Denny enjoyed spending his free time playing golf, avidly reading, and spending time with family and friends. Denny generously served for the National Guard. He will be missed by all who knew him. Denny is survived by his wife Jean, children; Kelly (Keith) Klein and Bradley Nybo, siblings; Alice (Larry) Balmer and Linda Morshare, grandchildren; Brandon Schwab and Kaylee Schwab.
