Dennis Ray Thurlow, 65, of Spring Lake passed away on June 30, 2022.\n\nDennis was born on March 28, 1957 in Aroostook, Maine at Loring Air Force Base to Joyce Ann Argraves Thurlow and Pearl Robert "Bob" Thurlow.\n\nBesides his parents, he is survived by the love of his life for 42 years, Nancy "Fields"; two sisters, Susan and Sharon; one brother, Dwain and many friends and family members.\n\nDennis was raised in an Air Force family, who moved several times throughout his childhood. They eventually settled in Augusta, where as a young adult, he found it his duty to do his part for America. He joined the Marine Corps where he excelled in everything the Corp stood for. After his time in service, he returned to Aroostook County to find his purpose in life. That's where he met his longtime love, Fields and because of his nomadic spirit and her willingness to go - "the ride began."\n\nDennis worked hard for everything he had; he traded and bartered for muscle cars that most people could only dream of. His first job was at a private Harley Davidson shop in Caribou, that was when he really found what ran through his veins - definitely 50 weight. Dennis and Nancy began their journey From Maine to Florida, Connecticut to Massachusetts, and California to North Carolina. He took a job at Cape Fear Harley Davidson in 1995 and they made Fayetteville home. Although he had built race bikes and drag bikes in his earlier years, settling in Fayetteville was the beginning of the master builder that many people know and love today.\n\nIn Lieu of flowers, please consider making a memorial contribution in honor of Dennis to Make-A-Wish by visiting www.wish.org.\n\nThere will be a celebration of Dennis's life on Sunday, July 17, 2022 at Adcock Funeral Home and Crematory in Spring Lake.
