Obituary & Service Info

Dennis David Polite, was born on December 24, 1976 in Gaithersburg, MD to Joan and Dennis T. Polite. He was known by several names. In his youngerdays, he was known as “Davy”, to some he was known as “Heavy”, to others he was known as “Flub”, and to his dearly departed grandfather David Spann,along with a host of other family members, he was simply known as “Wham”

As a child, Dennis was compassionate, caring, and full of Life, laughter, and fun. He never met a stranger, and he was always the life of the party. Dennis always had a witty sense of humor and a charm about himself that hardly anyone who knew him could resist. He had a way of making you believe that whatever he was saying was “true” even when you knew in your head that it just wasn't possible. He was cool like that. 
 
He attended school at Savannah High, where there he participated in the band as a drummer. In addition to the playing the drums, he had a beautiful voice and he played a mean saxophone.  A few years later he married Trisha McGill and became a father to four beautiful children to whom he loved more than anything.
 
Later in life Dennis became a mason, he took pride in being a part of the brotherhood and was ecstatic about being a part of such a profound organization. He worked for several years as the manager of operations at R.S.T Care Service, and later as a painter at Thunderbolt Marina. Shortly after his time at R.S.T Care Service, his life shifted in a different direction and he and Trisha decided to part ways. He later met Mungera Cash and welcomed her and her beautiful daughter Azora into his life. He proposed marriage to Mungera and was anticipating spending the rest of his life with her.
 
Dennis was called home suddenly on February 16, 2015 at St. Joseph/Candler Hospital of Savannah, GA.
