Dennis was born November 20, 1944, in Bryan, Texas, to Michael and Naomi Muth. As a young boy he enjoyed playing baseball and squirrel hunting with his grandfather in Wheelock. The undeveloped woods of the Rock Prairie, Bird Pond, and Peach Creek area served as his own personal hunting paradise.

On February 21, 1969, Dennis married Sandra Glass. They had 2 sons and 5 grandchildren. He was an accomplished hunter, hunting many years in Colorado. In 1981, while hunting with his father-in-law, he took a trophy mule deer, making the Boone and Crockett record books. He enjoyed any and all activities that included his grandchildren from sporting events and camping to four wheeler mudding birthday parties. Above all else, he loved the many hunting and fishing trips he took with his sons, grandsons and close friends.
In 2009, he retired as a member of Iron Workers Local #64. He was an active member of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 937. After retiring, his daily routine started at Shipleys, moved to McDonalds, extended to lunch with friends, a possible Blizzard and/or chocolate Frosty, then back to McDonalds and home to his recliner.
