Dennis Young was a long time member (approx 2001-2023) of the JACOMO Chorale. Dennis was one of our low Bass singers. He held titles of President and Treasurer over those many years. Dennis was an easy going member of the group and was loved/cared by many who knew him. Both of them were retired and did a lot of traveling throughout the United States. They both died together on a road trip across west Texas.
