Obituary for Willie James McLendon

Willie James McLendon, 70, died on November 29, 2017. Visitation will be Sunday from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. followed by services at 3:30 p.m. at Grace Chapel Baptist Church. Burial will be in the church cemetery. Mr. McLendon was preceded in death by his Parents, William Jackson McLendon, Jr. and Hattie Lois Caten McLendon; two sisters, Mary Janet McLendon Loper and Judy Ann McLendon Johnson and two children, James Eddie Tyson and Brenda Joyce Tyson. He is survived by six daughters, Melody (Harvey) Thin Elk, Carol Tyson, Lavetta Tyson, Davetta (Juan) Windham, Lorena Torres and Cheyenne Tyson; four sons, Stacy Tyson, David (Vilda) Tyson, John (Tonya) Tyson and Curtis (Jennie) Tyson; one brother, Leroy John (Donna) McLendon; three sisters, Kathryn Smith Moss Anderson, Billie Dean McLendon Lee and Iris Aileen McLendon LeBus; 36 grandchildren; 88 great-grandchildren; 5 great-great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews and two ex-wives, Virginia Yates and Emma Dorothy Conley Brown. If we were to list all of the people that he cared for or that cared for him, it would take a book. We just want to let everyone know that he was a very lucky and blessed man. In Mississippi and Florida he had the opportunity to have two families, but if you could ask him he would say “I have only one Big family spread out.”
