He attended Edinboro University as an aspiring scholar of history. Following that he had an accomplished career of 35 years at General Electric before retiring to Ocala, FL in 2009. He remained passionately informed about current events. Throughout his life he loved family vacations, whether it was roughing it at camp or spending it in a luxury hotel suite. Among some of his favorite destinations were the National Parks, especially Yellowstone. Dennis was thrilled with all aspects of travel, from the planning to the journey itself. Despite having to suffer the ravages of cancer, he endured with a positive outlook, a smile on his face, and kept his quirky sense of humor. In his own words: “The mountains are calling and I must go.”
