I too knew Dennis from the Salt Flat Hot Wheelers. He was one of the good guys.

He was so easy to talk to and trade with. We both really like those little cars.

Rest easy friend. See you in the next life.

I met Dennis through collecting Hot Wheels many years ago. We would meet on Saturday mornings and travel store to store looking for those little cars. He was always very generous and kind towards others. We had many great times together. He was a good friend and will be missed. Our prayers are with the Coleman family.
