Dennis Harrelson grew up in Latta and Dillion, SC with a very humble beginning. Where his family lacked financial means, they had love and their belief in God that made such a strong bond. He grew up next to his grandmother, Flora Rich, who meant the world to him throughout his life. He moved to Florence, SC prior to High School. He graduated from West Florence High School and then attended Francis Marion University in Florence, SC. Most of his career he worked in sales, acquired real estate for rental property, and owned multiple businesses. He vowed to make the most of his career to be able to provide a great life for himself and his children. He achieved great success in his life despite the adversity and challenges that came his way. In the last 10 years, he worked as a consultant for America's Home Place. He had a great passion for helping make others dreams come true by buying their homes through America's Home Place. The company and the work brought great meaning and joy to him. Throughout the years, he was a member of civil organizations such as Lions and Rotary Club. Also, he donated to numerous charities throughout the years. This was a strong belief of his that it was his duty to give back to those less fortunate. Throughout his formative years and adult life he was very involved in the Florence Baptist Temple. His favorite pass time was reading, listening to music, sitting on a dock watching the waves from the ocean, riding his golf cart, watching the birds outside his window and being with family.
