by Dennis Urdaneta for Dennis Urdaneta, Army, Sargent First Clas, Served From 1999 to 2019, Born 02/19/79, Passed On 05/28/19, Honored by Camp Lewis Cemetery

Dennis was a man of honor and humility. Always gave a helping hand and loved with his whole heart. He was an incredible leader, a great friend, a loving husband and a super hero dad. All gave some, some gave all to defend what they loved most. To our favorite Hero who has gone above and beyond, thank you for all that you have done for us and this country. We are very blessed to have had you in our lives and continue to stand beside you and honor you all the days of our lives.
