Family-Placed Death Notice

DENNIS, Roy ROY DENNIS Roy was born and raised in Terre Haute, Indiana to Jay and Peggy Dennis. He was the 2nd of 3 sons between his brothers, Gary and Bill. After graduating from Garfield High School in Terre Haute, he moved to Florida to work and seek a career. Roy began work for Winn-Dixie in Ft. Lauderdale and worked his way through the ranks to become a valued employee up to Store Management and later the manager of all Winn-Dixie affiliates, City Market, in The Bahamas. During this time, he married the love of his life, Nancy McAllister Dennis, in 1992 and they had their two children, Lydia and Parker before moving to Atlanta in 1996. Here, Roy continued with Winn-Dixie in the corporate staff until he took early retirement and became a Real estate broker with Keller Williams.

His funeral Mass will be held at St. Jude the Apostle Catholic Church on July 12, 2011 @ 1 p.m. Arrangements by SouthCare Cremation Society and Memorial Centers in Alpharetta. (678) 735-5500.
