Denny worked for John Deere before moving back home to Des Moines to help care for his parents until their passing. He was a free spirit who lived life the way he wanted to. He loved feeling the wind in his hair, whether he was on the water, fishing in his boat or going for a ride on his Harley. He loved trying new things and experiences. In fact, he was a talented cook, with a passion for bbq, who enjoyed experimenting with traditional dishes to make them unique (and in his opinion- better). Most of all, he was fiercely protective of his family and friends. Denny had a big personality that was hard to ignore and he will be missed by those who knew him.
He is survived by his daughters, Lori (Terry) Elvrom and Carrie Weems; grandchildren, Paige, Lydia, Thomas and Cooper; brother, Richard (Cindy) Weems; nephew, Jason (Ashley) Weems; great niece, Kinsley, as well as several other extended family members.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. The date and time will be posted here when plans and arrangements are confirmed. The family humbly requests that friends share their memories, and especially photos, of Denny in the Photos, Videos and Stories section of the online obituary.
