Dennis was a man full of life, fun, and laughter. Even to his final day he was pulling pranks and making those around him laugh. He taught his girls the joys of humor, farming, car-hooding, fishing, mushroom and asparagus hunting, dune buggies, fish fries, and so many of the other best things in life. He will be remembered very much for his humor and love of fun.
Dennis enjoyed being active and outdoors. He would hunt and fish. He knew where all the good asparagus grows. He planted a large garden each year, boasting the earliest and best tomatoes. It gave him pleasure to feed everyone he knew with his amazing produce. When he gathered it all up, Dennis enjoyed turning it into delicious meals or canning it for later. He was a very skilled carpenter and immensely enjoyed it. Dennis began refinishing antique furniture and then building his own beautiful pieces.
