at Asbury UMC, including Finance Chairman and Mission Director, during which
he led multiple mission trips. Dennis possessed a true servant’s heart.
Dennis loved his family— especially his wife, Katherine Tomlinson Bouck. Their
marriage was one of love and devotion. Dennis enjoyed traveling the world with
her, as well his children and grandchildren. In the summers, you could find them
all on Black Bayou Reservoir, making memories.

family. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Terry James Bouck
(Brenda Wade Bouck). He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Kathy; son
