Most importantly, Denny Breer was a genuinely good, caring, and honorable man. He was humble, honest, and he and always had time for the "little guy." For example, I remember about 10 years ago, there were two young "writers" (who had never seen their work in print) and a photographer, working on a book (for which there was no publisher). Denny agreed to be a part of the project and show the group the Green River anyway. On their first attempted trip, it snowed so hard (though they did float part of the day), the group ended up eating popcorn with Denny and his wife, Grace, back at their home in Dutch John... and making plans to return in the spring. When the group returned, Denny floated them for three consecutive days, down the A, B, and C sections, because he wanted them to see the whole river. And he wouldn't take a dime for his efforts when it was all said and done. "You can pay me back by writing good things about the Green," he laughed.
