Educational Background

Family
Dennis married his beautiful wife, the former Ms. Reynolds in the Los Angeles Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Together they have four wonderful children, and a beautiful grandchild.   We grew up in Southern California, then moved to Utah where our last child was born. In 1997 they uprooted their little family and moved to a suburb just southwest of Tokyo, Japan, and lived there for 11 years. After Japan, they took their now bigger family (size not number!) and moved to Germany, to a beautiful resort community south of Kaiserslautern.
