Alvin Cary Denard

Alvin Cary Denard, 59, of Williamsburg, Va. passed away on March 11, 2021, at Bon Secours Memorial Hospital in Richmond, Va. surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Lung Cancer. 

Cary, born on Jan. 24, 1962, was Director of Sales with Bluegreen Vacations. Surviving are his loving wife, Michele; daughter and son-in-law, Jessica and Jonathan Matthews; son, Matthew Oravetz; his two fur babies, Caymus and Bella; parents, Clarence and Jean Denard; sisters and brothers-in-law; Sherry and Reggie Van Hoozer and Renee and Steve Wright; brother and sister-in-law, Stanley and Angie Denard; special niece, Tara and Tim Hamby; great-nieces, Karley and Karson Hamby; special nephews, Justin Denard, Colby Denard and fiancé Amber Whaley; great-nephew, Landyn Harris; all of these among a number of other beloved relatives. 

Although being away from his hometown of Dawsonville for many years, Cary maintained a close relationship with many of his former high school classmates and friends. They all marveled at Cary’s strong will, fight and determination to overcome the diseases which were to ultimately take him home to be with his Lord. 

Cary was the most selfless person, full of life and genuine love. He lived by his favorite quote, “In life, it’s not what happens to you, it’s how you respond.” Let these words live on. 

A memorial service will be held in Dawsonville at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Lumpkin Campground, 100 S Lumpkin Campground Road, Dawsonville, Georgia 30534.

Bearden Funeral Home of Dawsonville is in charge of the arrangements.
