Dennis Alter

Dennis Alter 4/16/1951 - 3/18/2013 In the early hours of March 18, Dennis lost his 15 year-long battle with multiple sclerosis. But even Superman has his kryptonite. Loving husband to Alyce, father to Grant and Blake, and grandfather to Jackson. Dennis had many interests and passions, but nothing was more important than family and his business. He loved poker, cooking, dancing with his beloved wife, eating, and jokes. As a child, he wanted to be Superman. And in that fashion, he leaves behind a legacy of strength, love, and innate goodness. He is already missed. Preceded in death by mother Shirley Alter, survived by father Nelson Alter, Brothers Keith and Brian and their families and sister Wendy. A memorial service will be held at the home of Nelson Alter, 1380 Thomas Road, in Beaumont, at 6PM on Saturday, March 23rd. In lieu of flowers, memorial denotations may be made to: National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Gateway Multiple Sclerosis Chapter, 1867 Lackland Hill Park Way, St. Louis, MO 63146 or United Hebrew Congregation, 13788 Conway Rd., St. Louis MO 63141, Attn: Helen C.
