Dennis was the life of every party with his great sense of humor and his warm personality. One time at work, he got offered a raise if he would cut his hair and beard. However, he only got half the raise, so he decided to only shave half of his head and half of his beard! His clever humor made him a favorite with his grandchildren. He loved kids, and he worked hard to be supportive for them in whatever they were passionate about.
Dennis also loved to play games with the children at family holidays, especially Left Right Center. Last Christmas, one of the kids accidentally leaned over a candle and lit a tissue on fire. While everyone scrambled to put out the flame, Dennis just sat back and asked if everyone was ready to play the game!
Dennis was an outdoorsy man who loved to work with his hands. He used his talents as a mechanic to help out, like when he would fix his daughter Katlee’s car. When he was able, he took his trailer down near Pennsylvania for camping trips with his friends. He was also an avid fisherman, and he loved bringing his fishing gear with him camping.
