On August 13, 2008, William Lynne "BILL" Denney died at age 63 in Champaign, IL after a long and courageous battle with pancreatic & liver cancer.
Bill's dreams & asperations were cut short with such an early death. He was very positive that one day he would take our line back to the early Denneys in England using the DNA program that he & I initiated & he wanted to write a book on his findings about the Denney families.
The project has been restructered & will be administrated by Barbara Denny George.
