Dennis Dibble enlisted in the Army in 1976 after graduating high school and served three years of active duty at Fort Bragg in the 82 Airborne as a paratrooper and sheet metal man, performing repairs on the aircraft. “If we couldn’t fix it, it would go to the junkyard, but we never sent anything to the junkyard!” After his three years at Fort Bragg, Dennis joined the Army Reserves and moved to Fort Omaha spending 2.5 years of service as a Military Police Officer.

Dennis continued working in metal after his discharge from the Army and went to welding school at night. He has been in this trade all his life, by working in a sign shop as a supervisor, serviceman or as part-owner in a shop. Dennis is still working and doing the things he loves whether operating a 20-ton crane or getting 90 feet in the air to change a light bulb in a stadium using a man lift.

Dennis sadly lost his wonderful wife Kathy 12 years ago, but is surrounded by his three loving daughters and two granddaughters. He is a skilled craftsman working in wood (such as kitchen cabinetry) and metal (building a bridge for a close family member). Dennis survived a brain tumor in 1992 and battled high blood pressure, both thought to have caused his kidney failure. He has been reliant on dialysis since 2022 but continues to stay as active as he can and rides his Harley for therapy. With the gift of a new kidney, Dennis would love to do more traveling again and go deep-sea fishing. Some of his family members were tested to donate but unfortunately were declined. Will you join our mission to find a kidney for Dennis? Your support, whether through spreading the word on social media or considering becoming a donor, can make a profound impact on his life!

Dennis has enlisted the help of a Veteran's organization called DOVE Transplant which is helping in his outreach to find his life-saving kidney donor. DOVE will assist all prospective donors throughout the process and ensure they do not incur any out-of-pocket expenses during the evaluation or surgery.

A healthy person can live a normal life with one kidney and save this Veteran's life! Please click on the link below if you would like to learn more OR call (551) 233-1611.
