He married Sara (Cosper) Miller on Feb. 17, 2001 at Weyerts Immanuel Lutheran Church in Lodgepole, NE.

Denny was very proud of a 30-year career as an Officer and Sergeant with the Lincoln Police Dept. working in a number of units including the Center Team, NW Team, Narcotics Unit and the Investigations Unit.

Denny enjoyed nature and traveling with his wife Sara across the United States as well as across Europe, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia. His favorite place by far was Jackson Hole, the Grand Tetons and Estes Park. Denny loved spending time with his grandchildren and he never lost his love of the farming community where he grew up.

He is survived by his grandchildren Davian, Malia and Nia Jones, Koby and KeeLee Hall, Nolan & Payton Koziol and Cooper and Clara Menzel. He is also survived by aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. Denny was preceded in death by his mother Frances Faye Miller of Dalton, NE, his father-in- law and mother-in-law Harold and Mary Cosper of Lincoln.

Private family graveside service was held at Weyerts Immanuel Lutheran Church, Lodgepole, NE on Saturday, December 19th. Cremation/No visitation.
