Dennis D. Fodor

Dennis D. Fodor, 86, of Cooper passed away with his loving family by his side on Thursday, September 1, 2016, in Sulphur Springs.

Dennis was born in Budapest, Hungary, on June 22, 1930, to Maria Wismerdie and Alex Sandor Fodor. He was a Ball Room Dance Instructor. He was married to Virginia Foster, the love of his life. Dennis won many trophies for ballroom dancing competitions with many students. He had one student who was still dancing with him at competitions at the age of 103. He also enjoyed remodeling homes and was a great carpenter.

The love for his country - the United States of America - was incomparable to anywhere else. Escaping from his country of war (Hungary), he suffered through many tragedies to come to America to be free. He was a great citizen and very politically minded.

He is survived by his wife, Virginia; his two daughters: Elizabeth McDaniel of Cooper and Denise Fodor Andress of North Carolina; his grandchildren: Travis, Matt, Jake and Alex Fodor; and, his great-grandchildren: Meghan S. DeCrocco, Cody McDaniel, Bella McDaniel, Alex and Amanda Fodor.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Maria and Alex and his siblings: Andresh, Marisha, Zolton and Iannal Fodor all of Hungary.
