January 17, 1930 - February 7, 2018
Albert Marion Dennis, formerly of Terrell, passed away into the presence of his Lord on the afternoon of Feb. 7, 2018. He was reunited in Heaven by his beloved wife, Julia, who preceded him in death on Dec. 29, 2014. His family finds peace that, in their lives on earth together, his precious Judy made sure that all was taken care of for Albert and she no doubt had their new heavenly home perfectly arranged for when he arrived. Albert, affectionately known as Tootsie, was born to Willie and Lillie Mae Dennis on January 17, 1930 in Terrell, Texas where he grew up in and lived almost all of his 88 years. He worked for the City of Dallas at Stevens Park Golf Course and his easy smile and gregarious personality made each and every co-worker, colleague and player an instant friend. Albert was a man of his word as well as a man of constant activity, never slowing down. He believed that every day was a new chance to show love to his family and enjoy the outdoors when he went hunting and fishing. Albert also loved to grow things and he had a passion for gardening with both flowers and vegetables. He was especially renowned for his amazing tomato plants and he gladly shared his yearly harvests with friends and family. A devoted husband, loving father, cherished grandfather, brother and uncle, Albert will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Those that went on to Heaven before Albert were: his wife, Julia also known as Judy; his parents, and brothers: Glen, Leon, Joe and Larry Dennis. Albert leaves to cherish his memory his daughter, Martha Smith and husband, Don; grandchildren: Michelle Roberts and husband Chad, Julie Rains and husband Russell; great grandchildren: Abbey and Ryan Roberts; sister Vera McManus; brothers: James Dennis, Mike Dennis, and Billy Dennis and wife, Sue, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Funeral service will be at 11:00am, Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018 at Max Slayton Funeral Chapel with interment to follow at Campground Cemetery. The family will receive friends 5-7pm, Friday, Feb. 9, 2018 at the funeral home.
