Thomas Harry Frazier 1945 - 2013

Tom is the grandson-in-law of Irene Campbell Langham of Chumuckla (the Charles and Jane Delilah Hart Campbell Family). He and his wife, Kathryn Howard Frazier (Daughter of Bernadine (Langham) and Johnny Howard) lived and worked most of the their lives in Cantonment and in retirement recently moved to St. Augustine.

 Thomas Harry Frazier was born in Duluth, Minnesota, on June 28, 1945 to Harry and Viola Frazier. As a small child he lived in Chicago, and his family moved to Florida in 1952. He graduated from Fort Lauderdale High School in 1963 and went on to attend the University of Florida, where he received Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees and where he met his wife, Katherine Howard. Tom and Katherine were married for 45 years and raised their family in Pensacola. Tom worked many years for the School District of Escambia County. His proudest accomplishment in his work was being the founding principal of Jim Bailey Middle School.

 While living in Pensacola, Tom was active with the Pensacola Jaycees, Pensacola Little Theater, Northwest Florida Gator Club, and the First Church of Christ, Scientist. He also enjoyed bowling, golfing, and playing cards, and was an accomplished pianist. In 2012 Tom and Katherine moved to Saint Augustine to live near their grandchildren.

His greatest joy in the last year and a half came from the time that he was able to spend with those three little boys. Another happy result of the move was living near Gainesville and being able to go to lots of Gator functions. In Saint Augustine he was a member of the Christian Science church and the Gator Club of Historic Saint Augustine and took classes at Saint Johns River State College. Tom was a loving husband and father and the best Grampa to his boys. He was a joyful, fun-loving, intelligent, helpful, wonderful person—a true blessing to all who knew him.

He was preceded in death by his mother and his father. He is survived by his wife, Katherine; his daughters and son-in-law, Holly Frazier and Suzanne and Jared Sandoval; his three grandsons, Jonah James Sandoval, Elijah Thomas Sandoval, and Silas Jaxon Sandoval; his brother- and sister-in-law, Keith and Laura Howard; and his nieces, Katie Howard and Annie Howard.

Floyd Quentin Enfinger 1922 - 2013

On Monday, October 14, 2013, Floyd Quentin Enfinger sailed his final voyage to family who welcomed him to Heaven's shore. Floyd was born March 6, 1922 into the family of Lewis Thompson Enfinger and Jessie Ora Steadham Enfinger, the second of six children. His parents, brothers Adrian and Alvin, and sister Ora Dean Enfinger Bailey preceded his departure. Raised on a Depression Era farm in Chumuckla, Florida, he learned to accept great responsibility at an early age. Achieving independence began by entering the CCC program in April of 1940 and moving from that to a 20-year career in the United States Navy that began on November 8 of the same year. Floyd met Gloria Atkinson, a young North Carolina farm girl, while he was on leave in Washington, D.C. and she was out on the lawn of the capital grounds. Knowing each other only a month and 2 days, they were married on June 21, 1946. Floyd served 20 years active duty before returning to his home in Chumuckla, Santa Rosa County. He became a farmer and worked for 22 years before retiring at American Cyanamid in 1984. Floyd continued to farm for an additional 10 years. He retained much of his equipment, not failing to have a garden to share with others for many years. He is survived by his wife - Gloria; 5 children - Jennifer Freeman, Floyd Q. Enfinger, Jr., Neal Christopher (Sandy) Enfinger, Beverly (Rob) Donnell, and Teressa (Bruce) Wedlund; 13 grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins, including special friends Vic Campbell and Greg Cotton. Funeral Services will be held at 11:30AM on Thursday, October 17, 2013 at the Lewis Funeral Home - Pace Chapel with Pastors David Rowan (Faith Baptist Church, Milton) and Tom Sharron (Chumuckla Community Methodist Church, Chumuckla) officiating.

Martin Salter 1944 - 2013

Martin Austin Salter was born on March 20, 1944. He lived his entire life at a little place called Rabbit Hill near Chumuckla in Santa Rosa, Florida. That is where he passed away on September 26, 2013. He fought a good fight, but his body was just too frail. A true Southern Gentleman left his circle of earthly family and friends and joined a much bigger Heavenly circle. What a rejoicing that must have been when Martin looked upon the face of his Savior, Jesus Christ.

