Jul 21, 2023

Dennis James Dawson, 70, of Elkins passed peacefully at home on Wednesday, July 19, 2023. Dennis was born November 26, 1952, in San Antonio, TX to Max and Wanda Dawson. Dennis was a parishioner of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Fayetteville, AR. His love and dedication to his family was unmatched. Family was the most important thing in his life. His Grandchildren will never forget the love their Pop Pop had for them. He was an avid outdoorsman and found his peace in the deer stand or with a line in the water. If you met Dennis, you were instantly his friend. One thing he loved to do was tell stories. Even if you had already heard it a million times, you would always be on the edge of your seat. He will be missed dearly by all that knew him.

Dennis is survived by his wife of 49 years Jean Dawson. Two sons; Chad J Dawson of Elkins, AR, and Shawn P Dawson and his wife Brittany of San Antonio, TX. His Grandchildren Ella Dawson and Paisley Dawson, two sisters Darla Allen of Edmond, OK and Denise Arnold of Springdale, AR, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

A visitation will be held from 5-7 PM Monday, July 24th at Beards Funeral Chapel in Fayetteville, AR. A memorial mass will be held at 10 AM Tuesday, July 25th at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Fayetteville, AR.

    Dennis was a great man. He loved tennis and he was a very God fearing man. Loved himself some Jesus. He helped the homeless provide rooms for rent and sometimes if he cooked he would offered us food and he would put little treats at our doors like fruits, cookies and other snacks treat. My prayers goes out to the family and Dennis will always be remembered and missed. 🕊️🙌🕊️
