Dennis graduated from Toledo Central Catholic, then attended and graduated from the University of Dayton, where he met the love of his life and wife of 55 years, Virginia Rose Gietl.   Dennis returned to Toledo, where he would start and finish his career at his Alma Mater. During his 42-year tenure with Central Catholic, he served as a teacher, football coach,Athletic Director, and Dean of Men.

Dennis was inducted into the Central Catholic Athletic Hall of Fame in 1990 for his on-field football performance and later for being a member of the 1962 State Championship team.  He received a four-year football scholarship to the University of Dayton, where he became a 3-year letter recipient.

Due to his love for football, Dennis served as a coach for St. Agnes School, part of the Catholic Youth Organization. This opportunity allowed him to share his passion with his own children and numerous other players as he continued to coach and mentor well after his children moved on.

Dennis was an avid golfer,playing 4-5 days a week with his wife Virginia. He also had a knack for woodworking and enjoyed designing, creating, and gifting his work to family and friends. Another passion he possessed was sharing his love for slot car racing with his grandchildren.
