Hi I'm Denny

Grew up in So. Cal. Lived here all my life except for 2 years in The British Mission.

About Me

I am a Husband (married to my high school Sweetheart Carol Diane Hodge), Father of 4, Grandfather of 9, Great-Grandfather of 2. Raised our 4 children in Agoura HIlls, CA and lived there for 30+ years. Worked in retail when first married, then banking. For the past 41 years I have been a State Farm Insurance Agent/Broker. Still doing that and also own and run a property management company managing community interest developments in California. We love to fish, ski, and backpack the Eastern Sierras. Climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro at age 64. Have refereed high school and college basketball for 30+ years.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church when I was a senior in high school. I had been around members from the time I was 5 years old and most of my friends and their families were LDS. It always seeme right and "normal" for me to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith through service to my family and others. I served a two year mission in The British Mission. I have had wonderful opportunities to teach, coach, and hopefully influence youth and teenagers in many calling I have received. We have been blessed to serve as a Bishop and many councils in the Church. Currently, as the Director of Public Affairs locally , I interface with political and other community leaders to promote and organize Church participation in community events.
