He later took a job at North Star Foods until they closed their doors after the fire. In his later years, he spent time helping Bill and Jan in the mornings around Good Sports bar. He was a long time member at the Moose Lodge. Dennis played fastpitch softball in St. Charles and enjoyed bowling at the Legion for many years. He also loved to go to the stock car races on weekends and visit his favorite machine at Treasure Island. Dennis' family would like to thank everyone in the community for helping look out for Dennis for all these years.
Dennis is survived by his siblings, Ron, Michael (Joy), Cheryl Heydt, Debbie (Dwight) Phillips and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents and his sister-in-law, Dixie Duellman.

"He was as honest as anyone has ever been. He was a faithful and dedicated employee. He was a loyal Packer fan,and knew a LOT about sports. He was loved by a whole town. I worked with him at Jim?s Red Owl, and then at Good Sport. He lived a full and productive life despite his disabilities. He was my buddy and friend. I miss him, but know that he and Bill will be betting their $5 on every Packer/ Viking game in Heaven. ?"
