Dennis loved the Lord and his family and was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. Dennis enjoyed bowling, fishing and hunting. In his later years Dennis enjoyed just being outdoors in the woods in God’s wonderful world of nature. He was in awe of the beauty of the animals and nature around him as he chose not to hunt just to sit and enjoy. One of the most important dates in Dennis’ life was September 2, 1978 when he married the love of his life, Dianne Brown. Dennis provided for his family as an auto mechanic in Burgaw, NC for 44 years.
