His brothers Harold and Lynn Bearden and sisters Sheila Welch and Gloria Damp survive him. Denny Graduated from Cartersville High School in 1965 and attended the University of Georgia before entering the United States Army.

Denny enjoyed farming, teaching, building, and genealogy. His family and grandnephews and grandnieces were the highlights of his life. To these young adults, Craeden Bearden, Peirce Bearden, Miles Bearden, Hal Bearden, Lucy Bearden, Harrison Williams, Lasseter Williams, Nick Phillips, Sam Phillips, Marcus Harrison, Taylor Harrison, Josh Harrison and Sarah Harrison, he is known as "Uncle D" the favorite uncle.
