All who call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

This memorial website was created in memory my father, William Marvin Chance,  who was born on April 28, 1917 and passed away on July 24th, 1969.  Medically, he died of an accute myocardial infarction.  He had taken nitroglycerin for years for angina and when they did an autopsy after his death the doctor said his heart was a solid scar.  He had smoked all his life and had been disabled for a number of years because he was overcome by smoke from a house fire...but he probably stopped fighting for life when mother died.

He was buried in the Old Carrollton Primitive Baptist Church cemetery next to his wife Dartha Jean (for 24 years, 9 months) in Sand Hill, Georgia on July 25th.  Rev Larry Bauman shared the Officiating duties with Mr. Steward Martin in the Martin Hightower Funeral home who handled the arrangements. Marvin was survived by his three sons: William Daniel Chance of Douglasville, Georgia, Michael David Chance, of Carrollton, GA, and Donald Mark Chance of Carrollton Georgia.