He graduated from Chumuckla School in 1963. Throughout his high school years, he was a star member of the basketball team. He loved his team mates. He went on to referee basketball games throughout the area for many years. It was at one of those games that he met a girl named Martha Ann Raines and fell in love with her at first site. They were wed on April 10, 1965. It was a happy marriage until Martha passed away on January 05, 2012. He was with her again on Thursday afternoon where she had the evening supper table waiting for him as she had promised.

Martin retired from American Cyanamid/Sterling. He formed many friendships during those many years of work.

Mr. Salter enjoyed being a cattleman. Nothing gave him more pleasure than buying a new calf or seeing one born on his farm. It was in his genes. His heritage stretched back to ancestors that were cattlemen in the panhandle of territorial Florida. The Lord gave Martin a vivid dream that he shared often. He dreamed that in Heaven he would have beautiful fields full of cattle. That delighted him.

He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He was a keen shot and loved fishing on the creeks and river. He and his brothers, Jackie and Danny, could catch fish when no one else could. Catfish was always on the menu at family reunions. Auburn was his team and he enjoyed watching the Tiger's football games. Martin had a gift for telling wonderful stories. Everyone that knew him can remember at least one of those amusing true tells about family, friends and local adventures.

Martin was a member of Pine Level Baptist Church, where he served as a deacon. He loved serving the Lord, sharing the message, and the Gospel was always on his lips. Throughout his life, Martin brought many souls to the Lord. His crown will be beautiful when he places it at His Father's feet and Jesus says, well done my good and faithful servant.

He is preceded in death by his wife Martha Ann Raines Salter; his mother and father, John Duncan "J. D." & Ruth Wynell Hayes Salter; his brothers, Danny and baby John Salter; his grandparents, Sidney Martin & Ruth Williams Hayes, and Cuyler & Emma McGlothren Salter.

Left to cherish his memory is his devoted daughter, Angela and her husband Michael Pennell; his grandchildren, Bradley (Candace) Pennell, Katie (James) Carnley; five great grandchildren Bryce, Faith, Jacob, Elizabeth, and Gabriel; his brother, Jackie (Jane) Salter; aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, and many cousins. Post and Jazzman, his four-legged friends, will miss their master.

Special thanks to Dr. David Smith, Dr. Rogers, Dr. Humeda and their staffs for their kind attendance to Martin throughout his illness. Also a big thank you to Fresenius Medical and Amedisys for their loving kindness and care.

Martin would probably want to remind us of this comforting scripture: "So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord."

Arrangements will be held at Lewis Funeral Home, Milton, FL. Visitation will be Tuesday, Oct.1st, from 6-8 P.M. Funeral will be Wednesday, Oct.2nd, at 2 P.M. Burial service will follow immediately afterwards at Pine Level Baptist Church Cemetery.

The Eulogy for Alvin

Several people asked for this. It will be easy to share this link by email. It was my great honor to present this at the funeral for Alvin Enfinger:

Eulogy for Alvin - Exodus 20:12

Honor thy father and thy mother ..
… and thy brothers and sisters
… and thy uncles and aunts
…. and thy cousins and thy in-laws
… and thy neighbors
… and thy community and thy country
and thy fellow man.

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
Alvin  Henry Enfinger - A man of honor and respect. NOT that he expected YOU to honor him or even to respect him --- but he would RESPECT you and HONOR your presence. IT was a part of his nature. Built in. A heritage ingrained in him from birth by family that carried a sense of honor forward to the next generation.

I think some of us here witnessed yesterday a continuation of this respectfulness and honor of family and neighbors among the descendants of Alvin and Annie Doris Gilman Enfinger.  They stand proud. They look you in the eye. They KNOW who they are and they show respect and honor for this extended family in the life of their father / grandfather.

