He continued his education with a degree in Educational Leadership. Denny was very active in the Dacula, Georgia Athletic Association and enjoyed coaching his sons' sports teams. Denny retired from Gwinnett County Public Schools in 2009 following a rewarding career teaching vocational skills to young adults with special needs. Denny also dedicated his time working with the Gwinnett County Department of Corrections, helping countless inmates earn their GED. Denny moved to Walton County, Florida where he continued to work in special education, earning Teacher of the Year honors before retiring for a second time.

Denny loved working on projects around his home and was skilled at home improvement. He was an avid Steelers and Penn State fan, as well as a talented golfer. He was "Pap Pap" to grandchildren and had a fun-loving relationship with them.
