He was born in 1775. After a long military career, mostly under Wellington and all over the world, he commanded a brigade of Picton's division at Quatre-Bras and at Waterloo where he was wounded and this was his last foreign service.

He was much honoured in Portugal, Austria and Russia and was given a KCB and received the thanks of Parliament 5 times for his military service. He was possibly the most decorated General after Wellington himself.

He died in London in 1823 but is buried at St Canice Cathedral in Kilkenny, Ireland where his father had been Dean.

Two of Sir Denis' first cousins, Richard and Percy Pack, served as medical staff at Waterloo and a more distant cousin, Robert Christopher Pack was killed there. At least 4 members of this one family.
