Edward Ray McCall

Edward Ray McCall, 60, of Brevard, went home to be with the Lord Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2018, after an extended battle with cancer.

He was preceded in death by his father, Ray McCall.

He is survived by his mother, Ruth Pressley, of Brevard; his wife of 33 years, Marenda Jones; sons, A.J. Sizemore and wife, Rebecca, of Brevard, and Ethan McCall, of the home; daughter, Melissa Ann McCall, of Forest City, N.C .; brothers, Michael and wife, Wanda and Ricky and wife, Marie, both of Brevard, and Harley and wife, Teresa, of Ft. Walton Beach, Fla .; sister, Nancy Brittan and husband, Bobby, of Brevard; grandsons, Silas Sizemore, and Hunter and Stone Eubanks; granddaughter, Brooke Eubanks, and Carter Reese, who also called him "PaPaw;" special sisters-in-law, Martha Baynard, and Thelma Galloway; along with a large number of nieces and nephews.

He loved to work. He started at Charlie's Tire at the age of 13 to help support his brothers; he worked for Wick Haynes, of Haynes Construction, who treated him as a son. He said that he was the father figure he never had, as his dad died when he was 10 years old.

He worked at Moody-Connolly Funeral Home, where he met his wife, Marenda; Robert Chappell/Rogers Masonry, where he loved working with Mike Rogers and the boys (as fellow employees, nephews and his comedy team, who made him laugh and look forward to the next day).

He was a quite, peaceful man with many talents. He loved the outdoors, and when he was home, you could find him working in the yard or sitting on the porch enjoying the view of his life's work. He was always willing to help anyone who asked him for help.

His hobbies included hunting, fishing and the great outdoors.

The funeral service was held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018, at Glady Branch Baptist Church, with Rev. Michael J. Rogers, Rev. Isaac K. Rogers and Rev. Wes Parker, officiating.

The family received friends from 1 to 3 p.m. at the church.
