Edmund John Paley

Edmund John Paley, 94, passed away on Saturday morning, March 10, after a long and wonderful life. He is preceded by his wife of 63 years, Eileen O’Brien Paley.

The couple raised five children, four of whom are living. The family includes: Reenie Paley Marshall, husband Sam (deceased) and sons Chris and Alex and wife Magdalena; Raymond Brien Paley, wife Wanda and daughters Danielle, her husband Read Talley, and Kelly; David Edmund Paley, wife Sheila and children Cassie, Laura and her husband Alan Hardy, Leanna, Chris and wife Jennifer; John Martin Paley (deceased), his daughters Star and Ann, and their mother, Beverly Philpot; Mark Andrew Paley and sons Drew and Jackson. Ed was blessed with 10 great grandchildren.

Ed was born in Cleveland, Ohio. His parents were Alice Bowles and Fred Paley, both born in Scarborough England and raised in Aberdeen Scotland. His parents immigrated to Cleveland in 1921 where he grew up with his two sisters and three brothers.

As a child Ed would put together bicycles from parts he found at the junkyard. He invited other kids to ride the bikes around the block-for a small fee. He continued bicycle building when he began work for Murray Ohio right out of high school. Forty-four years later he retired from Murray in 1984.  As Eddie said, “I was out the door in ’84.” He had enjoyed a 34-year retirement when he passed away.

The Paley family moved to Lawrenceburg in 1956. The town became and remains their beloved home. As a community volunteer Eddie served First United Methodist Church as Sunday School Superintendent and on the Finance Committee and was also President of the Lawrence County High School Band Boosters.

Ed was an avid golfer. He played in the Murray golf league, in Lawrenceburg Country Club tournaments and many times a week with friends. He also enjoyed competing in the Murray Ohio bowling league. In later years Mr. Paley traveled with his wife and children. Destinations included Hawaii, Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio, Atlanta, Memphis, Toronto, Denver, South Carolina, California, Florida and Richmond.

Continuing his lifelong enjoyment of dance, Ed especially loved dancing with his wife at the Loretto Senior Center and at every other opportunity, from festivals to weddings to birthday and anniversary parties. After dancing the waltz and polka at an Oktoberfest in Virginia, perfect strangers gathered around the couple to ask about and compliment their graceful performance.

John Douglas Pollock

The golden voice of one of God's singers has fallen silent. John Douglas Pollock finished his earthly life on Thursday, January 11, 2018. He died peacefully at his home in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee after an extended illness surrounded by loving family and friends.

Mr. Pollock was born in the family home on South Locust Avenue in Lawrenceburg on March 7, 1932. He helped in the family business, Pollock Tire Company, through his youth and teenage years. He attended Lawrence County High School where he excelled in athletics, particularly football. He graduated in 1949 and attended Freed Hardeman University, David Lipscomb University, and Middle Tennessee State University.

He then enlisted in the Unites States Air Force, where he had assignments in England and Greenland. He became quite proficient in electronics, and when he left the military service he used these skills in his civilian life. He worked for Teledyne and Union Carbide for many years, and he later taught at various vocational schools in the area. Mr. Pollock was a faithful member of the First Street Church of Christ in Lawrenceburg at the time of his death. He loved to sing, and he was called upon frequently to lead the singing in the churches he attended through the years. His sweet voice will be missed by those who admired his abilities.

"Doug, as his family and friends called him, was a wonderful, devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He was a wonderful storyteller, having a marvelous recall of people, places and events. He served as the family historian, meticulously researching genealogical records. He was hilariously funny and lit up the room wherever he was.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Randolph Robertson and Willie Lynch Pollock; his first wife, Patty Flippo Pollock; one sister, Sarah Edwards; brother and sister-in-law, Fred and Fran Pollock; and his brother-in-law, Milas Flippo.

Edwards; and sister-in-law, Velta Flippo; as well as numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Edmund John Paley

Edmund John Paley, 94, passed away on Saturday morning, March 10, after a long and wonderful life. He is preceded by his wife of 63 years, Eileen O’Brien Paley.

The couple raised five children, four of whom are living. The family includes: Reenie Paley Marshall, husband Sam (deceased) and sons Chris and Alex and wife Magdalena; Raymond Brien Paley, wife Wanda and daughters Danielle, her husband Read Talley, and Kelly; David Edmund Paley, wife Sheila and children Cassie, Laura and her husband Alan Hardy, Leanna, Chris and wife Jennifer; John Martin Paley (deceased), his daughters Star and Ann, and their mother, Beverly Philpot; Mark Andrew Paley and sons Drew and Jackson. Ed was blessed with 10 great grandchildren.

Ed was born in Cleveland, Ohio. His parents were Alice Bowles and Fred Paley, both born in Scarborough England and raised in Aberdeen Scotland. His parents immigrated to Cleveland in 1921 where he grew up with his two sisters and three brothers.

As a child Ed would put together bicycles from parts he found at the junkyard. He invited other kids to ride the bikes around the block-for a small fee. He continued bicycle building when he began work for Murray Ohio right out of high school. Forty-four years later he retired from Murray in 1984.  As Eddie said, “I was out the door in ’84.” He had enjoyed a 34-year retirement when he passed away.

The Paley family moved to Lawrenceburg in 1956. The town became and remains their beloved home. As a community volunteer Eddie served First United Methodist Church as Sunday School Superintendent and on the Finance Committee and was also President of the Lawrence County High School Band Boosters.

Ed was an avid golfer. He played in the Murray golf league, in Lawrenceburg Country Club tournaments and many times a week with friends. He also enjoyed competing in the Murray Ohio bowling league. In later years Mr. Paley traveled with his wife and children. Destinations included Hawaii, Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio, Atlanta, Memphis, Toronto, Denver, South Carolina, California, Florida and Richmond.

Continuing his lifelong enjoyment of dance, Ed especially loved dancing with his wife at the Loretto Senior Center and at every other opportunity, from festivals to weddings to birthday and anniversary parties. After dancing the waltz and polka at an Oktoberfest in Virginia, perfect strangers gathered around the couple to ask about and compliment their graceful performance.

Arrangements are being handled by Neal Funeral Home, 231 N. Military Avenue, Lawrenceburg, Tennessee.  The family will receive friends from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at Neal Funeral Home.
