Dennis was a loving husband, father, step-father, bonus dad, uncle, grandfather, great grandfather, boss, and friend to many. He was a workaholic all his life. He started his work life at a very young age as his father passed away from Polio when he was three. He worked on his uncle’s farm during the summer months and the only pay he got was ten dollars, which he spent at the county fair.
In high school he had a job before school, which he got up early to do in Homer at Dad’s Dogfood. He was in the Army National Guard. He worked himself up to manager at McDonalds. At the same time, he worked part-time as a contractor and roofer. He then quit McDonalds to start his own contracting and roofing business Sav-A-Lot. The last ten years of his life he formed the Sav-A-Lot trash company where he had his own customers and did one-time pick-ups. He was very outstanding with his customers.
He also loved to collect many things: signs, steins, bells, teapots, cookie jars, and much more. If he liked it, he collected it. Friday nights were date night with his wife, Jean, where they frequented the Locke auction. Other things he liked was his camp, campfires, and spending time with his family. His job always came first and if he spent five hours working, he also made it a saying to come home and work for five hours. He loved mowing lawns, gardening, and helping neighbors out with these things.
He also loved going to church at Dresserville Bible Baptist where he planned on becoming a member. His love for Jesus and his love for the church family were very important to him.
