It is with deep sadness we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of Dinis (Dennis) Manuel Martins, born July 23 1952, in the village of Lagoa, Sao Miguel, Azores. Dennis passed away in his sleep on Sunday morning, July 15, 2012. He is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Marina, and two sons, Kevin and Trevor as well as his many nieces, nephews and countless friends.
