William Dennis Trott Jr.
William Dennis Trott Jr. passed peacefully away Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2016. The family will be holding a private burial and thanks everyone for their thoughts, prayers and support. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully asks that donations be made in his memory to Texas Christian University as follows, Office of Donor Relations, TCU Box 297045, Fort Worth, Texas, 76129. Dennis, as he was well-known by all, was born in Lubbock in 1942 and became a lifelong resident of Fort Worth shortly thereafter. He attended Monnig Middle School, Arlington Heights High School and was a very proud 1969 graduate of Texas Christian University's School of Journalism. Anyone who knew or had the pleasure of meeting him would quickly realize his unforgiving TCU pride during an otherwise unrelated conversation. He indeed had an uncanny ability to tie the Horned Frogs into almost any subject he might be discussing. Those who knew him also knew well his love for the music of the late 1950s. Dennis was an avid outdoorsman and he truly loved and appreciated both hunting and fishing, especially at Caddo Lake in East Texas. He was also an avid athlete with both golf and tennis being his favorite sports. Dennis was involved in multiple businesses during his 74 years, including wholesale, retail, oil and gas, and several noteworthy entrepreneurial projects, in addition to his service in the United States Air Force Reserves and membership in the Kappa Sigma fraternity. The family would also like to expressly thank Dr. Quang Le, Gentiva Hospice and the staff at Kindred Transitional Care at Ridgmar for all of their consistent and compassionate care. He was preceded in death by his mother and stepfather, Geraldine S. Harris and Charles L. Harris; father, William D. Trott Sr.; and grandson, Harrison L. Trott. Survivors: Sons, Ryan C. Trott and Joel M. Trott; daughters-in-law, Amy H. Trott and Kimberly A. Trott; grandchildren, Braden H. Trott and Marissa J. Trott; aunt, Sue Montgomery; cousins, Kay Tiblets, Ray King, Monte Montgomery and Vicki Montgomery; brother, Ken; and many extended family, friends, caregivers and acquaintances made throughout his lifetime.
