Dennis Steven was born November 5, 1957, the son of Norbert and Loretta (Dean) Boge in Charles City, IA. He attended and graduated from Nashua High School. After completing his education, Dennis worked concrete construction building rural elevators. He also worked as a tree trimmer and general construction worker throughout the years. Dennis was always an independent, free spirit and lived life on his terms. In his time away from work, Dennis was found submersed in nature. Whether he was hunting, fishing, agate or mushroom hunting, and gardening, one could be sure to find him in the woods, by the river and bicycling. Dennis was never afraid to dive in when someone needed help. Dennis is survived by his daughter, Christina Starkey of Mason City, IA; his sisters, Lucille (Claire) Lane of Charles City, Faye Barr of Cedar Falls, IA, MaryLou (Bernd) Richter of Ionia, Carol (Gary) Goddard of Nashua, IA and Janet Poe of Minneapolis, MN; his brother, Arnie (Carol) Boge of Ionia; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers, Bob and Leon Boge; and his brothers-in-law, Gary Poe, Dennis Barr, Bernd Richter and Rodney Barnes.
