James Noland Dennis, son of Nola S. Dennis and the late James Dennis, Jr., was born on November 22, 1962 in Richmond, Virginia. He transitioned from labor to reward on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital in Onancock, Virginia.

James was educated in the public schools of Accomack County and was a 1981 graduate of Central High School. After high school, he entered the United States Army and was honorably discharged in 1986. Following in his father’s footsteps, James entered the trucking field. He became the owner and operator of J & N Transportation and Farms. He dedicated his life to this business until November 2018, when he retired.

James loved to pick up new hobbies. He loved to grill and was a self-proclaimed “Grill Master.” He also enjoyed fishing, golfing, playing the guitar, playing chess, shooting pool, and riding his motorcycle. His greatest love, however, was truly trucking. James was a member of the Unionville Masonic Lodge #45 in Pocomoke, Maryland.

In 2012, James entered into holy matrimony with Kendall Harmon Dennis. They shared twenty-two years together.

James leaves to cherish his memory: his wife, Kendall Dennis; mother, Nola Dennis; seven children, Javan (Laron) Winfrey, Courtney (Captain William) Hardison, James N. Dennis, Jr., JaMiaya Dennis, Reneka Harmon, Tadell Harmon, and Teaira Harmon; nine grandchildren, Jabre, Layla, King, Karter, Britayn, Isaiah, Lakayla, Nylah, and Zoë; one godson, Jordan Snead; and a host of other relatives and friends.

I would like to express my sympathy and condolences at this time. Also, at Rev. 21;3,4, it tells us that sickness and death will be done away with forever and Isaiah 25:8, it tells us that God will swallow up death forever and he will wipe away the tears from all faces. I hope you find comfort in these words during your loss.
