The family will receive friends on Sunday, January 31, 2021, from 1:00 until 3:00 PM at Max Brannon and Sons Funeral Home, with the service to follow at 3:00 PM in the Chapel of Max Brannon and Sons with Rev. Eddie Manning officiating. Pallbearers are, Chris Ponto, Michael Southerland, Charles Luhrman, Harold Davis, and Jeff Allen.
Due to the national health crisis, the Governor of Georgia’s order states that crowds are limited to no more than 50 people, masks are required, and social distancing guidelines are to be observed. Because we know this limits the number of people who can attend services in our chapel, all services are being recorded with the family’s permission. The service may be viewed later on our funeral home website, www.maxbrannonandsons.com.
