Dennis McDaniel

It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of the death of our long time colleague and friend, Dennis McDaniel.  He was a valued member of our team since February 25, 2004.  He was not just our co-worker, but our good friend as well.

This is truly a great loss to our Turnipseed family and to our community as a whole.  He will be profoundly missed by everyone.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rhonda and his family.
