Dennis Fancher, 73, of Ocean Isle Beach was called to his eternal home Sunday, Feb. 25, 2018, at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington surrounded by family and friends.
Dennis is survived by his grade school sweetheart and wife of 54 years, Carol Fancher; three daughters, Shelly (Michael) Kress, Kristen (Blane) Moon and Kimberly (John) Lord; five grandchildren, Karin Lord, Taylor Lord, Lindsay Moon, Zachary Lord and Aniston Moon; three grandchildren in love, Knox, Alexander and Nellie Harris; his mother, Miriam Fancher; his brother, Ronald (JoAnn) Fancher; and his sister, Renee (Richard) Fletcher. He is preceded in death by his father, Arthur Fancher.
Dennis attended Vestal High School and was a graduate of Augusta Military Academy in Virginia, class of 1963. He also attended Alfred Technical College for HVAC and refrigeration and was a member of the Free and Accepted Masons. As a New York transplant, Dennis served his community in many capacities as a volunteer firefighter for the Ocean Isle Beach Fire Department, working with the Ocean Isle Beach Sea Turtle Protection Organization and as the community watch coordinator for his street, and was always willing to help anyone in need. Semi-retired, Dennis obtained his real estate license and worked closely with his friend and mentor on the Sarah Harris team, as well as having served as the vice president of Tri-County Mechanical. While his birth name was Dennis, to his family, friends and community he was called Pop-Pop and was loved by all who knew him. He had a passion for history and recently shared his love by taking his grandchildren on a heritage trek to see their family roots in Pennsylvania and New York. When he wasn't working, Pop-Pop loved to spend to spend time fishing, clamming or hunting, always with family.
There will be a celebration of life Saturday, May 5, at Ocean Isle Beach.
