Denny became a realtor in Lincoln and slowly bought and managed properties of his own. He also returned to Bruning for many years to help his parents with the farming operation. Denny enjoyed hunting and fishing. He also loved “mother nature,” respecting and admiring the land and all of the animals. He loved to dance, twirling his partner all around the floor! Denny had a big heart, and his humor and kindness to others was legendary. The people at Eastmont Towers were entertained by his jokes, pranks, smile and his thoughtfulness. Denny was preceded in death by his parents; aunts & uncles; and nephew Matt Karich. He is survived by his sister Dianne Karich Hite & husband Fred of Irvine, California; brother Randy Bumgarner & wife Vicki of Lincoln, Nebraska; nephews Roger Bumgarner & wife Steph and their children Will & Charlie, Lee Bumgarner & wife Whitney and their children Ben & Libby all of Lincoln, Nebraska, Eric Karich & wife Amy and their children Hayden, Avery, Ariel, Olivia, Andy Karich & wife Laura and their children Abby, Annie, and Brady, Mike Karich & wife Michelle and their children Charlie, Chloe, and Colt, Katie Karich and the late Matt Karich and their children Lilly and Bailey all of California.
