The beginning of Denny’s success as a salesman began at age 16 when he started selling magazines door to door in his community. Denny then worked for Burlington Industries and before retiring at age 53, he worked for Aris Isotoner. He was a graduate of Cathedral High School and Marian College.
Denny enjoyed gardening, playing tennis, bike riding, and family vacations to FL. Many fond memories were made when the family visited the different amusement parks.
