Earl Cedell Chessher, Jr.


 

 

 
Earl Cedell Chessher Jr., 68, of Huntington Beach, California, passed away April 25, 2017, in California.
 
Funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Thursday, May 11, 2017, at Watson & Sons Funeral Home in Center with Bro. Bobby Waller and Bro. Cecil Chessher officiating.  Interment will follow at Weaver Cemetery in Timpson.  Visitation will be held prior to the service, beginning at 11:00 a.m.
 
Earl was born the 8th of January, 1949 to Earl and Margaret Chessher. The oldest of 5 children, he spent his youth doing what every young man of that time did, but even then you could see his ambition and drive. 
After graduating from McArthur High School in Houston, Texas, he soon married and entered into the business world, where he became the manager of the Fedmart stores. But, business was not to be Earl's calling. He soon turned back to his first love... Journalism and Photography... where he spent the rest of his life passionately chasing his dream. 
 
And... what a life it was! As a photo-journalist in Sweetwater, Texas... he covered the Rattlesnake roundup. He was published in national magazines as a contributing writer. He worked in East Texas as an editor and journalist at various newspapers where he would show up to cover a story in a red Corvette. At times, he was bigger than life. But, never one to rest on his laurels, he soon chased his dream to California where once again, he worked as a photo-journalist for Leisure World Newspaper. Then, as an author and videographer and finally as an entrepreneur. He was what society calls a career journalist, author, and business man but at heart he was always a storyteller. All throughout history there have been those individuals who have told the stories of life. First, it was by the fire. Then, by the written word, and now digitally thru video. Many times these storytellers have been overlooked by the world but their lives and stories are the fabric that hold us together as a people. They inspire us. They inform us. And sometimes, they convict us. They are the consciousness of society.
 
Earl was the consummate storyteller. He was at home whether telling a story beside a campfire in East Texas at deer camp. Or, behind a keyboard finishing a book. Or, telling the story of someone's life event with video. His stories were sometimes tall tales, sometimes inspirational, but always entertaining. I will miss his humor and wit but I know every time I sit beside a windswept fire, or finish a good book, or realize a dream.. I will remember the greatest storyteller I have ever known....
 
He is survived by
Son: Travis Earl Chessher of Rogers, Arkansas
 
Grandchildren:
Malachi Dakota Chessher of Waco, Texas
Jason Lee Chessher of Rogers, Arkansas
Sherry Lynne Nicole Chessher of Rogers, Arkansas
Christian Wyatt James Chessher of Rogers, Arkansas
 
Brothers and Sisters:
Clarence Thomas Chessher of Timpson, Texas
Philda Adams and husband, Steve, of Timpson, Texas
Jacquelyn Fountain and husband, Donny, of Center, Texas
Cecil Chessher and wife, Gina, of Center
 
Very Special Friend and Business Partner: Mary Ann Osness and husband, Bill
 
Numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends
 
Preceded in death by
Parents: Earl Cedell Chessher, Sr. and Margaret Nell Mitchamore Chessher
 
Pallbearers will be Clarence Chessher, Garrett Adams, Luis Lopez, Darren Fountain, Caden Chessher and Tom Guynes.  Honorary pallbearers will be Andy Cockrell and Blaine Tappley.

LG grew up in Choudrant, Louisiana before moving to Timpson with his family. He was extremely talented and a natural athlete that excelled at all of the activities he participated in while in high school. After graduation, LG entered the military and soon after returning home, married the love of his life, Billie Joy Fitts in 1948. LG devoted a lifetime of service to his community as County Commissioner until retirement. 
 
LG was a very laid back, kind, and compassionate individual. He never met a stranger and made sure to make you feel special if he saw you around town. LG was sure to enjoy himself no matter what he was doing. He was drawn to the outdoors where he spent much of his time fishing, hunting, or playing golf. Baseball was also a favorite pastime of his. 
 
LG was surrounded by a family filled with love. He is survived by his faithful wife of 68 years, Billie Joy; two sons, Ricky Allen and wife, Brenda, and Bradley Allen; one brother, R.S. Allen and wife, Sandra, one sister, Evelyn McLeroy; five grandchildren, Michael Allen, Kyle Allen and wife, Tisha, Jacob Allen, Amy Allen, Katie Norman and husband, Clayton; ten great grandchildren; and dearest family friends, Robin and Duncan Connell.  He is preceded in death by his parents, Larcus Green Allen, Sr. and Eva Frazier and sister Claudine Barrett.
 
The Allen family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Garrison Nursing Home who so lovingly stood beside and served LG during his stay there until his passing. 
Pallbearers for Mr. Allen’s service are Kyle Allen, Jacob Allen, Bryan Stinnett, Clayton Norman, William Lum Edwards, and Kenny Smith.  The family is being served by Taylor Funeral Home in Timpson, Texas.
