  1. Dennis was a great Friend. He never got over his son Joey being killed. Dennis said Joey best friend was also at the scene and ran when the suspects had guns on him and Joey. Joey was killed by gun shot as the friend ran. Dennis rest in peace with Joey

  2. I remember as a child watching FELONY SQUAD..my older Sister had a Crush on Dennis Cole's
    character, and so did I…he was sooooo Handsome 'back-in-the-day'…! He was also on another TV Show called BRAKEN'S WORLD, a story about the goings-on in a Hollywood Studio, and he had a starring
    role..He was even better looking then; the older he got, the better he looked. Even the last few pictures
    of him-of course he aged, maybe put on some weight, but still aged fairly well….
    Sorry to hear he died.
    A sad goodbye to a great actor!
