Dennis endured much at an early age when his family was separated. When he was barely 12 years old, he began working as an assistant, setting up electrical poles. He experienced many moments of pain and anguish since he was abused at work and taken advantage of because of his innocence. Over time, he became stronger and knowledgeable in all parts of his job.
