Death of police veteran will not halt planned celebration of his life

Original post made on Mar 3, 2014

Dennis Neverve, whose career in the Palo Alto Police Department spanned more than 46 years and included more than 100 commendations, died suddenly Sunday night, just two weeks after he retired from the force and one day before the city was set to pass a resolution in his honor. He was 70.

I have been Barbara's neighbor for 15 years and was there last night. She and her family are absolutely devastated. Thank you to all of the EMT's, fire & police staff, who all came to them instantly and tried their best to help Dennis!! Mostly, thank you to Dennis for bringing so much love and happiness to Barbara and her family. Midtown will miss you, Dennis!!! <3

What a great man. It's too bad that his type of professionalism is a "throw back".

My wife and I have know Dennis for many years. His passing is very sad . I accompanied Denny to many races with his "No Limit" dragster. His perseverance was never lost no matter how the car ran,pure dedication. Really no surprise because that was the kind of man he was,dedicated to do his best in whatever it was he was doing. Proud to have know you Dennis. Rest in Peace our friend.

Dennis was the real deal, the good guy, a neighborhood Cop, he was interested at all times, wanted to put things in a real light -take note folks, it's the end of an era...notice the Revolver in the pic from recent times-he was allowed that based on his legacy. If he wasn't a Cop, he would have been a legend in another way, race car driver, movie star or...? 1967, Palo Alto was another world, light years away from now and you lived through the times and made a difference! Thanks Denny. RIP

He was one of the only officers that I considered approachable and fair. He is a hard act to follow. Hopefully his legacy will live on for others in the department to follow up to.....RIP, you are missed Dennis.
