Obituary of James Dennis Alderson

James Dennis Alderson, 78 of Summerville, SC passed May 3, 2023 at home surrounded by family.

Dennis was a devoted husband to Lisa for 20 years and a loving father to his children who live in SC, TX and VA. He was a proud Paw Paw to his grandchildren and had many friendships that spanned decades and the globe.

When asked how he wanted to be remembered, it was simple, as "The World's Greatest Salesman." Dennis traveled the world doing what he loved, achieving great success in the field of Industrial Sales. His professionalism made it an honor to work with him and he was a great friend and mentor to many.

Dennis succumbed to the effects of Parkinson's Disease; a disease for which there is no cure. His prayer was to help in the battle for understanding, advancements in treatment and ultimately a cure for this devastating disease. His brain was donated to the Carroll Campbell Neuropathology Lab & MUSC Brain Bank, where his gift will aid in the continued research and strides to find a cure for years to come.

Dennis is truly loved by many and will be greatly missed.

In place of flowers, the family would like donations made to the Carroll Campbell Neuropathology Lab - Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. Please click here for ways to contribute.
