He enjoyed the outdoors and the birds including his own cockatoo named Buddy. He enjoyed sports like the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Rangers and loved Elvis Presley and John Wayne movies.
Dennis was Baptist by Faith and attended Spring Creek Independent Baptist Church. He truly loved the Lord and going to church. The Lord was his number One. He was a remarkable man that will be missed greatly by all those who knew and loved him.

He is survived by his mother Sue Spakes of Kemp, brothers Steve Spakes and Marlin Spakes of Kemp, sister Debbie Baker of Eustace, numerous beloved nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, extended family and many more friends.
