Carl Edward Wilkerson

Carl Edward Wilkerson, 92, was born Nov. 20, 1919, to the union of Charlie and Katy Missouri Wilkerson in Evensville. He passed away on Thursday, Aug. 23, 2012, at his home.
He was preceded in death by his wife of many years, Mabel Myers Wilkerson, on Sept. 18, 1995; and a daughter-in-law, Claudette Myers.
Left to cherish his memory are his children, grandchildren, extensive family and many friends. They are listed as follows: Alfred and Bessie Myers, Kingston, with several children and grandchildren; Clyde Myers, Morristown, with three children and grandchildren; Mary and Narvel Martin, Harriman, with two children and two grandchildren; Arnold and Delphine Wilkerson, Harriman, with two children and two grandchildren; Edna and Charles Moore, Harriman, with four children and 15 grandchildren; Annette and Frederick Coleman, Harriman, with two children and four grandchildren; a very special friend, J.D. Goins (his porch pal); a host of numerous family and friends who will greatly miss him.
He was a life-time member, a senior deacon and a former trustee of Bazeltown Baptist Church. He loved the Lord and brought his family up with a reverence for God. He enjoyed gardening, fishing, hunting, music and baseball. He loved his family and friends and was very witty. He was a sincere and straight-forward man with a great sense of humor; most found it hard to get anything over on him. Some had special names for him â€" Dad, Pappaw, Uncle Carl, Ridge-runner, Sneedy â€" and they were all given with love and respect.
The family received friends from 11 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Aug. 28, in Bazeltown Baptist Church, Harriman. The funeral was at noon, with the Rev. Dr. Joseph L. Weaver officiating. The graveside service and burial were at New Bazeltown Cemetery in Harriman. Evans Mortuary, Rockwood, was in charge of arrangements.
