The family would also like to send a special thank you to Dr. T.C. Cole of Huntsville for over 30 years of extraordinary care provided to Dennis.

Dennis grew up in Corsicana where he was an avid football player. He then proudly served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam war. After his honorable discharge, he graduated from Stephen F.

After 20 years of forestry he took a job at the Sam Houston State Memorial Museum where he could share his love of Texas History with others. He retired from the museum after 26 years of working. He will be terribly missed by all that knew and loved him.
