Dennis and Kim raised their family in West Valley and South Jordan Utah. After the kids were raised, they moved to St. George, Utah. Dennis loved to travel, go to movies, eat out and be around his family. A tradition was started to take each of the grandkids on a trip of their choice when they were 10. Dennis looked forward to these trips and loved spending time with his grandkids. Dennis enjoyed attending football, basketball, baseball, choir performances, band performances, dance competitions, or any other activity his family participated in. Dennis was always in the background and making sure his kids and grandkids were fed and taken care of, (if you knew him well you will remember seeing him with a book and whistling a tune).
