He worked for many years managing the warehouse and distribution for Evan-Picone in North Bergen, NJ, that is where he met his wife Cathy.

Dennis and Cathy moved to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania becoming the owners of the Creekside Inn Bed and Breakfast in Paradise. They enjoyed hosting guests and built many lasting friendships with guests from around the world. While in Paradise they became very friendly with the Amish community and maintain their friendship to this day. Dennis drove for the Fisher family and Shady Lane Curtains. They left Paradise and retired to Lebanon County.
