In Memory

Remembering Dennis by Marcia Irvin (Facilities)

Dennis Lorenzo Taylor, a dear friend and student of Glendale Community College, passed away on August 9, 2018.

Dennis started attending GCC in 1986 where he took many classes on and off. Math was one of his favorite subjects.
It is to be believed that Dennis was the oldest student here; he brought a lot of wisdom, laughter, and conversation to many people here on campus. He was a pleasure to know and will be truly missed!

R.I.P. Dennis
