Edgar Dennis Hollerud, age 84, of Hudson, passed away on Sunday, July 24, 2011. He was born the only son of Edgar O. and Camilla (Nelson) Hollerud on March 31, 1927 in Minneapolis. Dennis grew up on the family farm in rural Glenwood City, Wisconsin and he attended Glenwood City High School. On August 29, 1953 Dennis was united in marriage to Doris C. Anderson at the Mission Covenant Church in Hudson. They were blessed with five children: Kay, Susan, Barbara, James and Janice.
In his 20’s, Dennis sang gospel music with Christ Crusaders Quartet. He always loved music and singing. Dennis worked as a truck driver for Crescent Creamery for 25 years.
