He attended Capitol School for elementary school and went to Woods School in Langhorne, PA for about two years for special training for his C.P. condition. When he returned to Juneau, he was not allowed attend high school so he began working in the

He began working for the Department of Agriculture (Forest Service) in 1964 and retired in 1986.
Denny traveled extensively with his parents by train, plane and cruise ship all over the world missing only China and France. He made many trips across Canada and the United States with his friends, Bruce & Judith Morley. He also enjoyed trips to Hawaii, California, Nevada, Washington, Oregon and Arizona with his housemates and caregivers from Northland REACH Assisted Living Home. His love of travel was only trumped by his love of fine cuisine. Denny was always up for a good meal at a fine restaurant, or even not so fine a restaurant.
