An industrious man, he also worked part time at Slots of Fun, Sundberg Funeral Home and previously at the Verdi Club. Dennis was a life-long member of St. James Catholic Church where he served as an usher and a graduate of St. James and East High Schools. Dennis was a loving, kind, compassionate man - a gentle man and a gentleman. A loving husband and caring son who called his mother daily. He was a loving brother, uncle, and great uncle to all. He had a big heart. Many lives were touched by his loving kindness and generosity. Words cannot express how much he will be missed - our hearts are broken.
