Dennis Lavon Killingsworth Passed away at his home in Gautier on Monday May 11, 2020.
Dennis was born September 4, 1958 in Pascagoula, MS to Lavon and Ora Killingsworth. If we could describe Dennis’s life in one word it would be struggle. He was born with health problems and at an early age his dad was killed in a tragic accident, thus begin the cycle of his life. With all the many challenges he faced there was always someone there to try to pick up the pieces, but yet again he struggled with allowing those, who loved him the most to help. Dennis had a soft heart and was an animal lover. Our hearts are broken, but we know his struggles are finally over.
He was preceded in death by his father Lavon Killingsworth; two sisters, Dianna and Debra Killingsworth; grandparents, Alman and Ludie Killingsworth, Robert Lee and Gladys Irene Hammons; uncles and aunts, Charles E. Killingsworth, G.C Killingsworth, Billy Ray Killingsworth, Cecil and Hilde Killingsworth and Susan Hammons.
