Dennis Keith Stanhope

Dennis Keith Stanhope, age 81, went to be with his Lord and Savior on November 9, 2022. He was born December 13, 1940, in Oklahoma City, OK to Leonard E. and Marguerite (nee Paulson) Stanhope. Loving husband of 57 years to Karen Stanhope (nee Farley). Beloved Father of Spencer Stanhope, Lynne Buckingham, Melody (Larry) Willis, and Amy (Kevin) Mason. Cherished Grandfather of Stephen, Robbie, Rebecca, Amber, Kristen, Brooke, Elijah, Rachel, Levi, Emma, Gray, Ella, and Eli. Loving Great-Grandfather of 5. Brother of Eddie Gallemore, and Ron Stanhope. Also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.

Dennis met Karen at the train station in Dallas, TX when he was asked to pick her up and bring her to the college office. They both attended Independent Baptist School of the Bible in Dallas, Texas where he graduated in May 1965. They were married January 22, 1966 and moved to Alaska in 1967 where they remained for 11 years, starting Trinity Baptist Mission in Fairbanks, Alaska and teaching in a Christian School.

In 1978, they moved to Oklahoma City where he continued teaching in a Christian School. In 1986, they moved to Milford, Ohio where he taught a few more years before joining H.C. Nutting Company (now Terracon) where he tested concrete for construction projects until retirement.

Dennis and Karen have attended Crosspointe Baptist Church for 30 years where he has ministered in several different compacities. Dennis was always a family man who worked hard to support and encourage his family. He could be found on the sideline cheering for his children and grandchildren. In 2010, Dennis and Karen moved to Peebles, Ohio with their daughter Amy and her family who had purchased a 29-acre farm. Dennis left this world doing what he loved, caring for his animals.

A Visitation will take place Monday, November 14, 2022, from 3pm until 5pm at Crosspointe Baptist Church, 4596 Bells Ln, Cincinnati, OH 45244. Service to follow at 5pm. Dennis is ultimately to be cremated, and the family will be taking him to be buried on the farm. This is at their convenience, and no public service is planned.

The service will be live-streamed at the follow link.

I knew Dennis at Alaska Nat'l Bank in Fairbanks in the late 1960's. He was always smiling and friendly, which left me with fond memories.

We have loved getting to know Dennis and Karen over the past few years. Denny would show us pictures of his goats and cats or some amazing adventure they had just gotten home from. He impressed and inspired us with his zest for life. His loyalty and love for his wife will forever live on in people's hearts and his love for the Lord, most of all. We are thankful for the friend and role model we had in Dennis and will never forget him. Just thinking of him makes me smile. He will be missed deeply.
