The Malone family resided in Tell City, Indiana and moved to the west end of Louisville when Dennis was about 9 years old. Dennis attended St. Benedict School and graduated from Louisville Male High School in 1958. He began working at the local A&P at around the age of 15, and with the money he earned he was able to buy the first of his beloved automobiles. Dennis joined the Kentucky Army National Guard in the early 1960’s, he was married to Carole Ann Holloway in 1963 and his son, Mark, was born in 1964. Over the years Dennis progressed to the position of Produce Manager at A&P and worked at various location in the Louisville area for 27 years. In 1982 A&P closed in the Louisville region and he was then hired by Louisville Gas & Electric as a station helper at the Mill Creek power station. Dennis advanced to a Plant Operator and transferred to the Trimble County power station where he also had the distinct honor of being an instructor.
In 1992 Dennis and his partner, Ron moved to Buckner, Kentucky, and they enjoyed living there for 30 years. Dennis retired from LG&E in 2001, yet in his hard-working spirit, he continued to work as a contractor for them as an instructor until 2008.
