Dennis was born to Ralph and Helen Wake in Peoria, 111.
On August 24, 1937 his family moved to Bartlesville at
an early age and he attended school in Bartlesville
graduating from College High with the class of 1956. He
then attended Oklahoma State University then on to the
Navy where he sang in the Navy Choir. Dennis started his
career with Phillips 66 in Kansas City. He moved to Los
Angeles California where his sales started career. He
worked for Firestone tire and rubber co. where he had an

and was a member of Pontiac Master sales Guild and Buick
Professional Sales master clubs and was a leader in
sales in the dealer zone of these brands for several
Unca Den as he liked to be called by family and close
friends loved to tell stories of his past sales and
meeting of characters and famous celebrities, and he
told those stories with accuracy right up to his final
hours. Unca Den also loved to tell jokes, this was very
entertaining to all, not due to the content of the jokes
but by the amount of tears he would generate laughing so
hard while telling them.

their home in Bartlesville since that time. They enjoyed
travel (by car only!) and entertaining by the pool.
