Romey Jack Canada left this mortal home, which he was just passing through, on August 9, 2017 at the age of 83, to cast his crowns at Jesus' feet, and to sing praises to his Lord for eternity.
He was born in Maben, the son of the late Cecil A Canada and Zettie Clay Canada.
Jack served 21 and half years in United States Air Force; an avid church member since 1986; and a well- known bee keeper.
Jack was loved and respected by many friends and family.
Those left to be greeted at the gates of heaven are his beloved wife of 62 years, Frances Shrewsbury Canada; also surviving are Charlotte Canada Ransom (husband, David) of Rainelle, Karen Canada Lilly (husband, Roscoe) of Statesville NC, Zettie Canada Staley (husband, Mark) of Bethlehem GA, and Cecil J Canada (wife, Mary) of Beaver; nine grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
A Service of Remembrance will be Saturday, August 12 at 11 am at the Melton Mortuary Chapel. Burial will follow in the Sunset Memorial Park. The family is receiving friends on Friday, August 11 from 6 to 8:30 pm and one hour prior to the service.
