Dennis Martin Posey 68, of Tucson, Arizona, passed away with his family by his side on June 12, 2014 from an ongoing illness. He was born to Norene and Leaden Posey of Animas, New Mexico where they lived for nine years and then moved to Alamogordo, New Mexico. Dennis graduated from Alamogordo High School in 1963 and graduated from New Mexico State University in 1967. Like many in his family, Dennis was a 35-year career railroader. Outside of work, he enjoyed doing home improvement projects, traveling, and spending time with family and pets. He also had a passion for growing and tending to many types of plants. As an avid morning person he enjoyed many Arizona sunrises over hot cups of coffee. Having spent over 40 years in Tucson, he especially loved the summer monsoons. His life would seem too short to many, but those he touched understood that the quality of life far exceeds the quantity. His loving wife of 20 years, Lu Ann, survives him along with his two sons, Justin and Brandon; daughters-in-law, Jennie and Amanda; brother, Hyram; sister-in-law, Lori and twin sister, Dena. His parents and grandparents preceded him in death. A Visitation will be held at 10:00 a.m. with the Memorial Service following at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 17, 2014 at EAST LAWN PALMS MORTUARY, 5801 E. Grant Road, Tucson, Arizona. The family requests that any memorials be made to the Desert Hope Lutheran Church Building Fund or the American Brain Tumor Association.
