His mother, Shari, having also fallen in love with the area, followed him up to Marsh Valley and she lived with Dennis until her passing four years ago.

Dennis cherished his family and lifelong friends. He was the fun-loving uncle to his nephew and two nieces and he was extremely happy in his final months starting a new family with his girlfriend Brittnie and her daughter Brooklyn. Dennis valued his friendships in the area from his neighbors to his friends in Downey and at Downata Hot Springs. He is survived by his brothers Ken Danzer of Oceanside, CA and Jerry Danzer of San Diego, CA along with his nieces and nephew. He will join his mother at the Cambridge Cemetery in Downey.
