Dennis was loved by so many people and will be missed by many others. He was such a hard working man and never complained about anything. The students at USU loved him so much they did a fundraiser for him to go to California to see one of his favorite teams the Dodgers.

There wasn’t a sport he didn’t watch and know everything about.
Dennis also had a love for Country Music and loved going to concerts with his kids. Dennis was most happy when he was with his kids and grandkids. He had such a fun sense of humor and was always teasing everyone. He was always the life of the party.
