He was born April 14th, 1953 to Carroll (Dean) and Pat (Waldo) Baugh in Wichita, Kansas. At 3 years old, his family moved to Grand Meadow, Minnesota. Dennis grew up in a family of 8, which included 5 sisters. At age 14, while at church, Dennis met his love, Cheri. Dennis graduated from Grand Meadow High School in June 1971. A short few months later, he and Cheri were united in marriage on September 3rd, 1971 in Spring Valley, MN. They set up a home in Ostrander, where they welcomed their first child, Tricia. Shortly after, they moved to Spring Valley where their family grew with the addition of their son Branden and another daughter Keri. In 1976 they packed up and moved to Jefferson, Iowa where they welcomed their last daughter, Bridget to the family. In 1984, they moved to Arizona where they stayed for a few short years before deciding to head back to Iowa. In 1991, they left Iowa and moved to Grand Meadow, Minnesota where they remained for 28 years until they finally made their last move together to Austin, Minnesota in 2019.
Dennis retired from International Paper in 2012 and spent lots of time with his family. In his leisure time, he loved to camp, garden, and watch his grandchildren play sports. His faith was very important to him. He attended church regularly at Cornerstone Church in Austin, MN.
