    So sad to hear of his passing. ADC Dennis Alvarez was an old school Coastie. I first met him back in 1982 at USCG Air Station Kodiak in Alaska when he was a First Class Petty Officer and I a young snot nose third class. I learned a lot from Dennis my first few years in CG aviation and he even helped me to become a flight engineer. Even though it has been many years since we last saw each other I still look upon those years with great fondness and respect for him. He will be missed. My deepest condolences to the Alvarez family.
    Rest now my brother we will carry on from here. Semper Paratus

    My best memory of cousin Dennis goes back to the 60’s when he and cousin Nicky Lamar threw around a football with me in our back yard. They were much older but treated me like I was one of them. Thanks cousin for that great memory. Enjoy Paradise, see you when I get there.

    Dear Family,
    I knew Dennis many years ago when we served together in the Coast Guard. I remember him as two things, proud to be father and proud to be a coastie. He was a generous soul and will be missed. I am sorry for your loss.

    Good Bye old friend. You taught me so much about the Herk. Will never forget our prop change in Attu. Rest in Peace.

    It was many years ago we worked together at Air Station Kodiak. Dennis always had a smile on his face and like most Coasties, a great sense of humor. Rest in Peace Brother!
