Denny was born Dec. 23, 1986, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the son of Dennis Vorba and Mary (Williams) Peterson. While attending Jefferson High School, he was a two-time state wrestling qualifier and baseball letterman before he graduated in 2005. Denny worked for Fareway while in high school and then for Cooper Tire. After high school, he mastered the welding trade and became a senior welder at Runde Machine for the past eight years. Denny was an exceptional father who spent his time doing all the things he loved with his boys. He loved them unconditionally and was so proud to be their father. Denny was an avid softball player. He played for many teams, including CR Balls, Squad City and most recently, Deep 3. He enjoyed the outdoors and loved fishing, boating, tubing and hunting. Denny was also a Denver Broncos fan.
