He was born in Toledo, Ohio on January 30, 1943, a son of Henry and Zuleen (Richards) Krebs.
Denny was a 1962 graduate of Westwood High School, and was a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War, serving in Germany.

An avid wood carver, he was a member of the Black Swamp Woodcarvers and the International Woodfowl Carver’s Association. Denny enjoyed traveling, fishing, and hunting, but especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren.
