Patrick Bryant Dennis, 93, of Concord went to be with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, January 17, 2024. He was the devoted husband of the late Peggy Shaw Dennis.
He is survived by his daughter, Dianne Moody and husband, David; grandson, Bryan Moody and wife, Angel; granddaughter-in-law, Leslie Dorr; great-grandchildren, Embri, Elaina, Bryson, and Declan Moody, and Cameron Mitchell; sister, Marie Oates; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Pat was born in Durham, NC, on September 10, 1930, and was a son of the late John S. Dennis Sr. and Minnie High Dennis. He was a retired Chief Warrant Officer for the North Carolina Army National Guard. Pat enjoyed working in his yard, daily walks, and the 30 years he and his wife volunteered with Duke University football and basketball concessions activities. He was active in church and Bible study at The Gospel Center and Northgate Chapel both in Durham, NC.
He considered as his greatest achievements in life his wonderful marriage to Peggy, his daughter, Dianne, accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, spending time with his two grandsons that he had the privilege of baptizing upon their profession of faith to Lord Jesus Christ and officiating both of their weddings. And of course, his great-grandchildren that brought him great joy in his later years in life.
In addition to his wife and parents he was preceded in death by his grandson, Patrick David Moody and siblings, John, Luke, Doc, Julian, and Lillie Mae.
The family would like to pay homage and give gratitude to a special caregiver, Christy Davis, who selflessly served him daily and loved him so well and to Centra Health Hospice and their medical staff.
The family will welcome friends at his residence in Concord, VA on Sunday, January 21 from 1:30 -4:30.
A funeral service will be held at Noon, on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, Hudson Funeral Home, 211 S. Miami Blvd., Durham, NC with visitation one hour prior to the funeral service.
In lieu of flowers, for those wishing to make donations, please consider donating a tree to the family. It will be planted on family land and enjoyed seasonally by them, as he always enjoyed God’s creation and working with his hands in his yard. seedsoflife.com
