Dennis was born on May 31, 1952 to Warren and Lorraine (Swanson) Lynch in Minneapolis.
After graduating high school, he was drafted by the Army in 1972 and proudly served his country until 1974 at the Pentagon working for the Joint Chiefs of Staff. On Nov. 20, 1998 he and Susan Hervey (Strohmayer) were married in Las Vegas, Nevada and along with her son Adam they began their lives together.
Den was a very hard worker, loved being active and getting things done. He was organized, detailed oriented and worked as a machinist at Deluxe Check in Shoreview, for many years. Den retired from Carlson Craft in Mankato five years ago. He could fix, maintain and build just about anything, and loved working with his Farmall H tractor.
Den dearly loved his family and friends, and his pup Lily. Den and Sue enjoyed camping in their motorhome, especially with family at Centerville and with their grandkids at Stoney Creek in Wisconsin. They moved to Winnebago in 2001 from Blaine.
Dennis is survived by his wife, Sue: son, Adam (Kelli) Hervey and four precious grandchildren: Easton, Sophie and twins Hank and Hattie; brother, Doug Lynch; sisters: Pat (Tom) Miesner, Pam (Greg) Hoidahl, Deb (Mike) Olberding; brothers-in-law: Scott (Mary) Strohmayer, Andy Strohmayer, sister-in-law: Karen (Jeff Gaspar) Strohmayer and many nieces and nephews.
Dennis is preceded by his parents; his parents-in-law; brother-in-law, Mark Strohmayer; and sister-in-law, Deb Lynch.
