    Dennis was born October 30, 1932 to the late Henry & Hazel (Desormeau) DeDeker in Appleton, WI. He grew up in Beloit, WI, attended the local schools, and graduated from Beloit Memorial High School in 1950.

    He was inducted into the U.S. Army and served in Germany during the Cold War. He was honorably discharged in 1955.

    Following his service to his country, Dennis attended UWSP, earning his Bachelor's degree in 1958 in Educational Conservation. He was a Conservation & Biology teacher and JV Basketball Coach at P.J. Jacobs High School and SPASH until his retirement in 1988.

He dedicated his life to sports; coaching high school basketball, refereeing basketball games, umpiring women's fast pitch softball, running the time clock at UWSP football games, or just attending or listening to games on his radio. He also enjoyed camping, hunting, and traveling, but his favorite hobby was fishing. He was one of the few to start up the Boston School Forest program.
