Dennis had a great effect on my life although the last time I saw him was when i was aged 12 whilst he was on his mission in the UK. It was nice to find him years later on facebook and to find that he`d not lost any of his humour.He was a good man and we`ll all miss him but will see him again someday. All our wishes are with his family. John and Helen Sinar U.K.

Though I did not know my cousin Dennis very well, I always thought it nice to have a cousin named Dennis Orgill, with me being Denise Orgill. (Ferguson). I send my love to ALL of you and felt the tenderness and love of family and the gospel as I read the obituary and gazed at his kind face. Much love until we are all united as family in the arms of our Savior.
