Pirkle, Lee Grant - Waycross  
Lee Grant Pirkle, age 82, of Waycross passed away Sunday, Feb. 22, 2015, at Hospice Satilla Hospice House after an extended illness. He was born in Dawson County, May 4, 1932, to the late Carl W. and Jennie Bell Grant Pirkle. Mr. Pirkle had made his home in Waycross for the past 45 years. He was a member of Central Baptist Church.

After his retirement from the United States Department of Agriculture in 1984, he became the pastor of Haywood Baptist Church. He also served as pastor at Ten Mile Baptist Church, and as a pulpit supply pastor for various churches in the Waycross area. He enjoyed gardening and building small projects. His love for his family was evident and his greatest desire was to know that they, as well as anyone he came into contact with, had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by an infant son, Marcus Allen Pirkle; two brothers, George Pirkle and Reed Pirkle; a sister, Eva Mae Talley; parents-in-law, Lee and Eldie Hammond; brothers-in-law, Y.J.

Mr. Pirkle is survived by his wife of 60 years, Ruby Hammond Pirkle of Waycross; three sons, Philip Pirkle (Sharon) of Thomson, Thomas Pirkle (Jodi) of Hahira, and John Pirkle (Tammy) of Waycross; three daughters, Darlene Pirkle, Denise Pirkle Bennett, and Dolores Pirkle Stipe (Steve), all of Waycross; 10 grandchildren, Brad Pirkle (Natalie), Amy Pirkle (Jamey), Sara Pirkle Hughes (Scott), Jenny Pirkle, Andrew Bennett (Stephanie), Timothy Bennett, Amanda Stipe, Steven Stipe, Grant Pirkle, and Callie Pirkle; two sisters, Lela Bennett (Lane) of Gainesville, and Lona Thomason of Cumming; brothers-in-law, Jim Hammond (Jean) of Gainesville, Kenneth Hammond (Wanoga) of Cumming, Norman Butterworth (Doris) of Canton, and Cloys Milford (Nancy) of Cumming; sisters-in-law, Mary Pirkle (Donald) of Cumming, Diane Buice of Dahlonega, and Martha Hammond of Cumming; numerous nieces and nephews; three step grandchildren, Joey Morgan (Geneva), Jessica Crews (Brantley) and Amaris Cox (Hunter); six stepgreat-grandchildren; and other relatives. The family expresses their sincere appreciation to everyone at Hospice Satilla for the compassionate and loving care that was given to Mr. Pirkle and his family. They would like to especially thank his primary hospice nurse, Amy Mock, and Dr. Donald Waters for their extraordinary care. Visitation will be Friday, Feb. 27, from 6-8 p.m. at Memorial Park Funeral Home in Gainesville. The funeral service will be held Saturday, Feb. 28, at 2 p.m. at the funeral home.
