He was born in Decatur, Alabama on October 13, 1957 to Bill and Bettye Dennis. He graduated from Decatur High School in 1976 and followed his dream to play football for Auburn University. While his knee injuries interrupted his football career, his love for Auburn University never wavered. He graduated in 1980 with a BS in Industrial Management. He lived and worked in business in the Orlando area. He was a proud and loving father to his three daughters.
Richard is survived by his daughters Alexandra Elizabeth, Faith Elizabeth, and Jordan Ann; his parents William Lee "Bill" Dennis Sr and Bettye Brackeen Dennis of Decatur; his brother William "Lee" (Leona) Dennis Jr. and sister Anna Dennis (Greg) Solomon; the mother of their children Liz Lange Dennis; cousins Jaye Dennis and Leigh Dennis (Chip) Manning; nephews Clark Solomon and Will Dennis; nieces Marianna Dennis (Bill) Frankwitt and Leigh Anna Solomon; and great-nephew Haven Frankwitt.
Pallbearers will include Clark Solomon and Will Dennis, and friends Mark Daily, Bobby Demoss, Mike Dishman, Scott Hagood, Bob Hamilton, and Ronnie Hughes.
While our hearts are broken by our earthly loss, we rejoice in our Lord who comforts us in our time of pain while welcoming Dick into His kingdom.