This HONOR - This RESPECT  as it is given  - it is returned with Admiration.  The lives of Alvin and Doris Enfinger gave the world a next generation and a next that Honors their union.  
Alvin’s honor and respect were directed toward the future generations and just as much toward the generations and the heritage that brought him into our world.  His respect and admiration and honors given to  his own and other families who set the stage for this  “LAND THE LORD GAVETH HIM”  was legendary - in his care of churches and cemeteries where those pioneers worshiped and were laid to rest.  You cannot bring the historic Coon Hill Cemetery into a conversation without an expression of gratitude for Alvin’s work there.
His childhood sweetheart, Annie Doris Gillman - the mother of his children - was an ardent  historical researcher and helper until her death at far too early an age. She dug far into the Campbell lineage and found records that added color and honor and remembrance to the memories of Alvin’s grandmother’s family. She found lost civil war records and more. Alvin’s grandmother was my grandfather’s sister. His dad, Lewis was my dad’s first cousin. Alvin is my second cousin.
In the hard times of the depression - which was essentially an extension of the long years of Southern Reconstruction -- the small and tightly knitted family relationships around the hamlet of Chumuckla thrived on integrity and hard work and honor and respect. They did not have a lot of anything else to trade on. Alvin talked of the many meals of biscuits and molasses when other food stocks were low or out of season.  
Alvin’s mother died after her fifth child (1931), leaving a lot of young children and a lonely father to try to care for them all.  Lillian and Floyd became cooks and housekeepers and other chores were taken up by the others including Alvin. Soon, some of the children were put in the care of other family members. Adrian, Alvin and Ora Dean went to live with their Grandmother (my Great Aunt Mag Enfinger). Jessie Jean went to Aunt Fannie Steadham Wilson --- Gaston. Lewis was able to keep working and maintain an income.
Alvin’s mother was Jessie Ora Steadham Enfinger. She brought a tremendous heritage of honor and respect to the union of she and Lewis.  Her heritage tracks back to the surviving Steadham brothers, famous for their close escape from the great massacre at Fort Mims in 1813, 200 years ago last week. The Steadhams in this area trace roots back to one of the brothers, Jesse Steadham.  The Fort Mims legacy is a part of many families in our county.
Depression times yielded to the war years and all the young men were subject to winds of war. In closing those depression years - Floyd helped Alvin break a horse in late 1939 on some fresh plowed ground. Floyd put on the halter and Alvin took the horse onto the fresh earth to let him buck out on soft ground. This was done riding bareback.  

Soon after, Floyd left to join the Navy. Alvin and Adrian remained in school. The principal at Chumuckla was the father of Alvin’s sweetheart, Annie Doris.  In 1941 they watched as their very own Chumuckla Basketball team went to the Florida state finals and WON the championship. Those players were all off to war within months. Some left early - before graduation - Empty chairs in their honor were on the stage among the graduating class who were present. Alvin saw that. He honored that.

In 1944 the war was still raging and more young men were needed. Alvin and his older brother Adrian (who had a temporary exemption for farming) were ready to sign up. Alvin joined the Navy. Adrian wanted the Navy but a fluke on the day he signed up - put him in the Army.
Alvin joined a small coastal patrol vessel designed for convoy protection and for his first week tried as hard as he could to heave his insides out over the side of the ship. But he survived. He had some convoy duty and soon the war was over. HIs brother Adrian, in the army in Europe, was killed in battle in Germany within days of the end of the war.

The loss of Adrian would affect all the family forever. Only a year before Adrian joined the Army - he had pledged funds to build the Chumuckla Methodist Church near the crossroads.  He and others in the community were HONORING one of their own , Seif Kilpatrick, a merchant marine, who died with his ship - lost without a trace in early 1942 - in the desperate attempts to get arms and material to Great Britain.  

The Kilpatricks, yielding to a plea from Alvin’s grandmother, Margaret Campbell Enfinger, donated the property for a Methodist Church in  HONOR of Seif. Little did he know at the time, but Adrian himself would soon become a sacrifice for the sake of freedom.

