In Dennis’ growing up years in Bovill he was known and “Dennis The Menace”, and lived up to it daily. Later he was known as a “dumpster diver” where he found many treasures – so he said!
He was always ready for a drink with friends and would give you the shirt off his back if he liked you. Dennis was a cantankerous ole fart in his later years. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, collecting antiques and riding around in his 1966 multi-million dollar Chevy convertible.
He married Sherry Browning from Deary in August 1967 and later divorced. Together they had two sons, Dennis White Jr. (Wendy) of Spokane and Dock (Kari) White of Edgewood, WA.
