He was stationed in Vietnam and was honorably discharged in 1964. Denny worked as a truck driver for Chemi-Trol.


Denny was a member of Hayes Memorial United Methodist Church and a past member of the American Legion in both Ohio and Pennsylvania. He enjoyed hunting and was very proud of his 9-point buck he shot. He loved to fish, camp, and go to the cabin in Pennsylvania. Denny was an avid Penn State and Pittsburgh Steeler fan. In his spare time, he enjoyed fruit trees and his gardens. Denny also enjoyed sprint cars and drag racing.
