Dennis attended Hope Haven for 52 years starting at age 4.  He was an employee of University of Georgia Bolton Dining Hall for 6 years.  

Dennis exuded an affectionate and welcoming personality. His memorable tagline when introducing himself “Hey, my friend. My name is Dennis Gilbert Wray”, will resonate in our hearts forever. Dennis enjoyed bowling, swimming, The University of Georgia Bulldogs, and dancing (especially to Michael Jackson).

He leaves to cherish and rejoice in his memory two aunts, Hattie Ann E. (Charlie) Moon, Peggy L. Huff; uncle, James (Krystal) Elder, Jr., all of Athens; and a host of relatives and friends.
