All who call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
  • 52 years old
  • Born on April 28, 1917 in Carrollton, Georgia, United States.
  • Passed away on July 23, 1969 in Carrollton, Georgia, United States.

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.

Souls are still being saved. I'm still expecting Him any day, but the joys of the newly saved are precious. Ah, you know!

I expect Jesus to gather us to himself almost immediately. Maybe I'll see you there.

It is just passed Father's day and I miss you. I have many regrets as you know. If you pray, pray for me.

Hope time passes faster for you than it does here. Life's a struggle and I sometimes worry. Wish you were here to advise. -- ps I remembered the Choc Shake you got me when we went to measure some army barracks. Thanks.

You would be 95 today. You would have liked email and Bible Gateway. I have missed you. Sorry I didn't know you well.

42 years ago you died. I'm thinking of you. Often I would gladly trade places with you.

Your labors are ended. Thank you for providing for me. I never lacked anything I needed. I admired your "can do" attitude. This is TAX SEASON and I remember that you always did your own...before computer programs made it easy.
