Halseth. Also survived by his nephews, Jamie Smith, Richard Carter, and Joshua Carter, as well as his niece, Brandilyn Towne. He was a Field Wireman and Munitions Driver in the U.S. Army and Retired from the Army National Guard. He served honorably during the Gulf war, Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. Dennis had a true passion for billiards and would spend much of his free time shooting pool at the local pool hall. He had a love for science fiction (especially Star Trek), romantic films, and classic TV shows. He also liked cooking and spending time with friends as well. He was a man of God and he will be forever missed by his family, friends, and all those who served alongside him. A memorial service will be announced later.
