BATAVIA, IL — When times are tough, heroes emerge. We all know someone who’s making a difference right now as we live through unprecedented and changing times.
Here at Patch, we’ve launched an initiative to help recognize these heroes making a difference in their communities. We’re working to let all your neighbors know about these outstanding people and their stories.
This submission comes from Chuck Toth who nominated his friend, Dennis Piron of Batavia.

Why do you believe the local hero should be recognized or honored?
Dennis has been teaching and coaching kids for years. His biggest asset is he truly loves to see everyone of his students and players succeed. I remember him one time telling his football team before a game that no matter what happens that he will always love them! Sounds probably a little strange to some, but to me it shows the care he has for everyone.
What’s one thing you want everyone to know about the local hero?
He has the biggest heart!
Thank you for all you do, Dennis Piron!
