Dennis Wininger – San Francisco, CA

Dennis is a telecommunications sales and marketing professional who took part in Proper Walk 2006. Dennis became part of the walks when Michael Farley surprised him at his 50th birthday gala. During a euphoric moment, Dennis told Michael if he ever did another Proper Walk, he would go. The rest is history. Michael and Dennis were roommates at Wayne State College in Wayne, NE. Dennis visited Michael in Kenya in 1979 where David Brooks guided them on one of the most memorable safaris of all safaris. They climbed Mount Kenya and camped near the Masai Mara with lions roaring near their tents. Close to this camp is where the famous “Moon over Mara” photo was taken.

Dennis recently celebrated his 21st anniversary to his lovely wife Allyson Clark and they have a 13-year-old son named Clark and a labradoodle puppy named Ziggy.
