Dennis worked as a Recorder on the Pickle Line at the Burns Harbor steel mill for 47 years. He was known for his home improvement projects and had a natural knack for fixing things.

He was passionate about old trucks particularly Internationals and Scouts. He cherished his wife and was her confidant. Dennis loved his family more than anything and was happiest when he was with them. He very much enjoyed sitting on his back deck visiting with family and friends.

He passed away after bravely battling complications from diabetes. Dennis will be greatly missed by his family and friends, however, he will live on in our hearts.
