Dennis was a self-employed carpenter (jack of all trades) and also worked for Larry Danko for many years. Dennis was a lifelong member of the Norfolk Volunteer Fire Department and had a deep love for country music and singing. He was always willing to give a hand, without asking for anything in return. He was quick witted, always having a joke or a phrase. Some of his most notables included “Allegedly,” “I spent my last quarter on you,” Don’t ever apologize, it’s a sign of weakness,” and “C’mon-C’mon.” Dennis was also known by his nieces and nephews as “Grumpy Den.” He loved Swedish Fish, pickles and cheese, and a cold Coors Light in a can.
