Dennis graduated from North Judson- San Pierre high school in 1978.  In the spring of 2013, Dennis Graduated from Purdue University North Central with a Bachelor’s degree. He was widely and affectionately known by the nickname “Housecat” although he took the most pride in the nickname “Paw”, which is how all the grandchildren addressed him. Dennis was a proud and loving father and grandfather. He coached his son’s baseball teams for countless years and enjoyed teaching his grandsons about the sport. Dennis enjoyed hunting and fishing throughout his life. He left his grandchildren with fond memories of fishing with Paw. Those moments stuck out to them because of the funny stories he would tell them with a fishing pole in his hand and endless patience. Dennis was loved dearly and will be greatly missed.
