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.

I am sorry to hear of your passing my friend. I sit here and I remember how we meet and the funny thing that happen. How you tried to help me learn the lesson of life that I missed out on. Dennis for the short time that I knew you , the thoughts time were aventful. Considering all the place I had been and really felt I had seen everything but, when I meet you Dennis I do believe you show me thing I had never seen before, like do you remember when they came down the driveway in full gear, lol. Or when you leant me that piece of bling that you had So I could impress my date., that was amazing and the fact that you showed me such great trust. My friend my life was better because you were in it and I thank you for that. My friend you will be missed but I believe that those that go first pave the road for us to follow and not if we meet again but, when, we will have good times and maybe I can get you too teach me to dance. Good bye my friend,until tomorrow.
