Mr. Denekas was a member of the NRA, liked country music and Elvis music. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, playing his guitar, and his movie idol was Marilyn Monroe. Of all the “things” in life he enjoyed, nothing gave him greater pleasure than spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
