Dennis met and married the love of his life, SuEllen Smith, in January of 1980. Dennis worked many years for The Great Put On in Flint, where he sold thousands of t-shirts. He was an amazing salesman and could sell anything to anyone. Dennis had the best flower garden around and enjoyed tending to his flower beds.

Another of his favorite hobbies was attending any car show that displayed custom hot rods and classic cars. In his free time, Dennis enjoyed fishing, watching All in the Family, and eating at the A in Flushing. He loved children and had a great sense of humor and always made his beloved wife laugh. He will be greatly missed.
