Dennis was a graduate of Alpena High School where he earned the nickname of “Packer” while playing football. Dennis went on to graduate from Wyotech University where he obtained his degree. He worked several years for General Motors Corporation in technical support. He enjoyed that immensely as it took him all over the United States and Mexico.
