Mr. Dennis was born in Johnsonville on August 19, 1927, a son of the late George W. and Jessie Powell Dennis. Malvin retired from W. Lee Flowers as Floor Supervisor. He was a member of Lake City Pentecostal Holiness Church, where he formerly served as Sunday School Superintendent, teacher of the Mae Wall Sunday School Class for over 35 years, Deacon for over 20 years and Choir member. He was a wonderful husband who was blessed to share 50 years of marriage with his wife he loved dearly. He loved his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and has left a Christian heritage to each of them. He loved his church and his church family, but most of all, he loved his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. When he accepted Christ as his Savior, he began to live daily with trust and faith in Christ and left an example for those coming after him to follow. He will be missed greatly by all those who knew and loved him.

Mr. Dennis was preceded in death by his wife Sadie Dennis and brothers, J.C. and Bubba Dennis and a sister, Linda Dennis.
