Dennis Thomas Wall

Dennis Thomas Wall, 73, peacefully passed away on January 6, 2024. 

Dennis was born in Camden, New Jersey to Roseanna and James Wall. As a child, Dennis was known for being a prankster who reveled in making people laugh. His grand and bold personality had a way of making people feel special whenever in his presence. He truly never knew a stranger. As a testament to his character, Dennis valued the friendships he made in his earlier years. These friendships would continue into the later years in his life. One of the most special friendships made in high school was to his sweetheart, Beverly. Dennis knew on the night of senior prom; he would marry his beautiful date. In 1972, at the young ages of 20 and 21, Beverly and Dennis began their lives together as husband and wife in their home state of New Jersey. 

Dennis was an incredibly diligent worker and dedicated to being the best provider for his family. He worked most of his life in the printing industry. Because of his dedication and hard work, Dennis became an Executive with R.R. Donnelley, a Chicago-based printing company. Dennis and the family took each step together, moving from state to state forging an unbreakable family unit called, The Four Walls. Lifelong friendships were made at each stop along the way. New chapters in life were made, but no matter how busy life was, Dennis always made time for family and friends. 

Retirement came early for Dennis at age 57. He took this opportunity to live out his dream of living by the beach with his girls, Beverly, and Maggie (his Cairn Terrier). Dennis and Beverly sold their house in Chicago, and moved to Seabrook Island, SC. It was at Seabrook where Dennis began enjoying new hobbies such as gardening, woodworking, and traveling the world with Beverly. His loving companion, Maggie, was always by his side on those sunset walks and afternoon naps on the porch. 

Complete retirement was not for Dennis. He wanted to be able to continue to do what he does best, which is to make people laugh, and so he worked part-time at Ace Hardware. He loved to meet people from all walks of life and wouldn’t shy away from a good ole’ chat up at the hardware store.  

Dennis had many roles in his life; a devoted husband, a dad or Baba to his daughters, a dependable friend, but the most precious role Dennis enjoyed is that of being a Pop-Pop to his two grandsons. Dennis was a loving, supportive and caring Pop-Pop who did whatever he could to be there for his grandsons. 

All who were fortunate enough to know Dennis will live on with treasured memories of him in their hearts. He would not want those who loved and cared for him to be broken with sadness, but to carry on his love of life with laughter and joy. 

Dennis is survived by the love of his life, Beverly, with whom he was devotedly married to for over 51 years; by his two daughters, Lisa and Linda, along with their spouses David and Travis; by his two very loved grandsons Alex and Vincent; and by his brothers and sister; Jake, Stephen and Rosemarie. 

A memorial mass will be held at 11:00 am, on Saturday, January 13, 2024,  at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church, 3871 Betsy Kerrison Parkway. An inurnment ceremony will immediately follow the service. 

To honor Dennis’ love for animals, donations to the Charleston Animal Society (charlestonanimalsociety.org) are requested in lieu of flowers.
