He was involved in the community and most recent with his association In the Sarasota Elks Club where he and his friends always provided lunch time humor and was Dennis's village of support. In 1958, Dennis migrated to the U.S. and valued his earned U.S. Citizenship. He started his career as a cameraman for WILX Channel 10 in Jackson, MI. Dennis grew to produce Championship Wrestling and in 1966 found opportunity in St. Petersburg as a producer for WSUN TV at the original Million Dollar Pier. His career took a turn into advertising and retired as a publisher of See Magazine and throughout the Southeast was affectionately recognized for his contributions to the Chamber of Commerce Magazines you see today. Dennis's slight British accent, quick witted sense of humor and flirtatious smile provided the personality that could sell ice to an Eskimo. Dennis made a difference everywhere he went and most importantly with his family.
