Dennis is the son of Gerhardt and Irene Hilgendorf (nee Gierach). He went to Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO. He married Ellen Bruskewitz in August of 1960.
Dennis was called to minister in Beirut, Lebanon. His ministry there flourished. He and his wife had five children. He suffered a massive heart attack and died while on a furlough back to the U.S.
God had called him home to receive his rewards and to hear the words "Well done, thy good and faithful servant."
In addition to his funeral service at the church here, there was also a memorial service in Beirut on December 6th with nearly one thousand in attendance to honor Dennis.
