Dennis was a fun loving guy…always joking and making people laugh. You could usually find him at Casey’s for his morning coffee and biscuits ‘n’ gravy, or cruising around with his dogs. He dedicated his life to his kids, he did whatever his kids wanted…this later passed on to his grandkids, he loved spending time with them. Dennis also enjoyed helping farmers at harvest time.
