Biography

Early Years

Dennis Lee Siluk, born on October 7, 1947, in Saint Paul, Minnesota, United States of America. His father was of Irish origins and his mother of Russian and Polish stock. Dennis grew up under the protection of his mother ((Elsie T. Siluk)(1920-2003)) and his grandfather ((Anton Siluk)(1891-1974)), of Russian birth who came to America in 1916, participated in the First World War (1918), in which he had to return to Europe for a year, then married Ella of Polish stock and settled in St. Paul. Dennis has one brother, Mike Siluk (October 8, 1945).

Since Dennis was a child he enjoyed poetry, and at the age of twelve wrote his first poem ‘Who,’ thereafter, a number of his poetry was published in his high school newspaper, while in journalism class, at Washington High School, in St. Paul, Minnesota (‘Beyond Time,’ and ‘Typing,’). Some of these early poems can be found in his first book, “The Other Door” (1981, now a classic and much sought after book). In 1965, at the age of 16-years old, he had won second place in the city of St. Paul, art competition (sponsored by the: Jaycees), at Washington High School. During this period between the ages of twelve and fourteen years old, he worked as a shoeshine boy, until he got his first real job at the World Theater, as an usher, and candy counter distributor.

At the age of twenty Dennis had already become a somewhat, seasoned traveler; he had traveled with an assortment of friends across the country, staying in Omaha, Nebraska, working across the river. Also he had traveled to Seattle Washington, living there in the Ballard District, working for a window frame company. Things did not work out for him, with his friends so he returned after a short visit, perhaps a month or so.

Dennis’ next trip was his first long trip in that he’d stay for a year; in 1968 he went to San Francisco where he learned Karate (Go Jo Rue) from the renowned Gosei Yamaguchi who became his protector also, during his stay in San Francisco and during this year he met on a personal level, Gogan, Gosei’s father known as, “The Cat,” here he studied and taught children the art of Karate, and was in one tournament.

At the age of twenty-two Dennis enter into the United States Army (participating in the Vietnam War in 1971, and receiving three medals of Accommodation, for his outstanding service, during these years, he became a Staff Sergeant (eight plus, years Active, and three years Inactive Reserve)). During his tours of duty, his permanence in the Army assisted him in the financial burden for paying his college education, he attended the University of Maryland (1974-76) receiving his first degree in Behavioral Science; during this time he also attended Central Texas College (where he took only two courses).

Thereafter, in Alabama, he continued his education at Troy State University, receiving his second degree, in Psychology and Literature. Thereafter, he attended the University of Minnesota (for Psychology, and Counseling), and Liberty University (doing studies in Theology), mostly graduate and post graduate work.

His first book, was published in 1981, his second in 1982 (during this time his poetry was being published by a Minneapolis Newspaper, along with some of his short stories in selected books by independent publishers). Thus, he stopped his professional career in June of 2001 because of an impending illness, and did just writing as he could, taking up much of his old unfinished manuscripts trying to smooth them out, along with his poetry.
