He leaves to cherish his memory, two daughters, Marilyn Henry, of Gulfport, MS and Ovier Lewis (Hollie) Gutter, of Picayune, MS; and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, cousins, other loving relatives and friends.
Interment will be in Picayune Cemetery. Entrusted to Brown’s Funeral Home (601) 798-4469.
