Mr. C. Wade "Paw"   Johnson

Mr. C. Wade "Paw" Johnson

December 6, 1942 - July 18, 2018

Mr. Carl Wade "Paw" Johnson (75) of North Augusta, SC, entered into rest at home surrounded by his family on July 18, 2018. Memorial services will be conducted at 5:30 on Wednesday July 25, 2018 at North Augusta Southern Methodist Church. Rev. Wayne Turpin will be officiating. There will be one hour of visitation held before the service.

 

Wade was a wonderful husband to Jearrie, his wife of 56 years, and the proud father of three daughters, grandfather of six children, and great grandfather of three more. All of whom lovingly called him Paw. Originally from Knoxville TN, he moved to the area 55 years ago to manage Munford Do-It-Yourself (later changed to Munford Home Center). Fourteen years later he bought the company and went on to open several U-Finish-It Furniture stores. Often called Mr. Munford, Wade was hardworking and best known to his friends and customers for his honesty, integrity, and dependability. He was a good friend who was always willing to help anyone in need and never expected anything in return.

 

Paw was very active and was always busy doing something. He enjoyed “piddling” around outside, growing vegetables in his garden, keeping bees, making pancakes and bacon for his grandkids, helping “old” people, making things out of wood, and “propping up” and watching westerns. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

 

He was preceded in death by daughter, Rhonda V. Johnson. Survivors include his wife Jearrie Johnson; daughters Carlene (Dondi) Hydrick, Pine Mountain, GA and Heather (Shojiro) Satoh, Tokyo Japan; honorary daughters Charlotte and Mia Charfen, Hawaii; six grandchildren, Stephanie (Jon) Almasy, Samantha (Dixie) Hydrick, Toby Hydrick, Jay Hydrick, Nana Satoh, and Jun Satoh; great grandchildren, Alex, Ayden, and Andy Almasy.  

 

Arlington Burial and Cremation are in charge of the arrangements.

 Felipe Osvaldo  Dominguez

Felipe Osvaldo Dominguez

July 28, 1951 - July 14, 2018

Felipe Osvaldo Dominguez age 66 of Grovetown, GA entered into rest on Saturday, July 14, 2018. 

Felipe is preceded in death by Manuel Dominguez & Ana Mercedes Mata (Parents) and Sonia Dominguez (Sister).  Survivors include his Spouse: Cristina Dominguez, Children: Starsky & wife Viseddy, Dwayne & wife Esther, Siblings: Santiago, Maria Eugenia, Radhames, Manuel, Daisy, Jesus, Marco & Homero Dominguez, Grandchildren: Elian, Eliza, David & Daliany, Others: Ana Mata (Aunt), Brothers & Sisters-in-Law, nephews and nieces, cousins and family friends which are too many to mention that are all loved and considered as well as part of our family.

Felipe was happily married to Cristina for more than 40 years. They were truly together for better or worse. It was clear for all that his priority and commitment was to his family. From their marriage came two boys, which in turn provided them with four lovely grandchildren. He was proud of his native Dominican Republic, reminisce about old times and visited his homeland regularly. He worked for many years as a taxi driver, but was a jack of all trades. He had a passion for music, which lead him to study in his younger years to become a radio host (announcer). Loved to clean his cars, he could spend up to two days doing that. He loved baseball and was a die-hard Liceista. One of his other passion was gardening, as with his cars he could spend days working on the back and front yard of the house. Dominoes was also one of his delights, he enjoyed his time playing with family and friends. His favorite phrase when playing with a partner before starting the round: "Oye... Repite, mata y tranca!!". He was a joker and a genius assigning people nicknames, nicknames that were welcomed, loved and accepted by those graced with them. He loved fooling around with kids. All kids somehow gravitated to him, they would all seek him, ask for him when it had been a while since they last talked to him or saw him. They would help him in whatever he was doing and loved to be around him. But one of his greatest enjoyments were his grandkids. When they were around him, all you heard was laughter. He would make up songs for them and sing it to them over the phone. But one of their favorite things to do with him was sit and enjoy a nice cup of his famous Abuelo Juice. He would prepare gallons of it for everyone, but would mostly for them.  

One of his greatest lessons to us was that family is the most important thing. Family for you was not just defined by blood or relationship. You made that clear to everyone in the relationships you built. Your smile, sense of humor and wisdom will be missed but you will live on in our hearts and memories. Nos chequeamos horita, cojalo suave por la sombrita!!!

Felipe estuvo felizmente casado con Cristina por más de 40 años. Estaban realmente juntos para bien o para mal. Fue claro para todos que su prioridad y compromiso era con su familia. De su matrimonio surgieron dos niños, que a su vez les proporcionaron cuatro preciosos nietos. Estaba orgulloso de su natal República Dominicana, recordaba los viejos tiempos y visitaba regularmente su patria. Trabajó durante muchos años como taxista, pero era un experto en todos los oficios. Tenía una pasión por la música, lo que lo llevó a estudiar en sus años más jóvenes para convertirse en un presentador de radio (locutor). Una de sus pasiones era limpiar sus autos, podría pasar hasta dos días haciendo eso. Le encantaba el béisbol y era un Liceista acérrimo. Una de sus otras pasiones era la jardinería, y como con sus autos podía pasar días trabajando en el patio trasero y el frente de la casa. El domino también fue una de sus  pasatiempos favoritos, disfrutaba jugar con familiares y amigos. Su frase favorita al jugar con un compañero antes de comenzar la ronda: "Oye ... Repite, mata y tranca!!". Era un bromista y un genio poniendoles apodos a las personas, apodos que eran aceptados y bienvenidos, por aquellos a los que el agraciaba con ellos. Le encantaba jugar con niños. Todos los niños de alguna manera gravitaron hacia él, todos lo buscaban, preguntaban por él cuando había pasado un tiempo desde la última vez que hablaban con él o lo habian visto. Lo ayudaban en lo que sea que estuviese haciendo y le encantaban estar con él. Pero uno de sus mayores placeres fueron sus nietos. Cuando estaban cerca de él, todo lo que se oia eran risas. Él inventaba canciones para ellos y se las cantaba por teléfono. Pero una de sus actividades favoritas con él era sentarse y disfrutar de una buena taza de su famoso Abuelo Juice. Él prepararaba galones de su jugo para todos, pero lo hacía principalmente para ellos.

