On his show “Ridiculousness,” Rob’s parents, Gene and Paty, appeared several times. Although Denise hasn’t been a part of it, the sibling duo have a strong connection. 

From sharing appreciation posts on birthdays to calling her one of the best real estate agents, Rob is one proud younger brother. 

The Ohio native, Rob, has followed a similar path to legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk, with both of them creating a large fanbase in skateboarding and later shifting towards business.

Before working as a real estate agent for Key Realty, Denise worked as an operations manager for Dermpath Lab of Central States.

Once a believer that their son had taken the wrong career path, Paty was highly concerned about her son’s future.

Dyrdek didn’t come from an athletic or celebrity background. So, when Rob decided to drop out of high school, it was a smack to his parents’ faces.

But nowadays, they certainly don’t mind being called Rob Dyrdek’s parents.

Rob Dyrdek’s father, Gene Dyrdek, 83, celebrates his birthday every year on August 17.

A former salesman, Gene Dyrdek, expected his son to take up a white-collar job. But Rob had different intentions.

During the Vietnam War, Gene, full name Eugue R. Dyrdek, served as an air force pilot for the United States.

The old man’s passion for golf is evident in the photos shared by him and his son. He even spent his 80th birthday playing golf with his friends.

Gene has gone through multiple health scares in recent years. In 2015, he suffered a heart attack and had to put on two stents.

A few months later, he was diagnosed with lung cancer, but thankfully he survived and won all his battles.

A proud mother of two, Paty has gained a massive following of 117k on Instagram.
