Malcolm "Papa" Emanuel Sr., 74, passed away peacefully at his home Dec. 24, 2016 in Paris, Ky.
He was born Aug. 4, 1942, in Vidalia, Ga., to the late Wiley Edward Emanuel and Myrtle H. Emanuel. Malcolm was one of six children; and was preceded in death by a brother Buddy and sisters, Pearlie (Wes), Aunt Mickey (J.W.) and Edna (Howard).
Survivors include: his sister, Evalene; three nieces, Donna Marie, Connie Hendrix, and Mary Henry.
Malcolm took great pride in his career as a soldier in the Vietnam war, proudly and humbly served between 1963-1970. After returning home to Jacksonville, Fla., he began a 40+ year long career as a brick mason. Not just a hard-working career man, Malcolm was a husband and father.
He is preceded in death by his ex-wife, Dorris Dennis (Thompson) in 2002. The two shared four children includes Franchesca (Modou), Malcolm James Jr. (Judy), Robin (Sydney), and Amanda "Mandi" (deceased).
Malcolm divorced and remarried in 1991 to Jimmie Bath. He has five grandchildren, Derek (Jennifer) Emanuel, Melinda (Eulises) Diaz-DeLoach, Jessica (Agustin) DeLoach-Carrillo, Mikayla Mendoza (Justin), Thomas (Kaitlyn) Gomez; and eight great-grandchildren, Julian, Shandi, Aiden, Colton, Natalia, Cristian, Jocelyn and baby Jaxon. For the last seven years Malcolm lived with his eldest daughter Franchesca and her husband Modou. Both Fran and Modou dedicated many days and nights caring for Malcolm. He may have suffered but he fought a grand battle all the way to the end but he did not ever lose his dignity through it all. He did not lose his fight because of the hope of the resurrection. We will all see him again in pure health soon.
So many helped care for Malcolm including: Charlie (Fran's ex-husband), Robin, Sydney, Leara, Gina, Jessica, Nelson, Beverly's Angels and Papa's special friend James Cowen.
A memorial service was held Jan. 9 at River of Life Ministries Church, Paris, Ky. and burial was in Glennville, Ga. Military Cemetery.
Care Crematon Funeral Service was in charge of arrangements.
