Dennis met his wife Natalie in Sarasota after they both graduated from Riverview High School. They began their family in the West Palm Beach area where they served in PCA churches before taking their three daughters to South America to serve with MTW (Mission to the World) for the next 16 years. They returned to North America in 2006 and were glad to settle in Sarasota where they still had family. While in South America, they had become members of FPC and are glad to call this home again. It is close to their two granddaughters in Ft Myers.
