Denny Scott Totten

Denny Scott Totten, 73, of 266 Beaver Lodge Circle went home to be with The Lord Saturday, January 30, 2021 at Pelican Health.

Funeral services will be held 11:00 am Wednesday, February 3, 2021 at Wilkerson Funeral Home with Rev. Ron Tuck and Rev. Ryan Crowder officiating. The graveside service will follow at Reidlawn Cemetery. Denny will be available for viewing on Tuesday, from 1:00 – 5:00 PM at Wilkerson Funeral Home. Also, the family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home. Please be considerate of the family by remembering social distancing and wearing a mask. Sarah Totten will be accepting visitors at her house. Thanks for everyone who has already visited, called and emailed their condolences and brought refreshments.

Special thanks to Sana Somali, Edith Bradley, Deborah Hearn, Tiffany Waters, Lisa Hairston, Tracey Fountain, Tabitha Hall, Brenda Pitts, Debbie Powell and the rest of the staff at Pelican Health for their loving care over the last seven years and to the Hospice staff during his final days.

He served his country as a Marine and then was with the Reidsville Police Department for over 20 years. After retirement, he remained service-minded and worked with the elderly helping them with transportation and insurance issues. He was always up for shuffleboard and a good game of Rook, where he loved to "shoot the moon!"

He enjoyed traveling and exploring new places with family and friends. He was involved with the Shriners and the Masons, where he was a Master Mason. He was of the Baptist faith and loved talking to his Pastor Ron Tuck about the Carolina Tarheels.

Denny was preceded in death by his parents William and Esther Totten; sisters Ruth Nelson and Cleo Fulcher; brothers Bill Totten and Banks Totten.

He is survived by his wife, Sarah Totten; daughter, Michelle Kenny and husband Jim; grandchildren James and Sarah Beth Kenny; and a large extended family.

I knew Denny best through the court system. He was always honest, straightforward, and polite in his countenace in my dealings with him. I had a great respect and esteem for the way he performed his duties. He was a good, decent man.
