Denny was born on August 18, 1953, in Dubuque, Iowa, the son of M.K. “Mike” and Eileen (Stierman) White.

Denny grew up in the Dubuque and Kieler, Wisconsin area. He graduated from Dubuque Hempstead High School and went on to attend PLU in Tacoma, Washington. Denny worked for UPS in Tacoma, but his favorite job was with White Florist in Dubuque. He had a love and passion for music, being a gifted guitarist himself. During his high school years, Denny played in a popular band. He was also an avid reader and history buff. Denny loved to walk, and his daily walks would usually take him to see some of the friends that he had made at one of his favorite restaurants such as Maid Rite, Dominos, Village Inn, Kentucky Fried Chicken, McDonald’s, Arby’s or the Mining Company. Denny was a kind soul and will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
