Denis passed away April 14, 2016. He was 75. He got hooked on chess in 1958 while he was a freshman at LeMoyne College in Syracuse, NY. His first USCF tournament was played in DC in 1961 where he acquired a 1600 rating. In graduate school at Clarkson University, he met a group of ardent chess players and reached 1900-2000 strength. Graduating in 1968 with a Ph.D in solid state physics, he moved to Maryland and took a job at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds where he spent his entire working career.
