Denny attended St Francis University in Ft Wayne, earning a bachelor’s degree while playing baseball and golf. Denny worked in production management for different manufacturing companies throughout a long career, finally retiring from Quikrete in June of 2023. Denny’s real love was coaching, and he coached basketball for well over 20years. He started with his son in grade school and coached his last game while coaching his oldest grandson, Brayden in 2018. In the years since, you could always find him at a gym or ballfield watching his grandkids play. The kids always knew they could count on him for a trip to the concession stand for a snack with Grampie. Denny was always the life of the party, he loved meeting new people and learning about them, he truly never knew a stranger. He was a diehard Notre Dame football fan, loved the Detroit Tigers, and Wolfie’s Bar and Grill.
