Dennis Allen Anderson, 69, of Dudley passed away at Wayne UNC hospital with his family at his side. Everyone that knew him well, knew that he was a mama’s boy and on Mother’s Day 2022, he was given the gift of reuniting with his mama. He was the son of the late Raymond Allen and Christine Coates Anderson. Dennis held many jobs throughout his life, he was a heavy equipment operator for years, and was best known as a truck driver. He was known as “Old Timer” or “O.T.” by many. When his nephews, Jonathon and Justin were young, he enjoyed taking them to Busco Beach or Buckleberry and four wheeling all weekend long. He loved to joke around with people, the only problem being, sometimes you didn’t know if he was joking or serious. He also loved to fish, drag race, and he enjoyed tinkering on things.
The family will have a graveside service on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at 5:30 p.m. in Wayne Memorial Park.
Dennis is survived by his sister, Katrina Anderson Whaley of Dudley; his nephews, Jonathon Whaley of Goldsboro and Justin Whaley and special friend, Kelsley Hokuf of Goldsboro; grandson, Dawson Eli Anderson; very special great niece, Hadley Piper; aunt and uncle, Joan and Roy Worley of Princeton; special friends, Kevin and Wendy Smith of Mt. Olive; and a host of cousins and friends.
In addition to his parents, a son, Dennis Allen Anderson Jr. preceded him in death.
