Winfred Tremmell Almond Sr. Obituary
COUSHATTA, LA - Funeral services for Winfred Tremmell Almond, Sr., 87, of Coushatta, LA will be held at 2 P.M. Sunday, November 21, 2010 at First Baptist Church with Bro. Bill Hines officiating and Bro. Nathan Davis assisting. Interment will follow in Springville Cemetery. Funeral services under the direction of Rockett-Nettles Funeral Home, Coushatta, LA.
Mr. Almond was born November 8, 1923 in Coushatta, LA and passed away November 19, 2010. He retired from Almond Brothers Lumber Company, being one of the original second generation of the family's lumber business. Mr. Almond proudly served his country during World War II and the Pacific Campaign receiving a purple heart for his valiant service. He continually prayed for his country and remembered those who served as well as his fallen comrades. He was a deacon of the First Baptist Church and he exemplified his Christianity daily while instilling Christian and family values to his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He was truly a family man—a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather to whom he was affectionately known as Pappaw, Poppy, and T-Bird. He spent endless hours nurturing and teaching not only his family, but also his extended family who meant so much to him. His words of wisdom will always be instilled in the lives of those he touched. He had a wonderful gift of patience, time, and generosity which he shared with all those who knew him, both young and old.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Reno and Elma Adams Almond; three brothers, Reno Almond, Jr., Laurie Almond, and Cecil A. "Tonnie" Almond, Sr.; one sister, Sue Almond Morgan; nephew, Cecil A. Almond, Jr.; and brother-in-law, James C. Glover.
