WARRIOR — The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency is investigating a fatal accident involving a motorcycle near Warrior.
Robert Lynn Dennis, 34, of Hayden, was killed when the 2008 Harley Davidson he was operating struck a tree that had fallen across Arkadelphia Road. Dennis was pronounced dead at the scene, five miles northwest of Warrior. State Troopers are investigating the crash.
Rita Thomas, who knew Dennis, said she remembers Dennis and his family being supportive when she lost her son in an accident in 2016.
“He reminded me of my son, always teasing me about all the new technology that I didn’t know about,” said Thomas. “I’ll never forget that little grin. Please pray for his heart-broken family as they have a long and painful road ahead. Sadly, I know all too well.”
Dennis, who is the owner of Robert Dennis Auto Sales, is survived by his wife, Lauren and their 4-year-old daughter, Lana Leigh.
Family announced his visitation will be Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019, from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at The New Gardendale Funeral Home. The funeral service will be Monday, Sept. 23, at 2 p.m. in the chapel of the funeral home, with burial to follow at Mount Zion Cemetery.
