Dennis Copeland Overton

He was a well-known and respected heavy equipment mechanic who took great pride in his work. Dennis enjoyed fishing, old cars, and watching football (and talking football smack with his cousin Joe!). He was particularly fond of coffee (one cream and one sugar!), and his Winston cigarettes.

He leaves behind his wife, Heidi; children: Kyle (Heather) Overton of Hartwell, GA, Caine Overton of Brooksville, FL, Clayton Overton of Elberton, GA, Amzie Overton of Elberton, GA, Erin Shaw of Elberton, GA, and Lindsey Rice of Elberton, GA; sister, Cindy Corley of Salisbury, NC; and four grandchildren: Calvin Overton, Ava Mahaffey, Jackson Mahaffey, and Ryder Mahaffey.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his siblings: Dallas Overton, Jr. and LaDonna Dixon.
