Denzil (Denny) Hubbard Hillebrant, 83, passed away on Thurs. May 30, 2019. Denny was born September 8, 1935 in Pocatello, Idaho and was raised by his mother Mildred Julia Hubbard Hillebrant and father Tidal Oliver Hillebrant. He grew up in downtown Pocatello on Arthur Street, attending local schools.
In 1954 he married Merrilyn Dawn Briscoe and left to serve in the U. S. Army. After an honorable discharge he returned home to work and raise a family of six children. Denny and Merrilyn later divorced.

He was a friendly and happy man who loved his children and valued friendships. He loved Pocatello and was involved with various service organizations, holding many leadership positions, always attending and supporting meetings and activities. He was generous and kind, giving of his time and resources to many in need through the years.
