting for him with open arms as they warmly embrace and continue their hilarious antics together.

    We are so sorry and we will keep you all in our prayers. We will miss Dennis. He was always there when we needed him and he made life more exciting. We were blessed to be your neighbors.

  • Frank Liuzzi May 16, 2021 11:16 am

    I’m just speechless. Not only was he a good friend but a client. I enjoyed his banter and wit. Gone way too soon. God bless you Dennis. I loved talking about the good ole days in South Philly as kids. You couldn’t help but laugh every time we spoke.

  • The Howard Family May 16, 2021 3:35 pm

    It was wonderful to be your neighbor. Watching you talk while trying to mow the lawn, sharing notes on all types of repair, talking about the neighborhood, being a perfectionist, but most of all enjoying your sense of humor and smiling face. Rest in peace my friend.

    These past week has been a trial of my emotional sanity. Monday my family and friends honored a man of whom virtually no one could have spoken a bad word about. My cousin Dennis was THEE most unique a person most would ever meet. If you spent just a short moment with him, you would have what our family would call “A Dennis Story”. We all have them, we spent most of Monday reliving them. Dennis was an honorable man, generous beyond measure (BEYOND MEASURE), a gifted story teller even in the darkest moments (I can still hear him after my mother’s funeral entertaining the family in our living room turning our tears of sadness to tears of laughter), loyal, mischievous but in a humorous way (the basis of the majority of “The Dennis Stories “), kind, skillful in his profession. They’re numerous other words about him that can be used but these paint the picture. Our world is a lesser place now without Dennis but the legacy he has left behind will live on because he has touched so so many lives. A rare man who was not only comfortable with the paupers of which he came but to the kings who he could disarm and befriend with his personality. A king among kings. You are missed Dennis, terribly so. I love you.
