Dennis was in the 101st Airborne in the Vietnam War. He has earned three Purple Hearts and many other medals for his service.
Additionally, Dennis was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2012 after his wife passed away in 2008 of cancer, but he has won his battle with the disease and remains cancer free.
Dennis was nominated by his daughter Kim who says he is a wonderful father and someone a lot of people in Ravenna rely on. She's very proud of him and says that he has been the glue that holds their family together.
Dennis, we thank you for your service to our country.
