That depends on what you mean by "dinosaur."
If you're talking about the animals referred to as dinosaurs in popular culture-- i.e. animals like you might see in Jurassic Park-- then no. Those animals never coexisted with mankind.
If you're asking about organisms which are cladistically defined as dinosaurs, then yes. Class Aves, more commonly known as birds, consists of all extant members of the Averostra, which using the Bible's "begat" method, are dinosaurs thusly:
The Dinosauria begat the Saurischia, which begat the Eusaurischia, which begat the Theropoda, which begat the Neotheropoda, which begat the Averostra, which begat the Tetanurae, which begat the Avetheropoda, which begat the Coelurosauria, which begat the Tyrannoraptora, which begat the Maniraptoromorpha, including the Neocoelurosauria, which begat the Maniraptiformes, which begat the Maniraptora, which begat the Pennaraptora, which begat the Paraves, which begat the Eumaniraptora, which begat the Averaptora, which begat class Aves.
God, that was boring to type out... but in short, cladistically speaking, "once a thing, always a thing," so anything that was once a type of dinosaur will always be a type of dinosaur.
Considering the cladogram for birds traces its way straight back to Dinosauria, that would make them proper dinosaurs.
So no to Jurassic Park dinosaurs, but yes to the modern, feathery ones we don't tend to think of as dinosaurs, even though that's what they are.

Dinosaurs and quite a few other species were wiped out by the Chicxulub impact, which was 64.95 million years ago. At the time not even the earliest primates existed. Even speaking generously about how wen define human no humans more than 200,000 years ago, so they missed the dinos by 64.75 million years.

No at least 63 million years apart.

Not for the most part, however, alligators and crocodiles and komodo dragons are the remnants of the dinosaurs and we have coexisted with them.

No. Not by about 70,000,000 years.
