On May 30, 2019, Dennis Michael Ebersole, age 59, passed away in his home in Kure Beach, just five months following a diagnosis of esophageal cancer. Dennis moved from California to Pleasure Island with his family in 1993. They ventured into the hospitality business with the purchase of The Palm Air Cottages in Kure Beach. Dennis served as a firefighter/captain for the Kure Beach Fire Department for 15 years, both as a volunteer and as a full-time employee. He had a passion for photography as well as collecting and restoring motorcycles.
Dennis had a heart for service. He was a master at seeing a need and fulfilling it. He never met a stranger and always had an uplifting word for anyone he came across.
Dennis is survived by his wife, Tammy; his son, James (wife Rachel); his daughter, Shelly; his brother, Ed (wife Kate); his nephew, John (wife Dorothy); and his unofficially adopted son, Cameran.
You can remember Dennis by living as he did. Do something nice for someone, share a smile, give a compliment, lend a helping hand, love with all your heart…
