Norman Gay Haymon

Norman Gay Haymon was the youngest son of 10 children born to Climmie R. and Ella Turner Haymon. He came into the world on February 4, 1921 and went to be with the Lord on April 18, 2020. He was 99 years young.


On March 1, 1941, he married his wonderful wife Irene Nash Haymon. They had three lovely children, Norman Dale, Martha Jane, and Darell Lynn. Later he enjoyed the most beautiful years with his second wife Ernestine Hicks Pelt Haymon.


Although faced with the challenges of having his entire family pass before him, he was never defeated because of his faith in Christ. He was a faithful member of the Rosepine UPC and loved receiving the perfect attendance awards and visiting with his pastor, Brother Bankston and his church family. Fishing and gardening passed the time for Norman and he loved having everyone over for a delicious fish fry or going around sharing his vegetables from his bountiful garden. He was a bus driver for the Rosepine school district, and cherished all the children he knew during that time. Norman was a Godfearing man of integrity that will be greatly missed by family, friends and the community. In his 99 years he touched the lives of many people with his love for Christ.


Thank you to all the caregivers, family and friends for honoring him during his life.
