Dennis was raised in Cheneyville, Louisiana, where he attended elementary and high school, and where he met the love of his life, Hazel. He and Hazel were life-long members of Beulah Baptist Church where he was a devoted deacon. He was an exemplary farmer as co-partner of McNutt Brothers Farms; he loved the outdoors and the beloved woods in which he hunted since childhood enjoying many domino games at "Armadillo Ranch" and the M&M Hunting Club. He also enjoyed traveling to Colorado during the summer and fall months where he would go elk hunting with his son Reggie. When he wasn't hunting or farming he enjoyed sharing special moments outside on the swing with his daughter Linda.
Pallbearers will be Jeff McNutt, Jarred McNutt, David Broussard, and the deacons of Beulah Baptist Church.
The family would like to sincerely thank Dennis' countless friends and extended family who loved and continue to show their love for Dennis and his family; he was truly blessed.
