Dee was a member of the UAW and retired from Ford Motor Company and GM, but the job he loved most was the 54 years he served his God as a minister of the gospel. He pastored three churches over the years; New Home Free Will Baptist in Central, Friendship Free Will Baptist in Sheffield, and Royal Avenue Free Will Baptist in Florence; he loved leading others to Christ. Dee’s second love was his family. He was always a hard worker and a good provider. Dee loved his wife of 61 years with all his heart. She was the love of his life. He loved his six kids and all his grandkids so much. He had many interest and hobbies but the biggest was music. He loved to play music and sing and he did that whenever he could and his favorite song was Beulah Land and now he is there. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and a friend who will be sorely missed.
Pallbearers will be grandsons.
A special thanks for all the ones that have helped with Dee and family during this time.
