Dennis Sprouse

Dennis Sprouse 67, of Amarillo TX stepped from this earth to his eternal home June 12, 2023. He was born to William “Bill” D. Sprouse and Rutha B. Sprouse February 26, 1956, in Oklahoma.

Dennis was a man that enjoyed the simplicity of life, family and friendship. He was a man of few words, but when he spoke, he spoke with intentionality. A sign painter by trade, his skill and giftedness to letter and pinstripe just about everything allowed him to not only travel the country painting race cars, boats, semi-trucks and anything else someone would want a touch of custom artwork on, it allowed him to build friendships with people from every walk of life, known as “Brush master” by many he had a following that stretched far beyond the Texas panhandle, he has been described as a local legend in the area, especially in the many car and motorcycle clubs and individuals that had the privilege to have his handy work done on their vehicle, during those paint session he would share stories of hard lessons learned, special moments he encountered with people, he was full of great wisdom. If Dennis called you friend, you had a friend for life. After many years of as he would say “Ramblin around” he met and married the Love of his life Nancy, and for the next 30 years they shared a love that many could only dream of, he would say everything I do I do for “momma” as he lovingly referred to Nancy.

Dennis was preceded in death by his parents William and Rutha Sprouse, one sister Dorothy Whiteside, and his beloved wife Nancy Sprouse.

Dennis is survived by his sisters Theresa Shirley, Mary Butler, Deborah Switzer, Brenda Raven; his children Charo Dee La Rosa, Deborah Moore, Shauna Castro, David Kinzer; two stepsons Robert Burton and wife Darlene, and Robert Summers; multiple grandchildren, great- grandchildren and many, many friends.

Celebration of life service will be held Tuesday June 27th at 10:00 am @ Thompson Park Picnic Area #24.

The family requests that you bring your vehicles Dennis painted.