These things are a part of the fabric of a community and a family and the life of Alvin Enfinger and all those who were living those days with honor - and respect  - for one another.  When Alvin had an opportunity to retire from his business, years later, he would devote his labor of love to the building, expansion and care of the Chumuckla Church. He could serve God and honor his community and his forebears who gave him a heritage of honor.
After the war .. Alvin made many good decisions in sequence. He married Annie Doris. He attended the Alabama Polytechnic Institute (WAR EAGLE) and became a pharmacist. He worked for a time for others and then took an opportunity to go on his own making use of a loan secured through suppliers. He always poured the largest part of his earnings back into the business and the results of good management and a reputation for honor led to success with his business and his family. The business success allowed him to retire right back to his roots in Chumuckla - “the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.”
He was hardly retired though. He threw himself and his younger children into the farm life. A Red Angus dynasty of beef genetics grew and developed a worldwide reputation. At one time, he sold and shipped a plane-load of breeding stock to South Africa. The plane flew to Miami, then to Brazil and then to South Africa -  full of cattle and all survived and thrived.  Alvin’s work with the Red Angus breed is seen throughout the world to this day.
Annie Doris passed away far too soon. The children became managers of the business or found careers. Alvin continued to honor his past with friends and family in the area.  About a dozen years ago, my Dad, J. Lee Campbell contracted a blood disease that would eventually take his life. Dad was one of Alvin’s many friends and cousins who were a part of his life from boy to war to man to retiree ….. to the grave.

As dad gradually lost his abilities, Alvin added more care. His visits were frequent. He’d take dad for a meal of oysters at every opportunity - a repast they are both enjoying at this very moment in heaven if they have East Bay oysters there. But any oyster will do.

In his last months of mobility, Alvin physically put dad in his truck. There were several times when a loss of body control - would leave the Tom Thumb or Alvin’s truck awash in waste. Alvin would hose it out, clean up my dad and never complain. He’d take him again in a few days for more oysters or a ride in the open air of Chumuckla … “the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.”  
To Alvin, this was honoring his heritage, his people, his cousin, yes -- but honoring and respecting humanity.  There are few who would do what Alvin did for my dad in his closing days on earth. It is my great honor to speak for him today.

Did you notice the American Legion HONOR GUARD yesterday at the visitation? They came to render honors to their fellow veteran, my cousin, Alvin Henry Enfinger.  The honor guard itself was aged, disabled and marked by the years. They were here to honor Alvin.

YET -  It was such a moment of respect when everyone there stood in HONOR of THEM as they departed the building. Honor begets honor. Respect begets Respect.

Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. … And all God’s Children said AMEN. … and Amen.

Funeral services with full military honors will be held at 11:00AM Friday, May 31, 2013 at the Bath Presbyterian Church with Pastor Dick Geishman officiating. Interment will follow in the church cemetery. Jimmie was one of 14 born to the late Hazel and Francis Enfinger. Being part of a large family, he learned at a young age the value of hard work. In 1958, he joined the US Army where he rapidly gained promotions, then applied and graduated from Officers Candidate School. He served in the Vietnam War, received various awards for duty and bravery, and retired with over 20 yrs of service as a Major at Fort Gordon. Upon retiring from the Army, he began a very successful business-American Custom Fence Company. Through his honesty and hard work, his company gained the respect of not only his customers, but his competitors as well. When not working, he enjoyed time fishing with his “Briar Creek Buddies” or visiting with his dear friend, Marian. Whether they were at the “cabin” cooking, reading books, or on the road visiting state parks, this was a time he looked forward to and very much enjoyed. Jimmie dearly loved his children and grandchildren who gave him much joy. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He was also preceded in death by nine siblings, Lillian Lottie Heath, Allen Vernon Enfinger, Dorothy Barbara Donnelly, Vera Mae McBride, Althea Blum, Frances Jeanette Raybon, Howard Enfinger, Edwina Mock and Norma Jean Sumlin. Those left to mourn Jimmie include his three children, Lori Williams (Michael), Jamie Enfinger (Josie) and Jennifer Enfinger; five grandchildren, Maggie DeLoach (Joseph), Jessica Enfinger, Abby Williams, Chloe Ryle and Matthew Enfinger; the mother of his children, Bobbie Byrd; friend and companion, Marian Hearn; four siblings, Miriam Davis, Frank Enfinger, Wilton Enfinger and Gwen Riddles; numerous nieces, nephews and friends. If so desired, memorial contributions may be made to Augusta Warrior Project, 4115 Columbia Rd, Ste 5-333, Martinez GA 30907. The family will receive friends at James Funeral Home from 6:00-8:00PM Thursday, May 30, 2013. The family offers a special thanks to the doctors and nurses at the University Heart and Vascular Institute. ******************************** The Fisherman's Prayer God grant that I may live to fish for another shining day, But when my final cast is made I than most humbly pray, When nestled in you land net as I lay peacefully asleep, You'll smile at me and judge that I am good enough to keep.