Una de sus mejores lecciones para nosotros fue que la familia es lo más importante. La familia para ti no solo se definió por sangre o relación. Lo dejaste claro a todos en las relaciones que construiste. Su sonrisa, sentido del humor y sabiduría serán extrañados, pero vivirán en nuestros corazones y recuerdos. Nos chequeamos horita, cojalo suave por la sombrita !!!

Salmo 23 (22) El Señor es mi pastor.- El es mi pastor; nada me puede faltar. Ante mí está la mesa y la copa de Cristo; recibí, mejor que la unción de aceite sagrado, la del Espíritu Santo (1Juan 2, 27); espero, no el descanso de la muerte, sino el de la resurrección junto al Padre.

 

Psalm 23 (22) The Lord is my shepherd. He is my shepherd; nothing can miss me. Before me is the table and the cup of Christ; I received, better than the anointing of sacred oil, that of the Holy Spirit (1 John 2:27); I hope, not the rest of death, but that of the resurrection with the Father.

February 15, 1971 - July 5, 2018

 

Heike Gabriele Asbury (Kirch) passed away while among her family in the comfort of her home on July 5th in Evans, Georgia at the age of 47 ending her nearly 18 year battle with metastatic breast cancer.

Heike is survived by her husband, Mr. Kelly John Asbury Sr.; children, Kelly John Asbury Jr., Sean Cordell Asbury; siblings, Mrs. Elke Margarete Rabensteiner of Klausen, South Tyrol, Italy. Mrs. Gabriele Eva Joern of Punta Gorda, FL, Mrs. Petra Damara Barbara Fieger, of Neutraubling, Germany, Mr. Reiner Herbert  Michael Kirch of Neutraubling Germany,  and Mr. Ingo Maximilian Kirch of Koln, Germany.

Heike was born on 15 February 1971 in Volkach, Germany to Adolf Maximilian and Rosamunda Kirch. She graduated from Hauptschule Volkach in 1987. She married Kelly John Asbury Sr. on August 5th, 1994, an American Soldier serving in the Army in Kitzingen Germany. This union was proof that a best friend and a true love can be found in one person halfway around the world in the most obscure of fleeting moments. The couple, after a few years, decided life needed more complexity and spontaneous challenges, which lead to planning a family. Heike and Kelly welcomed two children into their home and Kelly Jr. and Sean Cordell, who set about teaching them that parenting looked easier on television and in the movies. Heike's children remember her as a stern, fair, and fun mother who was a friend and encouraged them to pursue their goals and to become honorable men that will live long fruitful lives exploring the world on their terms.

Heike was accomplished at cooking and insisted on never using a cookbook or recipe at home, much as she did with life in general. Heike was an Unselfish, brutally honest, extremely generous, no-nonsense, witty and private individual who took life by the bull's horns. Heike loved her work for the Columbia County school district and who was passionate about taking care of the schoolchildren as a Nutrition manager at Greenbrier Middle School.

 Joseph Murray  Owens

Joseph Murray Owens

August 31, 1988 - June 22, 2018

Joseph Murray Owens, 29, gained his angel wings on June 22, 2018. He was the loving son of JoAn Murray Owens and the late Dr. Ronald E. Owens.   He adored his grandparents, the late Joe and “MeMa” Elizabeth Murray and the late Herbert and “Nana” Pearl Owens.  He enjoyed hanging out with his brother, Ronnie Owens and was Uncle Jo Jo to his niece Nathalia Carlson.  His good-natured spirit will be missed by his Aunt Cynthia Murray Hornsby, Aunt Julie and Uncle Tim Tedesco and Uncle Chuck Owens, Uncle Bill and Aunt Jackie Shiver, as well as a host of cousins and other family. His Aunt Annette Shiver greeted him at the gates of heaven.  His absence will cause a huge hole in the Family of Fellas Fraternity.  While he is absent in the flesh, his loving spirit will be carried in the hearts of all who were fortunate to know and to love him.

Joseph had a heart of gold, put his family and friends first and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.  He was mischievous and loved a good joke.  His smile could warm anyone’s heart or light up a room.  He was an angel on earth.  His size and personality earned him a number of nicknames like Uncle Foof, Foofer Man, Hollywood, Big Joe, Modie, Leroy, Joe the Hoe and Little S**t, Baby Love, Baby Boy, Josephina, Jose and of course, Joe.

Joseph worked at Plant Vogtle as a pipefitter apprentice with Union Local 150. He said that it was the best decision that he ever made.  He was an avid hunter and fisherman, passions he shared with his father and brother.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 30, 2018, at 11:00 am at Saint Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, 471 Martintown Road, North Augusta, SC 29841.  The family will receive friends after the service at the church.
