Dennis worked in the Navy as a Seabee from 1970 to 1973. He enjoyed talking about his work at the radio station, constructing bridges and his navy buddies.
Dennis was known as a jack of all trades. His charisma, fearlessness and love for risk taking gave him the ability to try anything. Dennis worked with his father at D&B Construction in Sioux City, IA in his early years leading to a degree in drafting. He owned an auto repair shop in Hartford, SD (Auto Creations and Care Center) as well as a cargo airplane business (Air Cargo Masters) in Sioux Falls, SD. In his life he was a Soldier, Construction Worker, Entrepreneur, Auto Mechanic, Race Car Driver, Airplane Pilot, Dairy Farm Hand and Maintenance Man.
Dennis was a friend to anyone. He was born to ride, whether it was a race car, snowmobile, horse or motorcycle. He was known as a hardworking, cowboy at heart. He loved Nascar, carpentry, his family and his dog Fred.
Dennis is preceded in death by his parents, Dale and Shirley and niece Misty. He is survived by his four daughters, Dana (Ryan) Irvine, Deanna (Josh) Johnson, Dawn (Josh) Johnson, and Denise (Shaun) Thelander, twelve grandchildren, his two sisters, Jeana (Don) Bailey and Joy (Bernie) Peterson, and several nieces and nephews.

My condolences to the family. I treasure so many memories with Denny. I'm sorry I can't be there with you to celebrate his life. My favorite memory is the Thanksgiving we shared at my Harrisburg acreage. Denny, the pilots, and you girls. I bought a HyVee turkey and we ate at the big table constructed on the pool table in the dining room. It was so special. My thoughts and prayers are with you today. Wade

I find myself feeling caught completely off guard by this news. I really wish I would have taken the time to track him down, and thank Denny for all he did for me. From a wet behind the ears kid, to where I am today flying Boeing aircraft all around the world, it all started because this guy have me an opportunity. He saw the good in people and fostered potential. He was hardworking, he was brash, he believed that a handshake made a deal, and he was the kind of person that was sometimes rough around the edges but held a heart of gold inside. He will always be a part of my story and I will forever be indebted. Thank you for all you did for myself and others. Rest easy friend.

So sorry to hear this. We have so many memories with all of your Family from years gone by. Your mom and dad were the best, and you Kids all followed in their footsteps. Denny babysat for us one night, but when the next time rolled around the Kids all wanted Jeanna or Joy to come! I had to laugh, figured Denny must of made them mind a little bit more ! LOL.. So many years have passed since then, but we still have wonderful Memories. Our prayers go out to all of his Family, we know he will be missed terribly. Times like this are very difficult to say the least. We won't be able to attend the Funeral services, but know that we will be thinking of you. Love from Ron and Karen Sherrill
