Hissom, Earl G. Hissom

Birth: Dec. 20, 1920 Charleston Kanawha County West Virginia, USA.   Death: Jun. 8, 2005 Fairlea Greenbrier County West Virginia, USA

Rev. Hissom was the son of Rev. Earl G. Hissom Sr. and Tressa Lena DODD. The Rev. Hissom is survived by his three children, Earl G. Hissom III, Th.D., of Charleston, Judith Hall of Kentucky and Sharon Reed of Colliers, W.Va.; eight grandchildren, Eric and Phil Hissom of Florida, Yvonne Donlon of Charleston, Jeff LaChance of Delaware, Brad LaChance and Kye Fadeley of Texas, Kristy LaChance of North Carolina and Joya Fadeley of California; and four great-grandchildren. He is further survived by two brothers and one sister of Charleston, Earnest, Albert and Roxie Hamer.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Julia; parents, Earl and Tressa Hissom; brother, Charles and George; and sisters, Mary Graham, Elizabeth Cash, Betty Atkins and Carol Ross. Rev. Earl Jr. was a minister, evangelist and religious leader in West Virginia. He was converted and called to preach at age 17 in a tent meeting being conducted by his father, Earl G. Hissom Sr., located at the corner of Madison and Randolph Streets, the current location of Sav-A-Lot and Agsten Manor. Before joining the Church of the Nazarene in 1945, the Rev. Hissom sold Bibles, held tent meetings, conducted revivals and preached whenever and wherever he could. He then pastored at Uneeda and Seth. When the Seth church was organized into a Nazarene Church by District Superintendent Dr. Oney, he lost his pastorate. Dr. Oney said, "That's okay, son. Don't be upset. The Church of the Nazarene has lots of places for you to preach." And they kept him busy the next 25 years, pasturing in Seth, New Martinsville, Glasgow, Weirton, Southeast Nazarene and Capitol View Nazarene in Charleston. He also served as an evangelist. During the years that he pastored for the Church of the Nazarene, the Rev. Hissom was able to report gains in all departments with all budgets paid. At every pastorate, he made notable capital improvements to church properties. He served on various boards and committees of the West Virginia District of the Church of the Nazarene. The Rev. Hissom was instrumental in planting several Holiness churches, including Burnsville, Ohio, Paris, Pa., Handley, Hooverson Heights, Colliers Way, Capitol View (now known as South Hills Church of the Nazarene) and the Church of Emmanuel in Charleston, and Gap Mills. The Rev. Hissom served as a mentor and encourager for many young, aspiring ministers, such as John Hancock, Harold Runyon, Carl Gray, James Withrow, Paul Nester, Tony Costello and many others. During a recent telephone call, Mrs. John Hancock expressed their deep appreciation for the tremendous amount of time the Rev. Hissom spent with them in their early Christian lives. After his retirement from the Nazarene Church, the Rev. Hissom operated a Bible selling business, pastored the Hissom Holiness Tabernacle and the Church of Emmanuel, Charleston, and Harry Peyton Tabernacle, Hinton. He continued to hold revivals across the state of West Virginia, preach whenever and wherever he was called and frequently conducted radio broadcasts. He also worked as a fundraiser throughout the state for fire and police departments, emergency services and health clinics through RMJ Studios. The Rev. Hissom was a renowned Bible scholar. His favorite pastime was studying the Bible, preparing sermons and discussing the scriptures. His hobbies were walking, hunting and watching old westerns on TV.

Joseph, James L. Joseph

Source:  The Charleston [West Virginia] Daily Mail  - Tuesday, May 24, 2005

        James L. "Gump" Joseph, 83, of Madison is now at peace, without pain and sorrow. He can now be with his loving wife, Beryl, with whom he shared a life for 53 years. His favorite song, "He Stopped Loving Her Today," is now a reality for his family. Our father and grandfather passed away of a broken heart on Saturday, May 21, 2005, at Meadowbrook Assisted Living, Camp Creek.

        He was born May 4, 1922, to Bannie and Elmer Joseph of St. Albans.

        Coming to Madison in the late 20s, he and his mother, brother and sister made their home on Miller Hill with Uncle John. He was raised to be a farm hand but when his country called him to duty in 1941, he became a soldier. He first served in the U.S. Navy, then enlisted in the Army where he was a sergeant and platoon leader. He was awarded four Bronze Star Medals, the Good Conduct Medal and a Purple Heart for his actions in Normandy, Rhineland, Northern France and Central Europe. He was a life member of VFW Post 5578, Madison.

        He married his childhood sweetheart, Beryl White, in 1945 and they had two daughters, Beverly and Alice. In the spring of 1948, he was asked by John Byrnside to help with an opening and closing of a grave in Boone Memorial Cemetery. He then became caretaker after J.D. Craddock retired. Then, in 1980, Ira and Judy Handley became his employers and friends, where he remained loyal and faithful, giving his loving care to help others with their bereavement for over 63 years.

        His life cannot be measured by the material things, but by the kind deeds he did for others. Our family has surely been blessed with, not one, but two loving parents. Our father was a kind and honest man who loved music, a good joke and a game of cards.

        He was preceded in death by his wife, Beryl White Joseph; mother, Bannie Joseph; father, Elmer Joseph; a brother, Lynard Joseph; and a sister, Beatrice Perdue.

        He leaves behind daughter and their husbands, Beverly and Teddy Martin of Charleston and Alice and Barry Rider of Haddleton, with whom he made his home for the past year; granddaughters, Amber Parks of Columbus, Ohio, Tara Parks of Cross Lanes, Kelly and husband, Ray Bennett, of Foster, Shellia and husband, Sgt. Jamie Johnson of Jacksonville, N.C., and Natalie and husband, Adam Brown of Haddleton; great-granddaughters, Lilly E. Bennett and Shelby Johnson; and one great-grandson, Griffin James Bennett.

        The family would like to say a special "thank you" to Rhonda Hill and the staff of Meadowbrook Assisted Living. You are angels here on earth.

        A military graveside service will be 11 a.m. Wednesday, May 25, in Boone Memorial Park, Haddleton, conducted by VFW Post 5578, Madison. Pallbearers will be Bill Shreve, Willie Patton, Charles Curry, Paul Fowler, Bobby Shreve and Roger Albright.

        Friends may call from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Handley Funeral Home, Danville.
