He spent many happy years attending school at Campbell High School where he met many friends in whom he continued to keep in touch with and even at the age of 84 attended his school reunion with his classmates. Roy joined the United States Army and after the Army entered into a career that would continue with him throughout his life. He loved driving a truck, first with his brother team driving, and then on to many years of air freight deliver, hauling oilfield pipe, and retiring as a truck driver with his last loads being that of lumber around Southeast Texas. Driving was his life and the hardest obstacle to overcome when he could no longer be on the road. He retired for the last time in January 2013 after retiring from full time employment at the age of 83. On March 29, 1958 he married Odell Richards. Roy and Odell lived in Houston and were active in many activities. They were married for 51 years upon Odell’s death in 2009. Roy had only one request when they were married and that was to have a “White Sports Coat and a Pink Carnation” this request was honored by Odell for their wedding. They had two children-Debbie and Sharon, six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

Roy was an active member of the Masonic Lodge and Legion of Honor for the Arabia Shrine Temple. He also had a strong faith and attended a Church of God which had a small congregation but one in which he enjoyed and made many friends. Roy was a person who met friends for life. He cared about each and everyone he met-many, many of his friends were those that were friendships begun from childhood. He looked forward to the times when he could visit with old friends. In the past year he had become a member of the “What-A-Burger” breakfast club where some his age and retired met every morning for breakfast and conversation-both of which were wonderful for him, giving him something to look forward to everyday.

Roy was preceded in death by his parents-Evan and Myrtle Driskill, Wife-Odell Driskell, Son-In-Law – Robert Dyer, Brother and Sister-in-Law –Lee W. and Edna Driskill, Sister and Brother-in-Law June and Truman Thibodeaux, Sister – Lorraine Driskill.

Grandchildren: Jennifer Dyer Godbout and Daniel Godbout, Kimberly Dyer Sparks and Jonathon Sparks, Bubba Dyer and Megan Stanley, Lisa Hersley, Megan Hersley Kinney and Kyle Kinney, and Courtney Hersley. Great-Grandchildren: Daniella Godbout, William Dyer-Sparks, Genesis Hersley, and Jeremiah Hersley. He leaves numerous family members who he visited with every day through phone calls and visits.

The family would also like to thank those special friends who visited with him every day also, as well as those special friends who were there for many, many years and could always “just pick up where they left off” as if there were never any miles between them.

Babb

Shirley Yates Babb, 72 of Cleveland died July 8, 2014. She was born November 25, 1941 in Diboll, Texas.

Memorial service for Mrs. Babb will be 3:00 p.m., Saturday, July 12, 2014 at Pace-Stancil Funeral Home Chapel.

She was preceded in death by her mother and father, WW “Doc” and Verline Nute Yates and her brother and sister-in-law: W.R. “Ray” and Martha Yates. She is survived by husband: Thurman E. “Buddy” Babb; daughter: Dana Zambon; son-in-law: Rene W. “Bud” Beaudreault; brother-in-law: Herman Babb; sister-in-law: Jane Babb; nieces: Sandy Heck, Denise Gramm, Jeanine Thibodeaux, Joni Junca and Marlo Babb; nephews: Ray Yates, Henry Rathcke III, Troy Babb and Eddy Babb; cousins: Billy Don Selman, Nub Selman, Dean Selman, Maurice Selman and James C. Selman; friends: too many to name, but all "chosen" family.

Shirley was the sweetest person. To know her was to love her, and she loved everybody. She never met a stranger, and those who knew her can attest to that. No one could tell a story like her. She would get caught up in the details but still always come back to her main point -- and leave you feeling better for even hearing what she had to say. Her laugh was infectious, and even in her darkest hour, she had a smile on her face and a song in her heart. She leaves a void in the lives of all who knew her, but especially to the family she adored and always put first.

She was still working, even at the ripe old age of 72 -- and doing a wonderful job. She and her good friend and business partner had a successful school software business, and they ran it well, just the two of them, for over 25 years. Those she served in their business became not just clients, but dear friends who shared their lives with her. She was always there for anyone who needed her, friends and family alike.

Her hobbies were reading, cooking, sewing -- and more reading. She was such a voracious reader that she would literally stop one book and start her next one. It's what kept her entertained during her long stay in the hospital. She was also an avid bow hunter in her day, and there are a few bucks who didn't live to tell their story because of her skilled marksmanship. And boy, could she cook. Anything that came out of her kitchen was treasured. Another of her favorite hobbies was taking care of everybody she knew. She took such good care of her loved ones that she often put herself on the back burner. Buddy, her Dana-Bear and Jakie and Bonnie, her four-legged babies, will all be lost while figuring out how to carry on in her absence. That's probably a big part of why her health suffered -- she was just more concerned with those she loved than with herself. Selfless doesn't even begin to describe her nature. She leaves a hole in the hearts of many.

Jewel Catherine Davis, 92, of Anahuac, died Saturday, June 21, 2014, while visiting her daughter and son-in-law in Michigan.

She was born September 13, 1921, in Brookeland, Texas to Tom Burks and Dollie Williamson.  She married the love of her life, Earl William Davis on January 19, 1938 in Bon Wier, Texas.

Mrs. Davis enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, always believing in each and every one of them and encouraging them to pursue their dreams.  She also enjoyed sewing, crocheting, cooking, gardening, and she loved her church.  She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Earl William Davis, daughters Joyce Ellen Davis and Louise Davis, sons John Wilburn Davis and Kevin Wayne Davis, sisters Ethel Burks and Marie Burks Jean and brothers Willard, Theodore and Harold Burks.

Jewel would answer to anyone that called her “Grandma” or “Memaw”, even if you weren’t one of hers, and she was the best Grandma ever!  She wasn't monetarily well off, but had the richest soul of any, great sense of humor, loved to visit anyone that would stop by, and would play any board game we put in front of her with a smile.  She absolutely loved her dog, Angel.  Angel was her most special companion in the world, and before her it was her poodle, Holly. Friendly, kind, and turned away no stranger to feed.  She was Pentecostal and a very Christian lady. She had more Pride than anyone I ever knew and although she was a Christian, whatever gift she was given she would display proudly, so long as it was appropriate, and would make sure to tell which kid or grandkid gave it to her.

She is survived by her daughter Elouise Davis Mikulenka and husband Jim; sons Gerald Wayne Davis, Thomas Earl Davis and wife Phyllis, and William Douglas Davis and wife Dawn; sixteen grandchildren, twenty two great grandchildren and two great great grandchildren.
