He worked in the oil and gas industry in Midland, Texas for many years and retired from Chevron Texaco Pipeline in 2002. He and his wife Beth retired to Leakey, Texas in the Frio Canyon of the Hill Country and lived there several years before settling in Howe, Texas.

Dennis was a die hard Aggie who enjoyed a good Aggie joke. He loved being outdoors, particularly camping and boating with his family. He loved his golden retriever, Dusty and they are playing ball once again. He will be greatly missed.

Dennis was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Beth of Howe; 3 children: Brent Lawless and wife Christine of LaPorte, Texas, Luke Lawless and wife Lauren of Frisco, Texas, and Lacy Bohne and husband Jeff of Bells, Texas; 5 grandchildren: Dennis Andrejczak and wife Brittnay, Jacob Scalzo, Trinity Bohne, Logan Bohne, and Ryan Bohne; and many cousins, aunts, and uncles.
