Callie Gill Jr. Obituary

Deacon Callie Gill, Jr., was born on August 24, 1945, to the late Callie Gill, Sr., and Lezeta Tyus Gill in Montgomery, Alabama.

He and his family attended Holy Assembly of Jesus in Wetumpka, Alabama, under the leadership of Bishop James Ware, Sr., then Elder James Ware, Jr., and currently Elder Sylvia Ware. He was a faithful deacon and Sunday school superintendent. He was also a member of the Board of Trustees. Even though he worked several jobs, his love was working on cars.
