I first met Dennis and Lynda at church (Harvest Christian Fellowship) back in about 2010. I had started Chaplaincy training, and Lynda was our worship leader. When i had found out that Dennis was also a motorcycle enthusiast, well we had a lot to talk about. Later i found out that he also sold Life Insurance, so he provided that service for me and my family as well!
Dennis always had such a gentle and kind nature, he always wore a smile and was willing to help wherever he could. I was blessed to have called him my friend, and i know he has many. He had such a strong faith in Jesus, i know that we shall meet again. May the God of all comfort be with Lynda and the rest of the family……

My name is Ivan, I came to the Lord because of Dennis. He taught me what it meant to follow Jesus and how to be a man, he was a menor a role model and my dear friend. Because of Dennis and his faithfulness to the Lord I know am sober, lead my own Bible study group serve at church and on my way to hopefully become a pastor. Dennis taught me many things that I will always carry with me. It was the Lords work through Dennis that I am the man I am now.

Dennis gave encouragement and edification to everyone he met. He is my Christian brother and was strong in his faith and studies. What a fun and noble brother to have had on this earth! We will miss you Dennis and will see you on that coming day of glory!

Met Dennis at church. Found out he rode motorcycles and we hit it off. Thousands of miles off riding together make us eternal friends. His riding injuries brought us closer together. There were many.

I will miss his laugh and our hour long phone conversations.

We can all be comforted knowing that his is with our Lord now.

Obituary Part 2:
Dennis was born in Anchorage, Alaska on August 24, 1960. His parents moved to Arkansas, then to Iowa, and eventually settled in Haysville, KS where Dennis graduated from Campus High School. Summers were spent helping on the family farm in Iowa. He was a talented musician, playing the trumpet in band and attending Wichita State University on a band scholarship. Dennis moved from his hometown to Grand Terrace, CA at the age of 19 to pursue competitive dance and figure rollerskating. He soon moved on to riding motorcycles participating in off-road desert racing. He started his career in the retail motorcycle parts industry setting up a mail order parts business for Kawasaki of Riverside and then managed the parts department for Malcom Smith Motorsports. He travelled as far as Chile in his cycling adventures. He also found out that driving off cliffs can leave a mark and that running into cows can be messy. Driving back from one ride in Mexico he was kidnapped and ransomed for $20.

He was set up on a blind date by a coworker who knew a girl that had the same sense of humor as Dennis and on March 4, 1988, he met his soulmate, Lynda. They married in 1990 and made their home in Moreno Valley. Much to Lynda’s relief, Dennis retired his motorcycles and moved into the financial industry in 2008 working for Met Life. He went on to start his own business, Dresher Financial Group, as an Independent Financial Advisor where he was very dedicated to providing the best advice and solutions he could find for each and every client.

Obituary Part 3:
Dennis enjoyed hiking in the hills near their house with Lynda and they would often head up to the San Bernardino National Forest to camp, ride their bikes and enjoy the outdoors. He loved to travel with Lynda and good friends in their RV to the nation’s beautiful national parks as well as to visit family when they could. He has been known to show up at Halloween parties with Lynda as Sonny and Cher and to croon ‘Islands in the Stream’ as Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. There are more than a few pictures where he and Lynda are wearing silly hats, dancing with mannequins or crossing their eyes. He loved being with family and getting to know all of his nieces and nephews and he and Lynda somehow became known as Aunt Dennis and Uncle Lynda.

Dennis loved the Lord deeply and his great desire was for everyone to know God’s grace, mercy, and boundless love. He was very active in his church ministry leading small groups, providing Biblical counseling, participating on mission trips to natural disaster areas, and training chaplains to go out on such missions. Dennis traveled from Los Angeles to Galveston in a van with nine others to minister to survivors after a hurricane. He got the nickname ‘Skippy’ on that trip because of his ever-present energy and positive attitude. He and Lynda went to Paradise, CA after the devastating fire and comforted those who had lost everything by sharing the eternal hope of Christ. He had such a huge heart with great compassion and love for people. We know as Dennis entered into the Lord’s presence he heard God’s voice saying, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.’
