Dennis was born on January 6, 1957 to Arthur and Shirley Fulton in Rochester, Indiana. He graduated from Rochester High School in 1975. Acknowledging he had a knack for working with his hands, Dennis went on to be a lifelong machinist and worked in the foundry for most of his days.
In April of 1982, Dennis married Karen MacLain (Liedtky) and resided in Plymouth, Indiana. They had a daughter, Brooke and a son, Mason. In May of 1994, Dennis and Karen divorced.
