Seelen was born on August 8, 1944 to the late Joseph and Deloria (Boser) Seelen. He was united in marriage to the late Patricia Hoheisel in 1965. Patty passed away in 2013 and in 2015 Dennis married Christine Marie. He often said how lucky he was to love and be loved by two such wonderful women. Dennis graduated from Father Pierz Memorial High School and attended St. Cloud State University and technical career training. He was soon hired by IBM or “Big Blue” as Dennis called it. He worked there for 30 years before leaving to form a small computer consulting business, K & S Consulting, along with a former IBMer. After running the small company for a few years, he tried to retire but someone always needed a “little” computer help and Dennis would be back in the computer business. Eventually, he was successfully retired and could pursue his other full-time love FISHING! He started fishing Pierz Fish Lake when he was in grade school and evidently knew every successful fishing hole on the lake. After actually achieving retirement, he pursued interests such as hunting, golf, bowling and still lots of fishing. Dennis loved his children, Michael and Susan and always remained close to family and friends. He was a lifelong member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Pierz. Dennis was deeply involved in many civic projects that affect the residents in the Fish Lake area. Dennis is survived by his wife, Christine Marie of Pierz; son Michael (Kathleen) Seelen of Golden Valley; daughter, Susan Kremers of St. Cloud who is the mother of Dennis’s grandson, Bradley, the apple of his grandpa’s eye; stepsons, Craig Cint (Anna) of Zimmerman and Jason Cint of Eagan; step-granddaughter, Abigail; sisters, Carol Hoheisel of Pierz, Karen Carver of Little Falls, Joelle (Clyde) Hayes of Lastrup, Joyce (Ben) Collins of Reno, NV; aunts, Evie (Ronald) Boser of Pierz and Terry (Harvey) Block of Hillman; uncle, Michael (Lorraine) Boser of Osseo. Dennis was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Deloria Seelen; first wife, Patricia Hoheisel; brother-in-law, Gene Carver; nephews, James Hoheisel and Mark Carver.
