Send Condolence

We were so sorry to hear of Dennis’s death. We have known him for quite a long time as a friend, and as a plumber. He was in our home a few days before his death and was as happy and full of jokes as always. We loved his dry sense of humor. His professionalism was beyond words. We will miss his friendship.

I am devastated by the news. I guess that’s why your son answered the phone when I got home on Wednesday night. You are in my prayers and my heart. Please call me when you need to.

Remember Dennis loved life. Dennis and all the “Hams” are my family. Dennis will always be with us- he’s in our hearts, our heads and will be on your shoulders watching over us. My sincerest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to my “family “, and to all the relatives and friends and everyone who had the delight of knowing our Dennis. Dennis May you Rest In Peace, my friend, you’ll always be part of us.

Very sad to hear of the news. Our thoughts are with the family duirng their time of mourning. I can remember Dennis from when i was very young and he dated my mum. Just a really awesome guy. One of the more specific things that i can remember is going on his motocycle with him. It's probably one of the main reasons 30 years later i have my own motorcycle now. Just pure enjoyment. I can also remember a path my life had taken me on after high school. I started to get into plumbing. Then i started working for his father Neil, with his brother Arnold. Once again my path in life theough some curve balls, and shortly there after i was in the Army. Almost 20 years later i am getting ready to retire from the Army. Who i am today is a true testament to the impact the entire Hamovitz family had on my life and my path. I love you guys, and I'm very sad to hear of this news. You will always be in our thoughts.

Such a shock ! He was like a brother to me growing up. Our families were very close ! So many good times and funny memories . Dennis would give anyone the shirt off of his back. Way too young.
