He especially loved coaching his sons in youth basketball and baseball. His love of baseball showed throughout his lifetime to include hoping every year when he received his renewal for the Baseball Hall of Fame Membership that he would finally be voted in. He was an avid fan of the UNI Panthers, MN Gophers, Vikings, Twins and the NDSU Women’s Basketball team, while his son, Will, worked for the program. He enjoyed golfing with his sons while trying to teach Connie the game. “A year ago, stopping by the local shelter, Jessee (dog), interviewed Connie and Dennis. Jessee wanted to make sure Dennis and Connie got along with each other and other humans, was house-broken, current on shots, etc. Jessee then determined they were the ones that needed to be rescued, not her, and chose them.” Dennis Sorensen. Those left to cherish memories of Dennis are Connie Severson (Breitbach), his sons, Christian and William, his mother, Mardelle, two brothers, Doug (Deb) and David (Pattie), and his two step children, Alex Severson and Michelle Severson.
