Dennis was born in Graceville, MN, on March 14, 1949, the only son born to Clarence and Rosa (Neiderbaumer) Carlson. He grew up and attended school in Wheaton, MN. He then helped his father on the family farm for a few years until he enlisted in the US Army. On July 4, 1969, while on leave during his basic training, Dennis was united in marriage to Madonna Bernard in Wheaton, MN. He proudly served his country for five years and then was reunited with his family in the Wheaton area. He worked for various farmers until 1976, when they moved to the Iron Range in northern Minnesota, and Dennis worked in the Taconite Mines. Then in 1986, they moved back to the Red River Valley and he went to work for Primewood Industries in Wahpeton, ND, where he remained employed for 18 years. At the time of his retirement, they resided in Campbell.
In his spare time, Dennis loved tinkering in his shop and the solace of fishing. He also enjoyed playing cards and spending time with family and friends.
