George L. Vance

George L. Vance 58 of Dingess, WV born December 27, 1951 passed away Monday October 25, 2010 at Dingess. He was a disabled coal miner and he enjoyed hunting, riding his four wheeler and spending time with his two grandchildren. He was of the Church of God faith. He was preceded in death by his Father Linzzie Vance and one brother Casey Vance. Those left to carry his memory include his Mother Rena Vance of Dingess. His two children Sandra K. Vance and George D. Vance (Hoobie) both of Dingess. His former wife and mother of his children Vada Deskins. Two wonderful grandchildren Jodie Vance and Chance Stollings who he loved with his whole heart. Four Brothers Keither (Edna) Vance of Breeden, Bill (Debbie) Vance of Laurel Creek, Clifford Vance and Ralph Vance both of Dingess, Three Sisters Joyce (Arthur) Deskins, Ida (Sammy) Deskins and LaDonna Adams (Chris Evans) also one special brother-in-law Chuck Adams and a host of nieces and nephews. Two special little buddies Christian Mullins and Lauren Ferris who he loved very much. He also had a lot of friends who loved him and who will miss him very much. He's Only Gone On At last his gallant soul "Took flight" into the land where there is no night", but his name is "Carved into our hearts to stay". As we think of the things that we used to say.... So he is not dead, he's only "Gone On" into a "Brighter More Wonderful Dawn". For men like him were not born to die, but like the "Sun" that shines in the "Sky" they warm the "Earth" and the "Hearts of Men " and in "Happy Remembrance" they live again... So while he sleeps and his voice is still, his spirit goes on and it always will. We Love and miss you so very much... Sadly missed by all of the people you knew and loved very much.
