Dennis was born September 8, 1954, in Stevens Point. He is the son of Roselyn (Fletcher) Barden and the late Kenneth Barden. Dennis attended local grade schools and P.J. Jacobs High School.
His marriage to Cynthia L. Kizewski took place on April 24, 1976, at Immaculate Conception Parish of Custer. His wife Cindy of 42 years survives.
Dennis owned and operated a truck for Rock Ridge Trucking for over 10 years, also owned and operated the Hitchin Rail Bar in Arnott with his wife Cindy for over 33 years. Dennis loved going on vacations, long motorcycle rides and Sunday Funday with the Packer games.
He enjoyed his run to the gas station for his morning coffee, picking asparagus (in his secret spots), making the famous cabbage soup that he shared with many family and friends, and taking a trip to the casino every so often, and will be remembered for his storytelling at the bar.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial in Dennis name will be established at a later date.
