Chad Wilson Dennis

Chad Wilson Dennis, 48, of Albemarle passed away Sunday, May 24, 2020 in Atrium Health Cabarrus, Concord.  A private graveside service will be held at Salem United Methodist Church with Rev. David Talbert officiating.

Born January 16, 1972 in Albemarle, he was the son of Linda Eudy Johnson and husband Rick of Albemarle and the late Terry Dennis.  He was a graduate of Albemarle High School where he was active in sports and was quite the athlete.  He enjoyed fishing with his Pa, watching Carolina basketball games, tinkering with his tractor and hanging out with his Granny. He was a member of Paul’s Crossing Baptist Church and was a Maintenance Supervisor with the NC Dept. of Transportation.

In addition to his mother and step father Linda and Rick Johnson, he is also survived by a brother Trent Dennis of Albemarle, Aunt and Uncle Denise and Sherrill Smith of Albemarle, step-siblings Kristi Treptow, Blair Johnson, and Andy Johnson and best friend Marc Lefler. 

Due to Chad’s selfless act of organ donation, eight potential people will be given a chance of hope and a better life. 

Memorials may be made to the Salem United Methodist Church New Building Fund, 20987 NC-73, Albemarle, NC 28001.

Stanly overwhelmingly met or exceeded our family’s expectations. Family and friends both expressed how thoughtful, caring and professional they were. We’re glad you’re in Locust!


We never felt hurried or rushed in any way even though they had other funerals that day.  Everyone at Stanly Funeral Home made us feel like we were family and did everything they could for us in this most trying time in our lives.


Everyone went out of their way to make sure that every detail was good with me.  Their kindness, patience and love they show is superior.  Stephen Aldridge and his ENTIRE staff are the best.


The whole staff was wonderful but Stephen Aldridge was excellent, even sending us a note one month later.
