WYOMING, Laramie County CD – Dennis Hemmer, 69, died June 1 in Aurora, Colorado. He earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Montana in Wildlife Biology and a Master’s in Resource Conservation.

His long career took him from being a BLM caretaker of an official ghost town one winter to becoming Commissioner of State Lands for the State of Montana. In 1989 he and his family moved to Cheyenne, where he served as Director of Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality until 2003. Then, from 2004 until he retired in 2014, Dennis was the tree specialist for the Laramie County Conservation District.
