He started a golf outing for CDC employees and dreamed of one day golfing at Pebble Beach until his passing in 1996. Dennis' coworkers decided not only to memorialize him by continuing the golf outing, but also turn it into a fundraiser for his second love, kidney patients. The event raised $45,000!
