Dennis W. “JB” Moorehead, 71, of Gratiot, died at 2:40 P.M. on Sunday, April 25, 2021 at Select Specialty Hospital, Newark.

He was the owner and operator of Moorehead & Son Trucking and a member of Eagles #302 and Moose Lodge #867. He loved to spend time with his grandchildren, enjoyed golf, baseball, and football.
