In his earlier years, Dennis worked in the maintenance department at Parker High School. In 1996, he took employment at GMAD until 2008. After he left GMAD, he owned and operated a roofing contracting business until his health declined. Dennis enjoyed rebuilding cars, working in his garden, hunting, fishing and playing pool. He was an excellent pool player, playing in many leagues and winning many championships. Dennis was a kind gentleman with a big heart, who would do anything to help anyone out.
