Dennis lived a independent life but never missed a birthday or Holiday party when the family had them. He was always the first to RSVP. Dennis was a kind, caring person but was always quick with a joke or would tease you.

Dennis loved going to shooting ranges, hunting and guitar lessons. In his younger years he would ride horses and work on cars.
