You meet friends when you least expect it. I had purchased Dennis’ Cups and Balls Routine, but never dreamed I would meet him. After my book was published, I received a phone from Dennis and he wanted to make a DVD of the book. How could I refuse? I flew out to California and Dennis, Joe Oliverio and I spent three days making a DVD. Although the DVD was only moderately successful, a friendship was born. Dennis and I corresponded via e-mail and telephone calls, but I never made it back out to California to visit.

Dennis was generous to a fault. He gave freely of his time, magic effects, and advice. He recommended a magic product I make to a magic dealer. I still receive orders for these items. I also purchased several tricks from him and when I had trouble understanding how to perform them, he graciously tutored me over the phone. He sent me silks, props, and videos to boost my career.

Dennis and I shared a passion for the Aronson Stack and memorized deck effects. He let me make a contribution to the Memorized Deck section on his web site. He said he didn’t do a lot of sleight-of-hand magic, but he was far better than I. I learned the Kelly Card Control from him. His Micro-Chop cup routine was and is an outstanding effect.

Dennis was professional magician, a musician, juggler, carpenter, cabinet maker and more. He also had a kind and gentle soul. I never heard Dennis say a derogatory word about anyone, even at a personal cost. As one magician said of Dennis, his mistress was magic and his love for that mistress was unfailing.

Magic has lost a good man. I will miss him.
