You most likely knew him as “Jolly Cholly.” He now feasts with our merciful and gracious Christ in heaven where everything is perfect, including Jolly Cholly. As a father, he gave to each of his children everything they needed to be lifters rather than leaners in life, including a heritage of walking with Christ.
He was married to his wife, Ruth, for 58 years and was loving, serving, patient and generous. He was father to DeWayne, Debbie, Robbie, Tommy, Tracie, Jon and Chris.
He was and continues to be a blessing to Ruth; his children; his 15 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and so many friends and family.
