The database page for Thomas George Denning
Tommy was the type of guy you were proud to call a friend. He always wanted to be a U.S. Marine and always had a big smile on his face. He is one of the 19 from Dearborn County in Indiana who was honored in 2002 when the MOVING WALL came to town. His picture and biography hangs in the City Council Chambers and also in the library at the local high school. May he rest in peace.
