Denny Grant Segrest, went to swag the gates of Heaven on Monday, January 23, 2012. We may never understand why God takes someone before we're ready, but obviously He is planning a fantastic party and needs an outstanding decorator; God chose the best!
Denny was born August 8, 1956 and spent his entire life in Chumuckla, Florida.
He was preceded in death by his father, Wilfred Segrest, and his grandparents, Claude Grant, Maggie Kelly Grant, and Robert and Bessie Segrest.
He is survived by his mother, Odene Grant Segrest; his sister and brother-in-law, Linda and Mack Wombles; his special cousin, Glennie Faye Hearn; his God-children, Melanie Gaylard Gibbs, Jason Gaylard, Justin Gaylard, and Mikayla Thomas; his special phone friends, Tessie Williams, Dot Germann, and Lillian Ward; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins, who all loved him very much.
Denny never met a stranger. He was a bright and shining star who touched the lives of many people all over the world. To know him was to love him.
Visitation will be Friday, January 27, from 5:00 until 8:00 PM at the Lewis Funeral Home, Milton Chapel. A celebration of his life will be held at 1:00 PM on Saturday, January 28, 2012 at the funeral home with burial to follow at Elizabeth Chapel Cemetery.
Pastor Joey Rogers and Bishop Vincent Warren will be officiating. Pallbearers will be Denny's cousins. Lewis Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
