On May 10, 1959, Dennis was united in marriage to Dorothy (Peterson) and they made their home north of Litchville, ND, where they farmed. Dorothy and Dennis lived in several areas in the region before settling back in Fargo. He was very proud of his military service in the Korean War. One of his proudest moments was participating in the Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.

Dennis had many occupations, including farming, construction, and manufacturing. He was most proud of his work at WCCO Belting in Wahpeton, ND.

Dennis had a firm and devout faith in God. He was an active member of the Pentecostal Church. Everyone who knew him, knew he had a daily walk with God, and was looking forward to joining his beloved wife in heaven.

    He loved his family and was proud of all of them. I am glad I got to know him and be in Bible Study with him. He is with his beloved wife Dorthy now and they are praising God

    My dad never had an unkind word to say about anyone. He had an unconditional love for everyone. I know personally he loved his grandchildren more than I can express. I love you, Dad. God speed.
