BARTHOLOMEW, WILLIAM JOHN  
Fayette County - William john Bartholomew Mr. Bartholomew, patriarch of the Bartholomew family, first in Memphis and later in Fayette County, died Saturday, January 24, 2015, at the age of 85. He and his wife, the late June Edwards Bartholomew, reared their six children in the Sherwood Forest area of Memphis, until they moved to their Fayette County farm in 1981. A consummate real estate attorney for almost sixty years, his greatest love was his family. Born in Blytheville, Arkansas, to Byron S. Bartholomew and Cleo Langdon Bartholomew, Mr. Bartholomew’s family moved in his infancy to Memphis, where he attended Bruce Elementary, Bellevue Junior High, and Central High School (Class of 1947), where he played football and was voted Most Handsome. He married his high school sweetheart, June, and while starting their family, attended Southwestern at Memphis (Rhodes College) and completed his law degree at Southern Law University in 1956. His practice of law in Memphis was followed by his law practice in Somerville with his daughter, Julie, and he worked daily until his passing. Mr. Bartholomew was active all his life, coaching his sons in Little League baseball, serving as their troop Scoutmaster, and playing softball with them for St. Mary’s Episcopal Church until in his sixties. He spent all of his time away from work with his wife and family, sons David and his wife, Kathleen Bartholomew, Sam (who predeceased him) and his wife, Becky Bartholomew, Joel and his wife, Beth Bartholomew, and Paul and his wife, Tricia Bartholomew; and daughters Julie Bartholomew and her husband, Randy Beckworth, and Laurie Bartholomew and her husband, Garen Shrader. He had 17 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren, as well, forming a large and close-knit family. Mr. Bartholomew is also survived by his brothers, Bart and his wife, Jackie Bartholomew of Springfield, Virginia, Charlie Bartholomew of St. Louis, Missouri, and his sister, Ann Lee, of Franklin, Tennessee, and countless nephews and nieces, with all of whom he was close. He was predeceased by his granddaughter, Amelia Bartholomew. Mr. Bartholomew (or “Pop”, as he was affectionately known) always anticipated his family’s needs and met them without being asked. He was the most popular father among his children’s friends, and was well-liked by everyone with whom he came in contact. He took pride in his family’s accomplishments, which were chiefly due to his and June’s values and their support. He always thought of others before himself. Pop most recently enjoyed attending First Baptist Church of Macon. His family and friends thought he was the smartest, wittiest, most fun-loving and most family-centered man they knew. He loved his farm and family, all of whom will miss his daily presence. Visitation will be from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, January 27 and services will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, January 28 at Peebles West Funeral Chapel at Oakland, Tennessee. The family requests that any memorials be directed to the American Heart Association, 2170 Business Center Drive, Suite 1, Bartlett, TN 38134.

BROWN, MICHAEL GEORGE LEWIS - Olive Branch  
Michael George Lewis Brown spent his 33 years pursuing his dreams. He was born in Colorado in 1981 to Angela Bishop Brown and George Michael Brown. From the beginning he was a Broncos’ fan and that remained constant throughout his life. An avid golfer since childhood he aspired to the PGA and became a PGA certified Pro. He got to work in the field he loved at a variety of establishments ending up at Olive Branch Country Club as the head golf professional. He graduated high school in Englewood, CO and got his degree from Ottawa University in Kansas in 2007. While in college, he met the girl of those dreams and married Andrea Wieseler Brown in 2008. They were blessed to become the parents of two remarkable little boys in 2010. The twins inherited their Dad’s fighting spirit and loved visiting him at the course. Enjoying his friends and family was one of Michael’s favorite things from cheering on his favorite sports teams, to bowling, to playing in the park with the boys. A result of his traveling and “never met a stranger” personality, he leaves an impression with friends and family from coast to coast. Michael’s survived by his loving wife, Andrea; precious boys, John and Deekan; his parents, and grandparents. He’ll also be missed by a large extended family of nieces nephews and cousins. A celebration of Michael’s life will be celebrated Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. at Queen of Peace Catholic Church with a funeral mass Thursday morning at 10 a.m. Condolences may be made online at www.BrantleyFuneral.com Brantley Funeral Home (662)895-2310

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to The King's Daughters and Sons Home, 3568 Appling Rd, Bartlett, TN 38133.

BELZ, DR. IRVING - Houston  
Dr. Irving Belz of Houston, Texas, formerly of Memphis, Tennessee, passed away Saturday, the 10th of January 2015, after a long battle with lung disease. Dr. Belz was born in Chicago, Illinois to Rose and Jacob Belz the 3rd of August 1937. In 1946, the family moved to Memphis, Tennessee, the former home of Irving’s father, Jacob, so that his father and uncles could work together at the Sam Belz Upholstered Products Company, a furniture factory. Irving was a proud product of the Memphis City School System, attending Bethel Grove, Fairview, Snowden and graduating from Central High School. While at Snowden Junior High School, Irving brought great pride to not only his family but the whole City of Memphis, becoming in May of 1951, the first Memphian to win the Scripps-Howard National Spelling Bee. After graduation from Central High School, Irving attended Tulane University and then graduated from Southwestern (Rhodes) College in Memphis. Irving became a doctor, graduating from the University Of Tennessee Medical School in 1961. After graduation Dr. Belz served in the United States Army Medical Corps, obtaining the rank of Captain. Upon completion of an internship at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago and a Psychiatric residency in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Dr. Belz joined a fellow graduate and friend, Dr. Jules Bohnn in a private practice in Houston, Texas. Because of his desire to help the underprivileged, Dr. Belz left private practice to become the Medical Director of the Harris County MHMR Authority. The face of mental health services for jails began to change as Dr. Belz instituted reforms that would result in a new county jail with a separate floor for the mental health population. Also during his tenure as director, federal grants were obtained to establish Pyramid House, the first club house model in Texas. Dr. Belz’s work designing and constructing, along with a team of professionals, the Harris County Mental Health Hospital was perhaps his greatest contribution to the community. Having completed his work in Houston, Dr. Belz moved to Dallas as Medical Director for Dallas County MHMR. His next move was to Tri-Counties Mental Health in Conroe and then to retirement where he continued working two to three days a weeks, even while on oxygen, for Gulf Coast Mental Health in Alvin. Along the way, he married his life partner, Dorla Whitman, who mourns him today and forever. Dr. Belz was predeceased by his parents, Rose and Jacob J. Belz; and his son, Jason Belz. He is survived by his loving wife, Dorla Belz; brother and sister-in-law, Saul and Betsy Belz and his many loving cousins in Memphis; stepchildren Deborah Cowger, Brandon Whitman, Mitchell Whitman and their families. Funeral services were private according to Dr. Belz’s wishes. A contribution in his honor may be made to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation or to your local mental health authority. Geo H. Lewis & Sons Funeral Directors 1010 Bering Drive Houston, Texas 77057 713-789-3005
