He was an accountant for a car dealership and a deputy sheriff. After working for the Texas Education Agency as an auditor traveling the state, Dennis went to work for Highland Park ISD where he retired 25 years later as Assistant Superintendent. He loved hunting, fishing, and playing cards. After retirement he owned a data collection company and part of several oil wells. He lived in the Dallas area for over 50 years and was a member of the Park City Baptist Church during that time. After moving to Conroe, he joined First United Methodist Church.
