Dennis Ray Lanham, 66, of Alvin passed away on Tuesday, June 21, 2016.  Dennis was born on October 6, 1949 in Houston.  Along with his family, he co-owned Lanham Truck Parts where he enjoyed working for many years.  He loved playing the guitar, racing and building cars, riding motorcycles, hunting and reading.  After retiring from San Jacinto High Rollers, he was able to enjoy his grandchildren who gave him so much fulfillment and happiness.  ‘Be cool man’, ‘If you’re good to people, they’ll be good to you’ or ‘All I need is time, patience, and money’ was heard from him often.  These little sayings that he would share will be remembered always.
